Dennis J. Mogan, IV

Salisbury - Dennis J. Mogan, IV, age 40, of Salisbury, passed away at his home on Friday, January 8, 2021 after a brief but courageous fight with ALS. Born in Pittsburgh, PA he was the son of Dennis and Virginia Mogan. "Denny" moved to Salisbury at the age of 12 and graduated from James M. Bennett High School in 1998. He attended Hampden Sydney College in Virginia where he played lacrosse and graduated from Salisbury University.

Denny had a passion for hospitality and worked in the restaurant industry in Salisbury and Ocean City for more than twenty years. He was a strong supporter of the revitalization of Downtown Salisbury and was proud in 2019 when he realized his lifelong dream of opening Mogan's Oyster House in Salisbury. Denny was an enthusiastic supporter of youth sports programs including soccer and lacrosse. His love and support for his Pittsburgh Steelers football team never wavered. Mogan was an active member of Wicomico Presbyterian Church where he served as a trustee and an elder.

In addition to his parents, Denny is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Kateryna and his two sons, Michael, age 9 and Jack, age 6, as well as his brother, Bradley Mogan of Salisbury and his sister, Carrie Fore (Robert) of Houston, TX.

Due to COVID restrictions, in-person attendance will be private to the immediate family. Friends are encouraged to join the live service webcast on Wed. Jan. 13, 2021 at 11AM at Wicomico Presbyterian Church's YouTube Page. The family will be outside of Mogan's Oyster House on S. Division Street on Wed.

Dearest Mogan Family,
Denny was my high school and beyond friend. From youth group and Mexico mission trips to football games and cheering together at JMB, Denny was always laughing and the life of the party. More importantly, he had his priorities in order. He made church cool. I am a better person for knowing him. I am so glad he got to see his restaurant dream happen. Denny gained his success from his own dedication, but also from amazing parents, brother, sister and support of his wife and kids. I am praying for all of you. What a loss for us, but I know he is pain free with Jesus. Love you all.
