I have known Craig since 1985 Angie. Your loss of Craig is heartfelt. He was a loving husband, proud father and what I could see from FB a very proud grandfather. He never changed, always smiling. Having been where you are now, he encouraged me. I want you to know it is a battle that you must face and a breaking heart that never quite heals. Although you have never met me personally, I feel that I need to encourage you as he encouraged me and if need be, I will cry with you. Prayers and hugs

Dear Drees Family,
My first day back at work, I walk in and I can barely catch my breath; my heart shanked and the tears just started to fill my soul. I am so sad; Craig was not just my co-worker but my friend and my "go-2-buddy" whenever I had a car issue; I'm gonna miss him sooooo much. I'm praying for y'all and ask that the Good Lord comfort each of you, give you strength, wisdom and guidance. I'm so sorry that I missed his service; we did a really nice memorial tribute for him at the plant.
Take care and God Bless y'all <3

Just heard today about Craig. I have known Craig since 1985. I worked in the same area as Craig for years. And I worked next to him for a while. Angie, it was refreshing to work with someone who talked about his wife and children. And not ONE negative word about Angie or the kids. We were kind of a Mutt and Jeff with him being 6'6" and slim and me 5'8" and anything but slim. But we always got along. We bowled on the same team and had a lot of good lunches together before work. Craig will be missed but never forgotten or replaced. May God comfort and bless Angie and the family with the memory of a good man with a life well lived.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I worked next to Craig for about 1 1/2 months up until Christmas break. He was definitely fun to work around and he always provided much conversation.In just working with him for a while, I noticed that he was a giving person. He will be greatly missed at GM as he was also quite a fine worker.

Guest Book Photos

This was my last day of working with Craig, I retired. We're hot, tired and had enough of work so we decided to do a "selfie-photo" to have some fun.
