Howard V. Gallagher III

October 16, 1958 — May 5, 2024

Ashburnham, MA

With profound sorrow, we announce the sudden passing of Howard Vincent Gallagher, affectionately known as "Howie," who was called to his eternal rest on May 5, 2024. Born on October 16, 1958, in Fitchburg, MA, Howard was a beacon of strength, resilience, and humor for his loved ones. 

Howard's devotion to his family was the cornerstone of his life. His beloved wife, Coraley Gallagher, and their sons, Nicholas, Sean, and Jason Gallagher, were his pride and joy. He was the glue that held the family together, a steady force during turbulent times, and a comforting presence in moments of joy. 

Howard is survived by his wife Coraley and sons Sean (WA), Jason (CT), Nicholas (MA) and grandchildren Kenzie, Jacklyn, Kennedi, Wilx, Logan and Ashton and siblings Shelly Ciccolini  and Weslely and many nephews and nieces who will forever cherish his memory. 

He now joins his parents, Howard, Margaret, and his brother Brian in eternal peace.

Family and friends will gather to honor and remember Howie for a period of visitation on Thursday, May 9, 2024, at Brandon Funeral Home, from 5:00pm until 7:00pm.

Arrangements are under the care of Brandon Funeral Home. 
Kevin J. Mack, Walter C. Taylor, Melissa A. McQuaid, Funeral Directors.
