Craig devoted his life to family. It was the most important thing to him. He was a great provider and loving father.

Craig was very proud of his service in the Army National Guard. He was a true patriot.

Craig loved smoking meat! He was happiest when he was surrounded by friends and family while being the Chef!

Craig was an incredible friend. He loved talking! He could talk about cars and food all day.

He also loved playing pool, riding his Harley and scratching lottery tickets. Craig did not want a service. He wanted people to gather and enjoy doing things he liked to do.

The family will be holding a day of celebration at a date to be determined later.

Craig had a celebration planned for the 9th of December at Pomajohns Bar on N. Jackson in Perryville.

He was hoping for a night of pool and hanging with friends and maybe a beer or 2. This will take place.

    Craig was one of my favorite drivers at Jack Cooper when I was working in the payroll office! He loved to stop in and share pictures of his dog Lollipop and bring me samples of his delicious smoked meat! I’m sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family ❤️
