Christopher Menard Obituary

It is with a heavy heart and profound sadness that we announce the passing of Christopher Menard, 65, a dedicated patriot, loving fiancé, and cherished father. Christopher departed this world on November 16, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of honor, courage, and unwavering commitment to family and country. Born on September 10, 1958, Christopher grew up in Hartford, CT, where he developed a strong sense of duty and service from an early age. His call to serve led him to enlist in the United States Navy at 18, and he went on to proudly defend the freedoms and values that make our nation great. Off the battlefield, Christopher was a loving and supportive father. His family was the anchor that grounded him, providing the strength and support he needed to navigate the complexities of military life.

Christopher is survived by his beloved fiancé Elizabeth Padersky, and his children; Devin Menard and Heather Winters, her husband Robert Winters, grandchildren-Tatum, Amelia, Caleb, Blake and Brody, Elizabeth’s son Dillion, Aunts and Cousins.

Christopher was predeceased by his sister, Roberta Wennerberg.

In life, Christopher was known for his generosity, selflessness, and willingness to lend a helping hand. As we mourn the loss of this remarkable individual, let us also celebrate his extraordinary life. His legacy will endure in the stories shared by those who knew him, the memories that bring both tears and smiles, and the values he imparted to future generations.
