Michael J. Gallagher, DDS, of Horsham Twp., passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at Doylestown Hospital with family at his side. He was 67 years of age.

Michael was the loving companion and best friend of Delores McDyre.

Born in Philadelphia, he was the son of the late Mary and Dr. James M. Gallagher.

Michael attended La Salle College High School, La Salle University, and Temple University, where he attained his Doctorate in Dental Surgery. In 1979, Michael started his own dental practice in Warrington, PA which he successfully managed and grew for 40 years.

In his free time, Michael enjoyed life to the absolute fullest. Michael and Delores loved to travel, attend sporting events, but more than anything he loved spending time with his family. He was also an avid golfer and enjoyed playing 18 holes with his good friends at Old York Road Country Club. In addition, Michael loved the outdoors, especially when he was fishing and hunting at Mink Pond Club in Bushkill, PA.

In addition to Delores, Michael is survived by his two sons, Shawn Gallagher (Kelly) and Bryan Gallagher; 11 grandchildren, Liam, Madelyn, Colin, Montess, Liam, Grace, Ella, Ireland, Jackson, Sophia, Angelica; two sisters, Cathy Marri (Peter), Mary Beth Creveling, a brother-in-law, Joe McMenamin; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In addition to his parents, Michael is preceded in death by a sister, Celia McMenamin and a brother-in-law, Jeff Creveling.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, February 7, 2020 at 12:00 PM at St. Robert Bellarmine Church, 856 Euclid Ave., Warrington, PA. Family will receive friends from 10:00-12:00 PM prior to the Mass. Interment will be private at the convenience of the family.

MB, I know how very much Mike meant to you. From walking you down the aisle, to being a source of strength and comfort for you after Jeff’s passing, he was more than just a big brother. Sending love and peace to you, Brian Shawn and Dee at this very difficult time. May you find comfort in the people who love you. My deepest condolences.

Marybeth.....You and Michael had such a special bond. At times, I was so jealous. Michael truly blessed your family with the good Old Irish way of life. May Michael be at peace and embraced at the Pearly Gates by those who loved him so dearly. Brian, Shawn, Cathy, and Dee, My deepest condolences to you. May your memories of this great guy bring you comfort.
