Craig was a free-spirited father, son, brother, and friend who had a giving heart the size of his beloved state of Colorado and its beautiful mountains.

Craig spent several years working as a truck driver in Colorado and in Arizona.
As a member of St. John Lutheran Church, he was always willing to assist in many ways within the community. His daughters Hallie Mae and Linnea Jewel were baptized at St. John’s.
