Craig grew up in Dorr, Michigan. He was a very loving person and is loved by many. He had a way of making anyone smile just from his presence. He had his dad’s sense of humor and an enormous heart. He enjoyed camping at Sandy Pines, disc golf, golfing, basketball, spending time with all his family, and Mexican food! He will be deeply missed and never forgotten.
“God looked around his garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful, he only takes the best. He knew that you were in pain. He knew that you would never be well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb. So, he closed your weary eyelids and whispered, ‘Peace be thine.’ It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you the day God called you home.” (Author unknown)
Burial service will be 2 pm Friday, June 19, 2020 at Resurrection Cemetery, 4100 Clyde Park Ave. SW, Wyoming, MI 49509.
