Obituary

John Richard Gallagher, MD, age 93, of Medford, NJ passed away while surrounded by loving family on Tuesday, January 7, 2020.

Dr. Gallagher was born in Philadelphia, PA and had resided in Lumberton, NJ, Moorestown, NJ and Cinnaminson, NJ before moving to Medford. He was the co-founder of Rancocas Valley Hospital and delivered over 10,000 babies over his 40 year career as an OBGYN. In his leisure, he enjoyed playing Bridge, Poker, and spending time with his family and friends at the shore. But above all, he cherished the time spent with family and will be deeply missed by those he leaves behind.

John was predeceased by his beloved spouse, Jeanne (nee Griesser) Gallagher; sisters, Catherine Barone, Nancy Leva, Claire Gallagher; son-in-law, Gregory Braun. He is survived by his children, John Gallagher, MD (Diane), Dennis Gallagher, Barbara Day (Timothy), James Gallagher (Elaine), Judith Braun, MD, Timothy Gallagher (Christine); 15 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren.
