Bruce Alan Sandberg




CHARLTON: Bruce Alan Sandberg, 88 of The Overlook, passed away on Sunday, December 17th, after a period of illness.

 Bruce leaves behind his beloved wife and high school sweetheart, Nancy (Loring) Sandberg, with whom he shared sixty-six of marriage. In addition to Nancy, he is survived by his daughter, Carolyn Gregoire and her husband Bob of Westford, and his brother Richard Sandberg of Chelmsford. He also leaves a lasting legacy through his four cherished grandchildren: Ashley Sandberg of Leominster, James Gregoire, MD and his wife Briana O’Leary MD of Boston, Joseph Sandberg of Bridgeton, Maine, and Emily Gregoire of Boothbay Harbor, ME. Bruce was also the proud great-grandfather of Aerial and Elijah of Fitchburg.

Tragically, Bruce experienced the loss of his son, David Sandberg, in 2010. He was also predeceased by his three sisters: Glenna Silva, Jean Toby, and Phyllis Sandberg.

After spending most of their married life raising their children in Chelmsford, MA and 14 years on Cape Cod in Hyannis, MA, Bruce and Nancy established their home at The Overlook in Charlton in 2013. He retired from the Polaroid Corporation after dedicating 23 years of his life to the company.

 He found solace and joy in tending to his garden and embracing the beauty of nature’s bounty as a shell fisherman. As an active participant in the Barnstable Shell Fishing Group, he embraced the serenity of the sea and looked forward to enjoying his catch [1] of-the day.

Throughout his life, Bruce possessed an unwavering passion for all genres of music. During his time at The Overlook, Bruce enriched his days by lending his voice to the choir; assisting with the movie projection for the Saturday night movies; engaging in spirited pool games; brewing beer with the Brew Crew; and engaging in conversation with fellow residents.

He was also an esteemed member of the Rose of Sharon Lodge situated at The Overlook. Many of us will always remember Bruce for his knack of telling good jokes, his knowledge of history and passion for sports and trivia.

 Bruce’s Memorial Service will be at 1PM, Saturday, January 6, 2024, in The Overlook’s Nichols Chapel, 88 Masonic Home Road, Charlton.

Belanger-Bullard Funeral Home, 51 Marcy St. Southbridge is directing arrangements.
