The Pizzey family are saddened by the passing of our friend John. We first met in Oct of 1976 when we moved to Arlington from Canada. John became a great friend we had many great times together in the late 70's and 1980's. We can only think of good times with John. He will be missed

Many fond memories from childhood involve John and Lana. In fact, I revived an annual Christmas tree judging contest with my neighbors! However, we never reached the level of having a neighbor hay ride to look at lights, or a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. That was a John Craig touch! My condolences to the Craig family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I am truly saddened. John was a great man who I always respected. He and I were talking one time when the homebuilding industry was upside down and he told me something that I have passed on to others and still sticks with me to this day. John said "Frank, I can go broke in this business a whole lot slower doing no work as opposed to taking on bad work". Those of you in the business will understand. Rest easy John.

We send our sincere condolences to you Lana and all in your family. John was truly a remarkable man to know and he will be missed so very much. We will never forget the wonderful, funny and sincere toast John gave at our daughter Sheryl and Rob's wedding reception here in Houston. It was the absolute best and so many people commented on it. Our grandchildren Garrett, Grace and Grant always talk about good times had while visiting Papa John and Grammy Lu. We ask God to help all in your family through this difficult time.
Love,
Sandy and Wayne Theis

John will be missed by so many. He was a wonderful brother-in-law. I was so glad when he came into Lana's life and we became his family too. He was always there to help in any situation. He and Lana were an amazing couple and built an amazing legacy in their home building business. John was never short of words when it came to praising Lana for her many talents. He truly adored her. John and Lana were the most wonderful hosts and earned a Five Star rating when it came to making you feel welcome into their homes. My heart aches for the family. Only time will help heal, but John will always be remembered for his huge heart. I love you all.
