Joseph W. Kalagher, II, 67, of Ashburnham, died peacefully, Saturday, August 8, 2020, in UMass Memorial Health Alliance Hospital, Clinton, after an illness.

Born in Ashburnham on March 10, 1953, he was the son of the late Joseph W. and Elvi (Suomela) Kalagher. He was a graduate of Oakmont Regional High School with the Class of 1972, and the University of Massachusetts Lowell with a Bachelor of Science in Plastic Engineering in 1976.
