1983 – 2017
North Grosvenordale – Craig M. Billings, 34, of Fabyan Road, died unexpectedly in a motor vehicle accident on Monday, June 5, 2017, in Thompson. Born in Putnam, CT, he was the son of Cathy Billings of North Grosvenordale and the late Ronald George Billings.
Mr. Billings worked as a cook at many local restaurants. Craig was known for his sense of humor. He took great pride in pulling pranks on family and friends any opportunity he could get. He was kind hearted in nature, an active volunteer at Daily Bread. He enjoyed spending time with his dog, Axel, and was an avid Yankees fan.
In addition to his mother, Craig is survived by his sister, Tammy Billings of Putnam; his half-sister Missy Choquette of Danielson; his half-brother, Jason Billings of Danielson; his foster brothers, Justin LaRochelle, Darcy LaRochelle, and David LaRochelle, all of North Grosvenordale; and several aunts and uncles. He was predeceased by his late brother, Ronald Billings.
In keeping with Craig’s loving and generous spirit, it was his decision to donate life so that others may live; Craig was an organ and tissue donor.
