Craig Allen Robison

August 11, 1952December 17, 2020

Craig grew up in Martinsburg, OH and graduated from Utica High School in 1970. A few years after graduation he enrolled in the US Navy (USN), and it was during one of his assignments that he met the love of his life, Elisa. Together, they started family life in the Philippines with four children and continued back in the US, living in states such as Ohio and Washington, before settling in sunny San Diego, CA. He served in the USN for 20 years as an ATC technician and 2 years as an instructor before retiring and taking a position with the US Postal Service. Upon retiring from the postal service, he spent his time, along with his wife, enjoying his grandchildren and sharing his passions with them.

Craig enjoyed watching movies and was always up on the latest technology to optimize viewing and sound experience. From Betamax to VHS, LaserDisc to DVD (including Blu-ray HD), and eventually β€˜video streaming,’ he was always ahead of the home entertainment game. He also enjoyed reading science fiction novels, listening to music, playing video games with his grandchildren, and found great joy in hosting the holiday season year after year (and Christmas was his holiday!). From the music to decorations, to cooking and baking in which his specialties were baked ham, pumpkin pie, and Christmas cookies (just to name a few). His love for the holiday season was always evident and will surely be missed.

Craig is survived by his wife of 45+ years, Elisa, sons Christopher and Glenn, daughters Melanie and Leslie, his ten grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. He is also survived by his older sister, Cherry, and younger brother, Mark, including beloved nieces and nephews. His loss leaves a hole that can never be filled. He is so loved and will forever be missed.

We. lived across the street from Craig in Martinsburg for a couple yrs. We were prob 10 or 11yrs old. He n I were fighting in our back yard n my Grandma came running out of her house with a broom. She started hitting him with it n broke up our fight. We both laughed about it n he ran home. lol.
So sorry to see this.
Hugs n prayers to his family. πŸ’”πŸ™πŸ™
