Condolence from Scott Hawkes on January 8th, 2015 11:39 am

Vicki and all who knew and loved Craig,

Words cannot express ones feelings regarding the loss of our friend Craig. So many great memories of Craig from working with him for many years at Lands and Forests/ DNR. He was an amazing woodsman who’s skills in the woods amazed me, he could tackle anything and make it work and work well. I can’t remember anytime that Craig got worked up or got mad, he was a very level guy. Many times he would tell me “the fire will be there when we get there” as I was tearing to get there. Many fun times at work and at his home over the years. Let’s all remember those times and share stories with one another as Craig would want us to.
My condolences to you Vicki and all of Craig’s family and friends, my heart breaks along with yours.

Condolence from Dale (Frail) Walford on January 8th, 2015 8:52 pm

To all the family… I was stunned when Dad called to tell me tonight that Craig had passed away. Every time I went “home” I used to think of Craig when I passed his house and many times thought that I wished I was brave enough to just go to the door and say “Hi” after all these years that have gone by. I had not seen Craig since we were teenagers… cousins… grew up two houses apart… rode the bus to school and back together every day. Although I had not seen him for so many years my main memory of him is his smile and his dry sense of humor. From what I read it seems that Craig turned out to be “one of the good guys” just like I always thought he would. What a loss! Vicky, I never met you but I know that you had a great treasure, as did your family. Calvin- I am so sorry for the huge losses you have had these past few weeks. My thoughts are with you all.

Condolence from Vernon Uhlman on January 8th, 2015 9:05 pm

Condolence from Mike LeBlanc on January 9th, 2015 1:54 pm

I’m shocked and saddened to hear of Craig’s passing. Whenever we were down at McGowan working I always looked forward to our conversations about trapping / fishing / hunting and having a good laugh or two. He was one of the most knowledgable persons around on many subjects, and did everything he could to help out when someone was in need.

Vicky and family–very sad to hear of your loss. My memories of Craig goes back to the late 1970’s watching him play on the North Queens School basketball team. He was a strong player, putting heart and soul into every game. Craig was certainly a force when he was on the floor! It is obvious that he continued to demonstrate that same spirit in everything he did in life and in the relationships he had with others. The slideshow certainly says it all-thank you for sharing.

Condolence from Marie and Bob Lohnes on January 9th, 2015 7:15 pm

Dear Vicki and all of the family,

We are so sorry for your loss. We will miss Craig dearly. When we talk about him all we picture is his smile and laugh. He was well loved and a joy to be around. The slideshow is a testament to this. Our hearts our with you all.

Condolence from Janice & Dwayne Rowter on January 9th, 2015 7:59 pm

to our dear friends, I write this with a very heavy heart as all have.one only had to be with Craig and Vickie a very short time to know they were soul mates. They lived life to the fullest each and every day. Such a wonderful couple! I am thankful for the many good times, our wedding, Troy and Bo’s wedding, the thanksgiving dinners, New Years parties, just sitting out on the deck and chatting and so many more.craig was ,to put it simply “one in a million” and somehow we knew this and it made you love him more. We offer our love and support to each of you. As you know, we love you all.

Vicki and family, Thinking of all at this sad time. Memories are the best ans after watching the video you sure have alot of great memories. What a great person Craig was. I too remember in the early seventies and the joy of watching Craig on the basketball court,putting his heart and sole into the game,as he did with everything in his life. I watch his nephew Arron carrying on the torch on the basketball court. May God bless.

Condolence from Carl Shannon on March 1st, 2018 10:03 pm

I only found out about this now, through the North Queens site on Facebook, and I was shocked and so sad. Many years ago, Craig stood up for me when I was being bullied at a dance. I was thankful for that. Long before that I thought he was super cool, and a very good person, and he was. He did live a good life, with good people, but way too young to go.
