He moved with his family to Lakewood, WA in 1952 and attended Clover Park High School, to which he graduated in 1964. Craig then graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Urban Planning. For nearly ten years he lived in Vancouver, B.C., where he also attended the University of British Columbia. Craig was an avid reader, enjoyed music, film and theater, and was fortunate enough to be able to travel to many foreign lands. He was a gifted writer who left many manuscripts for future publication. Craig is survived by his son Jeffrey Baylow (wife Suzanne), and granddaughters Calissa and Ashtyn Baylow of Queensland, Australia, as well as his mother Jean A. Wilson, nephew Nicholas DuShane, and several aunts and cousins. Tony Harrah and Morton Alexander have been his loyal friends since their days together at the University of Washington, and will miss him greatly. He was predeceased by his father Burnley H. Wilson, and only sister Carole DuShane. As per Craig's request there will be no memorial service, but remembrances in his name may be given to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. "There were never moments in your life when you actually saw something end, for whether you knew it or not something else was always flowering. Never a disappearance, always a transformation."
