Craig was a wonderful father, a friend to many and a stranger to no one. His charisma was inspiring, his smile warm, and his laugh never left your ears. He had a way of overlooking things that really bothered most. To him, anything that got in the way of our happiness is just trivial.
As a father, he always taught us the importance of treating everyone as if they were your friend. He encouraged us all to live the way we wanted to, no matter what, as long as it felt right. We are thankful for all of the beauty he created here, the many laughs shared and the countless pieces of wisdom that he gave to many. He had a way of captivating you when he spoke, leaving you inspired by all of life’s beauties.
We are all deeply saddened by his passing and he shall live on in our hearts everyday. Although he his no longer with us physically, we will always see him in ourselves and his memory will never fade. Rest in peace, you are truly an irreplaceable man.
