He was a very kind, loving, pure-hearted and generous person who cared about others. He was recognized for his devoted services to others in the community. He was a volunteer driver for the county, VINE and Meals on Wheels and also organized the bridge group for 13 years. Craig sang in the church choir and had a strong faith and deep love of Jesus Christ.
