Craig was a graduate of Wilson High School, class of 1983. He enjoyed astronomy and airplanes, particularly military flight; he always dreamed of being a pilot. Craig liked everything birds, his passion was to fly. Craig always had a smile on his face and a song in his heart. He loved music of the 60s and 70s, especially the Beatles and Paul Revere and the Raiders. His presence brightened a room and a conversation with Craig would brighten your day. He loved life, loved being with his family, and his smile and laughter was contagious. He was the most amazing son, brother, and uncle, spoiling his entire family with attention and love. A sharp dresser, Craig enjoyed colorful sunglasses, fashions of his favorite era, and sporting a suit and tie like a rock star. A lifetime member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Adamstown, he loved belonging to this church and truly felt a part of this church community.
