Joseph M. Necessary
Joseph M. Necessary


Joseph ‘Joe’ Michael Necessary , beloved father, cherished husband, and the man who defined ‘friend’ to so many, left our side, April 8, 2017.

A native of Landover, Maryland, Joe was gifted to the world on June 8, 1970.

He quickly became a favorite adopted son to the Myrtle Beach area. He proudly wore the badge and uniform of a police officer and fought for justice in the cities of Georgetown and Myrtle Beach. Well respected and serving with great honor, Joe inspired many to do the same. But what Joe actually did for a living was be an amazing person. Whether it was as father, husband, son, brother, officer, coach, coworker, or friend…his job was to make you smile. He did this often and with ease. Joe was a dedicated fan to his Pittsburgh Steelers and other teams. He had a profound love for music and riding his motorcycle. He shared his passions with friends and family. Full of wisdom, humor, and love…a conversation with Joe was a true gift. He could often be found at Manny’s Deli sharing his insights on life, sports, and all things that mattered. Laughter was always present at these moments. Aptly named in life, Joe was for all of us, Necessary.

Missing Joe will be his wife Mickey Necessary, and his son Jake Necessary who both made Joe so very proud. He leaves his mother, Sara Necessary, his sister, Sherri Necessary, his brother, David Necessary Jr. and seven nieces and nephews. Joe joins his father, David Necessary Sr. and his father in-law Francis Mickey, and his brother in-law Scott Mickey who had passed prior.

The family will receive friends on Thursday April 13, 2017 at McMillan-Small Funeral Home from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM and from 4:00 pm to 6:00 PM.

A memorial celebration of life will be 6:30 PM Thursday, April 13, 2017 at 6:30 PM with Konata Reid presiding.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that you make donations to Jake’s college tuition – GoFundMe https://www.gofundme.com/5pm72-jakes-college-fund or Hospice. They ask you to honor Joe’s memory by making the world a better place. Love, Laugh and Inspire like Joe did.

I'm am truly sorry to hear of his passing. When I moved to Myrtle Beach and was employed with the department, he was one of my FTO's. He was very knowledgeable, intelligent and all around fun to work with. He will be missed by many. Prayers to family and friends. "310"

Was saddened to learn of this. Grew up knowing Joe, Sherri, and David. All were very kind to me. Lots of good memories, even that one time when the dog bit me. My deepest sympathy to the entire family. Way too soon.

Uncle Joe, you were the greatest Uncle and friend I could have ever asked for. I will never forget the advice and words of encouragement you always gave me. You showed me what a great life can be like. Your words always left joy in my heart. I will always love you and never, ever forget you. Until we meet again Rest In Peace . Your nephew, Lil Joey Necessary.

Joe was a great friend and co-worker. I met him after Hurricane Floyd, and after things flooded; he never was discouraged. Always a smile on his face, and an open heart, he was always willing to help.
You will be missed; but never forgotten. Until we see each other again; Say Hello to those amigos that have gone before us.
God Bless you and your family always!

Officer Necessary (Joe)..
He was my Field Training Officer in MBPD after I completed the Academy in April 2001..I got lucky to have Joe..He was cool and respectful towards me and everyone!.During our long days together, I learned that he loved working Long South..enjoyed lunch at Mannys, and talked way too much about the Steelers. However, the thing I remember the most is how his face lit up whenever he mentioned Mickey and his baby, Jake. God Bless!

I am so sorry to hear this news. I never met Joe in person, but spoke with him over the phone and texts. Praying for comfort and peace for family and friends.
