Darryl H. Budge, 63, of Grafton


Darryl H. BudgeGrafton – Darryl H. Budge, 63, passed away at home May 10, 2024 with his adoring family by his side.

He leaves his loving wife of 42 years, Charlotte (Ballou) Budge, his sons Darryl Budge Jr. and his wife Jessica and Matthew Budge and his wife Andrea, his mother Marlene (Temple) Budge, his grandchildren Wyatt, Walker, Dallas, Lucas and Joy, his sister Donna Charest and her husband Steve and brother David Budge and his wife Debra along with several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father William Budge.

Darryl was born in Worcester but was a life-long resident of Grafton. If you stopped by his garage you were likely to find him building or repairing his race car, particularly his Barracuda that he built himself. MOPAR was the brand he always was loyal to, and his hard working hands went beyond cars as he could create with woodworking as well. He prized time with his sons and grandchildren who will miss their beloved “Puppa” above all else. He and his wife Charlotte also looked forward to camping trips across New England with many friends from town.

Darryl worked for UPS for more than 30 years, but those who knew him could always count on his varied skills as a Carpenter, Mechanic, Contractor, Truck Driver, Jewelry Repairman and even a Junk Yard Technician. With his hands and work ethic he was always up to whatever the task at hand was.

All are welcome to gather with Darryl’s family and friends Tuesday May 14th from 4pm to 7pm at Roney Funeral Home 152 Worcester St. N. Grafton, MA 01536. His funeral service will be held Wednesday May 15th at 11am in the funeral home. Interment will follow at Pine Grove Cemetery in North Grafton.
