On Wednesday, August 7, 2019, Craig W. Maupin, passed away at his home at the age of 49.

He was born on October 21, 1969, in Charlottesville, VA, to Bill and Karen Maupin. He is also survived by a sister, Kristine Balasic, brother-in-law, Dan Balasic, niece, Grace Balasic, and nephew, Luke Balasic, and Grace’s fiancé Mac Mann from Burlington, NC. His loving great aunts, Mary Lou Kuntz, Latrobe, PA, and Mackie Maupin, Barboursville, VA.

Craig contracted a debilitating illness at the age of 17, but was able to complete an online bachelor’s degree with honors from Mary Baldwin University and an MBA from Marist College also with honors over a long period causing him much physical suffering. Craig was so kind, loved people, and was always wise beyond his years. Craig loved his family and especially enjoyed talking with them and always made everyone laugh with his jokes. He enjoyed looking at God's creation and would recognize the beauty of ordinary things that most people take for granted. He enjoyed playing the guitar, looking at wild animals in the yard, and fishing when he was able. Because of his keen intellect, he continued to study and was a master of many subjects. He knew his Lord and Savior intimately; therefore, he knew his eternal destiny would be in heaven to live forever without suffering and pain. He was a member of Berean Baptist Church.

Funeral services will be conducted at Teague Funeral Home, Charlottesville, VA, on Monday, August 12, 2019, at 2pm, with family greeting hour prior. Burial will immediately follow at Monticello Memory Gardens. A friend, Pastor Stephen VanValkenburg, will officiate at the funeral.

In lieu of flowers, Memorial Gifts for Craig can be given at www.ChristianAid.org, designated “In Memory of Craig Maupin”. By phone contributions can be made “In Memory of Craig Maupin” at (434) 977-5650.

I did not know Craig personally, but I am a Sister in Christ and fellow sufferer with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or chronic fatigue subdrome. What's a small world is that I was born in Norfolk in March 1969 and him in Charlottesville, in October the same year. Craig, if you're watching over while these are being read I know your mind knows all now but I can't help to want to search for the link with CFS and where we were born . This disease is awful and mine made worse when I broke my neck nine years ago and that Fentanyl patch almost killed me . Im still hanging on Craig and I know your family's hurting to figure out how life will go on without you, but rest assured that if by the grace of God someone finds the cure or our fight leads the powers that be to realize we are as in bad shape or worse than those with Multiple Sclerosis, WE WON'T FORGET YOUR FIGHT WITH US! Rest well and I'll Meet You In The Morning Just Inside The Eastern Gate!!

Craig was my dearest friend for the last 36 years. He was one of those very special people that God used to encourage everyone around him. He was gentle, witty and very wise. His loss is a great one not only for me but most especially for his family that he loved with all his heart. I’ll see you in heaven someday, my friend.
