Mr. Christopher J. Harrington, of Leominster, died unexpectedly but peacefully on Tuesday, October 17, 2023 in his home. He was 58.
Chris was born in Boston on December 16, 1964, the beloved son of Robert and Lorraine (Finney) Harrington of Waltham. He grew up in Waltham and attended grade school at the now named Our Lady's Academy. Chris later graduated from Waltham High School and went on to earn a Bachelor's degree from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. After completing his education, he pursued a successful career in sales. Chris cherished the opportunities sales provided him and valued the connections he formed along the way. For over thirty years, he worked at State Industrial Products serving most recently as an Outside Sales Manager.
Those who knew Chris will always remember his infectious laughter and sense of humor. He was an avid fan of the New England Patriots and held season tickets for many years, ensuring that he never missed a game. Birdwatching was one of his favorite pastimes, and he delighted in spending beautiful weekends immersed in nature while acting as a personal guide to friends and family, teaching them about different bird species and their unique calls. However, above all else, Chris took immense pride in his daughter Kayla, who brought him endless happiness.
In addition to his parents Robert and Lorraine, Chris is survived by his daughter, Kayla Harrington (Tucker Allard) of Nahant; his sisters, Tara Romano (Michael) of Dracut and Kimberly Daugirda (Thomas) of Billerica; his companion Pamela Maynard of Thompson, Connecticut and his nieces and nephews, Cade McGill, Shelby McGill, Cameron Romano, and Brady Romano.
