Chris was intent on serving his country as an Army Ranger since age 11, when he was introduced by his mother during her deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Directly from high school, Chris entered Army basic training and airborne school, passed the intense Ranger Assessment and Selection Program (RASP). He deployed to Afghanistan less than two months after arriving at the 2/75 Ranger Battalion, Ft. Lewis, WA. Chris earned the esteemed Ranger School Tab as a PFC. Chris rapidly rose to rank of Corporal in a leadership position with a model record. He spent four years in the military and completed four high tempo Afghanistan Special Operations deployments. He was a machine gun team and antitank team leader. Among his many military awards and decorations includes the prestigious Ranger Tab, three Army Commendation Medals, the Army Achievement Medal and Good Conduct Medal. Chris enjoyed music as an avid guitar player. He was a fanatical supporter of the Cardinals and Rams. Chris was an expert sharpshooter and had an aptitude for target/trap shooting. He had fun hitting the slopes with his mother on his snowboard and jumping waves on his SeaDoo. Chris loved cars and spent endless hours taking apart, enhancing and rebuilding anything that moved. Chris will be remembered for many things but, above all, for his compassion. He had an uncanny ability to connect and see into the souls of others. He often befriended those who needed a comrade and was there for others during hard and difficult times, especially his fellow soldiers. Chris' playful spirit was a joy to others, especially children. His cousins and friends' children were drawn to him. His magnetism was universal; on a medical mission trip to Peru the children flocked to him and chanted his name. In addition, Chris was passionate about animals. As a youth, Chris defended and rescued tadpoles from a threatened pond and distributed to neighbors for upkeep. Chris maintained a pet cemetery in the family's back yard for his numerous reptiles. Chris took pleasure from his dogs and working with pets in his father's veterinary clinic. His charming smile, sparkling green eyes and love of family will be missed. His commitment to protecting and improving the lives of others, with an emphasis on soldiers, will continue on through the Chris Carter Fund for Life. In lieu of flowers, family and friends may contribute to the fund via check or online bill pay to Raymond James FBO The Chris Carter Fund for Life, 9900 Clayton Road, St. Louis, MO 63124. Please note that gifts to this revocable trust are not tax deductible but will support a legacy of helping others.

Craig, Francis W.  
Craig, Francis W. (Colonel, U.S. Army, retired) 87, died on Friday, February 20, 2015 after a long struggle with the effects of Parkinson's disease. Francis is the beloved husband of Jeanne Colgan Bamby Craig; loving father of Francis (Kathleen), Joseph, James (Susan) and Jeanne Marie Craig; dear grandfather of Molly, Catherine, Colgan, John, Rohan and Caleb; dear brother of Barbara Boyle, Sister Constance Craig SHCJ, Michael Craig and the late Louis, Sister Malin RSHM, William and Faith. Francis strongly believed in service and faith. He was born in Arlington, MA into a military family. Like his grandfather, father and a brother before him, Francis attended the United States Military Academy (West Point, NY), graduating in 1951. In 1967 he earned an MBA from the Wharton School of Business. He served the country as an army officer for thirty years, including infantry combat tours in Korea and Vietnam. Later in his career, he served as a personnel officer and focused on raising his four children in faith. He retired from the Army in St. Louis having reached the rank of Colonel. Even after a full career of service to the country, Francis continued to serve the community as a highschool teacher. For an additional decade, he taught mathematics and physics to students at St. Louis' Central High School for the Visual and Performing Arts. Francis retired for the second time in 1995 and spent his time volunteering, traveling with his wife of 49 years, visiting his children, and participating in Volksmarches (German-styled walking events) all around the country. Francis' outlook on faith, family and service was shaped by his Catholic upbringing. He was a 37 year member of the St. Joseph Catholic Parish in Manchester where he was particularly active in serving the youth. He was a long-time Parish School of Religion (PSR) teacher and he mentored Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts in their pursuit of religious emblems.
