Craig S. Packard



Craig S. Packard, 47 of Nashua passed away unexpectedly on December 16, 2023. He was born in Southbridge, MA on September 14, 1976, to Stephen Packard and the late Debra (Bertrand) Lavallee.

In his free time, Craig found solace and joy in various activities that brought him closer to nature and adventure. He loved the feeling of freedom as he rode motorcycles through winding roads, embraced the tranquility of boating on calm waters, and reveled in the simplicity of camping under starry skies. Each moment he spent engaging in these hobbies allowed him to fully immerse himself in the present and experience a true sense of happiness.

Craig's spirit lives on within the cherished memories left behind by those who had the privilege of knowing him. He will forever be remembered for his lively personality, his passion for life, and his ability to bring laughter to any situation.

Craig is survived by his father Stephen and his wife Susan, his two siblings Neil Packard and his wife Melissa, and Angela Bourdeau and her husband Matt. He will forever hold a special place in the hearts of his nieces and nephews: Dylan Packard, Aaron Packard, Ethan Davenport, Jarrod Davenport, Jordan Packard, and Cody Senical. His girlfriend Julie Dempsey provided unwavering love and support throughout their time together.

During this challenging time of loss, Craig's family finds comfort in the embrace of his maternal grandmother Julie Bertrand as well as several cousins, aunts, uncles, and numerous dear friends who have shared both joyful moments and difficult times with him over the years.

To honor Craig's memory, a celebration of his life will take place on FRIDAY, December 29th from 4 until 9 pm at the American Legion, located at 507 Main Street, Sturbridge, MA 01518. This gathering will allow family and friends to come together, sharing stories, laughter, and tears as they pay tribute to a beloved soul who touched their lives in countless ways.
