He was a beloved colleague who is well-respected. He was Conscientious in his work, and will be surely missed. He showed compassion toward his patients and sensitivity. Despite hardships in his personal life, he remained professional and caring. We feel a great loss in his absence and wish his family peace.

There are no words that can truly capture how sad we are to lose Dr. Schiff. He was always considerate and willing to help in any way that he could. He will be greatly missed.

My name is Andrew Schiff and I'm Craig Schiff's younger brother. Although Craig and I hadn't seen each other in a while I'm in shock that he has passed. We were very close growing up and endured a challenging upbringing together. We shared a love of music particularly the Beatles and he was a second parent to me when my father couldn't be there for me. He inspired my love of music and taught me a lot of medical terminology and was excellent at explaining things. My brother was an excellent father and loving husband. I am sad beyond words that my brother is gone. He was my best friend growing up.

I’m sitting here preparing to go into class and I can’t help but swallow hard. I’ve finally had a minute to slow down and let it all sink in since I got the call, I just can’t wrap my head around the fact that your no longer here. I learned so very much from you Doc. From dealing with all the riff raff and geriatric patients right down to you dragging me into every pediatric patient for a solid hold. I’d never met a provider and mentor quite like you. Your approach and vision to things was often enlightening. Leaving the ED wasn’t an easy decision for me, yet you reminded me and encouraged me to grow. I met so many great people and worked with a great team of physicians and while each of you had memorable qualities Doc yours will always ring in my brain. Even after I parted, you were always there to bounce a pt encounter off of or there to give me and enlightening new perspective. I can not thank you enough for all you taught me, for all the times I needed an ear and you didn’t have to listen but chose to. For all your ridiculous additions to our night teams 3 am dance party conversations. I am happy to have met you, to have known you and you will be forever missed. You have been an unforgettable stamp in my life and my heart is heavy knowing your gone. I hope you’ve found peace, please know you were always appreciated, valued, respected and loved by those who were graced with your presence. Rest Easy Doc, Save me a ginger ale, I’ll have plenty to bounce off you the next time we meet. Thank you for making me a part of your legacy, I’ll treasure it for years to come.

Dr. Schiff, not only were you an amazing colleague and helped so many in the short time I got to work with you, you helped save my life. When you helped save me and I gave you that thank you card, you thanked me for my kind words but what you did could never be thanked enough. You helped so many and the insurmountable knowledge you possessed will never be forgotten. Thank you for showing me such compassion and helping me to still be here today. I promise to go on and give the same care you would to others in need. You were an amazing soul and I pray the most everlasting peace for you my friend.

So very sorry to hear of Craig's death. Such a gracious and thoughtful man. I enjoyed learning from him in the ER and sharing many a good laugh. Always had my back, and always saw the best in people. One of the most intelligent people I have ever met...he will be missed by many. I pray that he is at peace, as well as peace and comfort for his family.

Craig was a great brother-in-law! I remember our chats about health care and he never failed to amaze me with his knowledge and intelligence on everything we talked about. Our family get togethers would often end up in a game of music Trivia. Craig knew his music! Even the disco songs I never even thought he knew! Those were good times. I will keep missing you! Rest in peace my brother.

I lived across the street from Craig in Presque Isle. We used to work on his Porsche together. He shared his passion for his car with me and let me take his prized car to prom twice. Thank you for the memories.
I am very sorry to hear of his passing.
