SELVAGE, Craig Carlin 53, passed on to heaven on Friday, June 4, 2010 in Barrington, Rhode Island after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Greenwich, Connecticut on Sept. 18, 1956, Mr. Selvage graduated from Woodberry Forest School, Virginia in 1974 and MIT in 1979 with an MS in Mechanical Engineering. A creative and exemplar toy designer and entrepreneur, he worked for both Parker Brothers and Hasbro as principle engineer, holds multiple patents, and in 2003 he founded Toy Guy Design which manufactured archetypical Audi automotive parts. A sweet, loving, gentle man, and a devoted father, he possessed facile energy for discovery, enjoyed his trips to China, a game of golf, a spin in his S4 and the pursuit of great barbeque.

Reilly of Westwood, MA, brother James P. Selvage III of New Britain, CT, brother-in-law Charles D.
