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 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"

A truly honorable and amazing man, a man I was proud to call friend. The world will be worse off without your kind and gentle nature. I had the great honor of working side by side with Joe in law enforcement. He was a true public servant and one of the best people I know. Rest In Peace, my brother in arms.

I know I am just one of the many MANY people who can say that Joe was my friend. And I am not alone in the feeling that there are no words that can express the sorrow I feel. I haven\'t seen the Necessary family in such a long time but you were always in my heart. I will treasure the times with Joe, hanging out in the parking lot of the softball field WELL after I should have been home, with his huge smile, deep laugh and big hearted attitude. Mickey, please know that if you ever need anything that I can help with, all you have to do is ask.

With Love,
Mark and Katherine Fandel

Our prayers go out to Mickey and Jake, we are so very sorry for the loss of a Great Man. When my Mother passed Joe was the first person to call me. He was a class act from the second he woke up in the morning. Even if I hadn\'t seen him in years he would shake my hand and smile like we had just spoke a min. Ago. I will miss kn him very much.
Many prayers and love
The Catcher Family

Joe was truly the most amazing person I have ever had the privilege of knowing. He was always there for others and never expected to be acknowledged for it, he just did it. Thank you Joe for your service to the community and all you have done for my family over the years. I know that you made a difference in so many lives and there are not enough words for me to truly express what you meant to so many. We will always love you. We we keep the family in our thoughts and prayers.
