Grafton – It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the sudden passing of Kurt Partlow, 45, of Grafton, on March 24, 2021. Kurt was born in Manchester, Conn. and was the first-born son of James and Barbara Partlow.
Kurt is survived by his loving wife of 18 years, Kerry as well as his two daughters, his pride and joy, Ava and Anabelle. He is also survived by his two younger brothers and their families whom he loved dearly, Geoff Partlow and his wife Danielle and son Mason Partlow of Upton and Erik Partlow, his fiancée Lindsey, and son Calvin Partlo.w. of Lincoln, N.H. He is survived by his parents, father James Partlow of Leland, NC and his wife Esther Sadowsky, and mother Barbara Partlow of Sutton, as well as his in-laws, Charles and Alice Nason of Grafton and their sons, Keith, Daniel and Robert. Kurt leaves behind an innumerable number of friends who will miss him dearly.
Kurt was a wonderful provider for his family and took great pride in the HVAC business he built, Custom Sheetmetal Construction, Inc. He was one of those people who could fix anything and had an infinite amount of knowledge on how things work. Friends and family would always call for Kurt’s opinion and expertise when something needed repair.
Kurt’s happiest days were spent snowboarding with his family, golfing, vacationing in Aruba, and watching the Pats play at Gillette Stadium.
He had a part-time job working overnight at Wachusett Mountain running the snowcat and he enjoyed his time spent there immensely.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend calling hours on Tuesday, March 30, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at Roney Funeral Home, 152 Worcester St., North Grafton. Kurt’s services and burial will be private. Masks are required and social distancing guidelines followed.
