Craig & I grew up in the same neighborhood in Terra Linda. We were fast friends from the age of 8. Later we would see one another at Special Olympics events, as my sister in law Mary Beth was an athlete as well. In later yrs. at Cedars were I worked. I stayed in touch via his sister Peggy. Craig holds a special place in my heart, he was a wonderful person. I was lucky to call him friend for so many yrs. Craig will be sorely missed by all who know & love him... Forever & Always Sandi

Craig was our neighbor and friend when my brothers and sister were growing up in Terra Linda. He was a blessing and taught us a lot more than we ever taught him. I remember him joining in our ball games and just hanging out talking. My best wishes to all his family, love Maggie Morgan

Dear Peggy and Bob, I am so sad to hear about Craig's passing. He was a wonderful guy who always brought sunlight into the room. He was funny and charming. Peggy -- you were an incredible big sister to your sweet, lovely and happy little brother.
