Jul 8, 2020
Todd Joseph Shockro passed away in Delaware on April 1, at the age of 42.
He was raised in Mattapoisett, the beloved son of John and Cathy Shockro, and had moved to Delaware over 20 years ago when he joined his brother as a lifeguard on the Rehoboth Beach Patrol. In later years he worked in the restaurant business and as a basketball coach at Wesley College in Dover, Deleware. He enjoyed skiing, golfing, basketball and camping with his family. Todd’s greatest joy was time spent with his daughters.

While Todd resided in Delaware, he cherished his roots in Mattapoisett. He was an avid fan of Boston sports.

Survivors include his parents; his partner Jessica Moore and their children, Margaret and Elizabeth Shockro; siblings Derek Shockro and his wife Katie of Lewes, Deleware, Timothy Shockro and his wife Katey of Windham, New Hampshire, John Shockro and his wife Tiffany of Mattapoisett, and Kateri Rebello and her husband Nathan of Fairhaven.

Todd was the grandson of the late Joseph and Margaret Goslin and Raymond and Agnes Shockro. He also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
