He says, ” It’s all about the family!” When he’s not working, he loves spending recreation time with his wife Sue and three sons Adam, Tyler, and Shawn. Growing up alot of the boys’ time was spent playing baseball as Little League, Little League All Star, and the traveling AAU League. When baseball was in the far and few between off seasons fishing was were the family spent the rest of the time. Between fishing the local waters of the Greater Tampa Bay, Sarasota, and Bradenton area or the Florida Keys, the Gochers bring in the big catch every time.

Sue Gocher works in the office and is a staple in what keeps the company together. Sue has also spent many days donating her time in the community during Chamber of Commerce events and has been a key part of the company since day one. Sue also enjoys hitting the water just like the Gocher men and is an avid diver and loves fishing along side her boys.

Shawn graduated from college in 2006 and is now out on his own doing remarkably well. Tyler is currently learning the family business working in the field and attending an electrical apprenticeship program. Learning from our staff Tyler is becoming a quality electrician.
