Our Family remembers Craig and his contagious smile at so many sporting events for our kids ! Andrew and Alex grew up with Jayden and Brent and their family all the way back to little league and then Football and Lacrosse for so many years ! He was a funny guy at sports events and was never vocal.  Hahah haha he loved watching all the kids play sports ⚾️

Wishing Craig's family comfort in the happy memories you share. May you always feel the love he had for all of you.
