We were so sorry to hear of this great loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to each member of the family. Hope there's alot of adventure in Heaven for this fun loving member of our family. He was my first cousin and his mother Genevieve Dreese was my aunt.
Craig made us all laugh at his antics growing up. Just want to express our sympathy especially to his wife, children, grandchildren, Colleen and Kevin. God Bless you and give you strength during this time.

One of my fondest memories of Craig was a day we were all sitting around a picnic table ,between our houses, eating watermelon. It was right after he broke his arm from jumping off the roof or out a window because he thought he could fly like Superman. He had a cast on his arm and we were seeing how far we could spit the watermelon seeds. I remember that was a good day and we had such fun. Craig was always so full of life and passion.

My deepest sympathy goes out to Eva, Colleen, Scott and Craig's children and grandchildren. I know he will be missed by all. May he rest in peace.
