Craig was a very nice gentlemen, I worked with him at Lincoln Hills and he was always kind, friendly, and funny! My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time! It is so heart breaking to see someone go through something so hard in their life! We all take life for granted and some see it and others don’t see that they are doing it! When we realize it is to late we tend to be hurt even worse than we really should be! Cherish each and every day you have , rejoice , most of all love one another every day! Craig will be very loved and missed!

Craig was not just a friend but he was family to me, as is Darian, Anne, Gabby and the rest of the family. Craig and I were high school class mates but he was a very good friend to me in some troubled times and he always had a listening ear even at 2 am. I will pray for all of the family , especially Donna and sweet little Harper. I was blessed to know him.

I met Craig in 7th grade at Scribner Junior High. He was one of my closest friends through high school and we shared so many fun times. He was my rock during those tough jr high and high school years. The special friendship we had was like no other. Craig was a true hero to me in many circumstances and I knew I could count on him completely for anything. His heart was so full of love and compassion and he brightened everyone’s life with his humor and his ability to love. Craig, even though I haven’t seen you in many years, our past friendship and our current FB friendship were both very important to me. You will be missed more than you know. Love you, my friend!

I don’t know what to say I’m speechless. The guy was like a little brother to me he lived with me when I was in Atlanta Georgia. I loved the guy. When I had my leg amputated he was working at Ridgeview in Clarksville and He always came in and made me laugh. I will never forget him. He was one of those special people who come into your life once-in-a-lifetime.
