Craig Anthony Lee
November 22, 1970 – February 6, 2019
Craig Lee passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at the age of 48. Born on November 22, 1970 to the late George and Brenda Lee. Craig was a wonderful man who had a zest for life; he loved his family, music & dancing, festivals, and holidays. His favorite pastime was riding his three-wheeled bike around Marrero, waving and talking to everyone that he came across. Craig never met a stranger. He worked in the Harvey State Building for nine years, was a member of the UNCP organization (United Cerebral Palsy) for several years and fought a lifelong and courageous battle of cerebral palsy. Throughout his struggles, Craig always maintained a positive outlook through life, always had a smile on his face and had the prettiest blue eyes, which he would use to his advantage while being a social butterfly and flirting with all of the ladies. Craig may have been physically limited due to his condition, but he was incredibly intelligent and kind. Cherished brother of Howard Taylor (Jessica), Lisa Pitre and Shelly Pitre; Loving uncle of Brenda, Jordan, Heather, Kimberly, Chris, Alyssa, Kaiden and Lily; Great uncle of Mitchell, Zoey and Damon; Beloved nephew of Billy Lee, Beverly Grabert, his rock and best friend Susan “Tut” Carver and the late Charlene Schoenberger, Lindsey Grabert, Jr. and Wayne Grabert. Craig is the grandson of the late Lindsey P. Grabert, Sr. and Faye E. Grabert. Also survived by a host of nieces and nephews. Craig leaves many family members and friends behind who will cherish his memory and miss him dearly.

Craig, even though I never got a chance to meet you, I will never forget you. I will never forget who you were, what you meant to everyone who loved you and everyone you loved. You taught me many things and you didn’t even know it. You taught me to never give up even when things get tough. You taught me to smile even when it seems like there’s nothing to smile about. You taught me to laugh even when I felt like crying. You taught me to love unconditionally and give one hundred percent to this crazy thing called life. For every moment of happiness you gave to us, I pray that God will bless you. The special bond you shared with Susan showed in every picture. I loved seeing you smile and how your eyes would light up when you were together. I would often catch myself stalking her page, just to get a glimpse of the love you shared with each other. What a beautiful life you had. I would laugh, smile and pray each time. I was so sad to hear of your passing but I know you are in a better place now. No more pain, no more struggles, just watching over everyone you love. . Please watch over me too while you’re at it. We can all use a guardian angel like you! Thank you for sharing your life with us. I will be honored to meet you and give you the biggest hug one day . Until then, rock on brother, rock on!
