Craig Dale Chabino

21 August, 194423 September, 2020

Craig Dale Chabino, 76, passed away September 23, 2020 of COVID-19. He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, and his oldest son, Carter Dale Chabino. He leaves Melissa, his wife of 53 years, daughter-in-law Tricia Chabino of Raytown, son Aaron Chabino and wife Heather of Parkville, daughter Sara Lott and husband Robert of Kansas City, MO, five grandsons, one granddaughter, and a large extended family.

Craig grew up in Ruskin Heights, was an Eagle Scout, a graduate of the University of Central Missouri, and an Army Veteran, serving in Vietnam. He worked 30 years in computer operations for Kansas City Southern Railroad and retired at the age of 55. Craig loved reading, averaging three books a week after retirement. He was an excellent cook and baker and mourned the death of Julia Child as if she were a member of the family. His brother-in-law Curtis always said, “If Craig made it, it’s got to be good.”

Craig was very funny, although not as funny as he thought he was. His friends and family will miss his quick laugh and unconventional sense of humor.

I could never know if Craig was teasing me or not. But loved him either way.

Here is a quote from a very smart child that has brought me comfort.

‘Love is what makes you smile when you're tired or sad.' Terri - age 4

May Love of Father, Husband, and Grandpa bring you peace and comfort. ♥️

I always found Craig's unorthodox humor so funny. I enjoyed arguing over the Roysls and the Chiefs... who was the better pitcher or whether they should have gone for it on the 4th down. I will miss him.

I used to love going sailing with uncle Craig even though we were sure he was trying to throw us off the boat with his maneuvers. He brought a little sophistication to our family with his philosophical outlook towards life. There is really nothing that can be said or done to heal the hurt but to remember the fond memories we have
of one another. Our family is one of deep love for each other and
will always be there to support anyone in need of comfort. My second favorite uncle will be greatly missed along with our family members who have gone before us. God bless and love you all.

Kansas City Southern had ordered their passenger train made up and it stood on the mainline with C. D. Chabino aboard.

The Southern Belle was highball cleared to heaven.

Godspeed, Craig... I’ll miss you.
Your friend, JMSC
