Obituary of Terence J. Mogan
Terence J. Mogan, 77, of Bonita Springs, FL and Manasquan, NJ passed away unexpectedly on Sunday October 2, 2022 with his loving family by his side. Terry was born in Brooklyn, NY to James and Helen (Fallon) Mogan and was one of seven siblings. He was a graduate of the prestigious Regis High School in New York City and continued his journey for a higher education at Fordham University and New York University. Terry met the love of his life and wife of 56 years, Lorraine (Gambino) Mogan, at the age of 17, and together they went on to have three wonderful daughters, Debbie, Wendy and Christy. Terry strived for excellence in all that he pursued, ultimately serving as Chief Credit Officer and Managing Director of Bankers Trust Company (now Deutsche Bank). He retired in 1999 after 30 plus years of dedication to a job he loved. He was a kind and generous man in so many ways.
Terry was an avid runner who completed over twelve marathons, and he had a true passion for the game of golf. However, nothing gave him more pleasure than spending time with his family. His wife, daughters and grandchildren were his top priority and greatest source of happiness and pride. He especially enjoyed his grandchildren’s antics, activities, and accomplishments, which always brought a smile to his face. A loving husband, dad, grandpa (aka” Baca”), brother, brother-in-law, friend, and legend within his industry. Terry will be dearly missed.
Terry was predeceased by two brothers, Brian and Kevin Mogan. He is survived by his wife, Lorraine Mogan; three daughters, Deborah Knowles and her husband, Kenneth, Gwendolyn Phillips and her husband, Jonathan and Christina Hatzfeld and her husband, Michael; eight grandchildren, Caitlin Knowles, Justin Knowles, Ryan Knowles, Andrew Knowles, Jack Phillips, Evan Phillips, Anna Hatzfeld, and Natalie Hatzfeld; four siblings, James Mogan, Maureen Lewin, Michael Mogan, and Gerard Mogan; and one dedicated sister-in-law, Marie Gambino-Samaha.
