Craig K. Benter

Obituary Condolences

Craig passed away on Friday, September 23, 2011 peacefully at home with family by his side. Preceded in death by his father, Byrle; his first born son, Donovan; and his brother, Brad Benter. He is survived by his mother, Doris Ely; sister, Glenette Crawford; brother-in-law, Rod Crawford; his two sons, Brian (Lizbeth) and Benjamin (Heather); 8 grandchildren; 1 niece, Natalie (Kelly) Cowan; 1 nephew, Travis Crawford; 1 great niece; and 2 great nephews. Craig was a very loving and caring person who will be missed dearly by his family and friends. We felt so fortunate to have him with us as long as we did. Not a day would go by without him saying, "It's a beautiful day." His favorite saying was, "Take it easy, take it light and take it with a smile." Craig had a special charisma about him; his heart was always open for all to enter. He was in Vietnam for 3 months before he was wounded in the line of duty. He will live on in all our hearts forever. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Haven Hospice, 2895 Temple Ave., Signal Hill, CA 90755.
