Stephen Willard, 37 of Methuen passed away on Monday April 4, 2022 at Lahey Medical Center, Burlington. Stephen was born on April 24th 1984 at Anna Jacques Hospital in Newburyport MA. The majority of his life had been spent living in Methuen MA with the exception of the time he spent living with his wife and children in St. Johnsbury VT. He attended Methuen High School and received his diploma from Job Corps through Fort Devens MA. He went on to study culinary arts, becoming a very gifted chef. Later in life he made a career change becoming a truck driver for Donahue Brothers Inc. Stephen loved fishing, cooking, playing guitar, but most of all loved being a dad. His children were the most important thing in his life. He leaves behind his wife Liz, daughter Rylee, son Jameson, and the rest of his loving family and friends. He will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him; but we take comfort in the fact that even though he is no longer with us he will never be forgotten and will live on in our hearts.
Rest in Peace Stephen, we love you so much.
