  1. My childhood friend. You were so much fun to grow up with. You will be truly missed. Goodbye for now.

  2. Dear Candice, Taegue, Ryker and Easton, I remember Craig as a young man of perhaps 10 years old. That’s when I met him and his mom and the family. Reading this obituary makes me feel so sad for all of your family — what a terrible loss! You are all in my thoughts and prayers
