Craig Williams Obituary

Craig J. Williams, 71 of Marlborough, died peacefully after a brief illness on Tuesday, February 6, 2024. Craig was born in Marlborough, MA, the son of the late Robert and Marion (Beaulac) Williams, and brother of the late Robert “Bob” Williams.

Craig was predeceased by his best friend and loving wife of 21 years, Christine “Chrissy” Williams in December, 2021. May their love and true partnership always be remembered. 

He is survived by his daughter, Cali (Williams) Madden and her husband Sean of Belchertown, his granddaughter, Kyla Madden of WA as well as nieces, nephews, and friends. They all knew that Craig was their biggest fan, from high school sports games to new jobs and everything in between. 

He graduated from Marlboro High School Class of 1971 after which he spent many years working for Kohler in Marlboro.

Craig was an avid Boston sports fan who never missed an opportunity to share his thoughts on the Patriot’s latest star receiver or the Red Sox starting rotation. When he wasn’t working at Finnigan’s Pub in Hudson, he could be found on the golf course or vacationing with family in York, Maine. He always found a way to strike up a conversation and make others feel like they were a “regular” wherever they were. His generosity was limitless, and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. 

Calling hours will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2024 from 10-12pm in the Short & Rowe Funeral Home, 95 W. Main St., Marlborough. A Prayer Service will follow at 12 pm also at the Funeral Home.

Burial will be private at a later date.
