Craig was born to James C Black and Dorothy Mae Bayer Black on August 10, 1962, in Waco, TX.
Craig was a proud resident of West, TX. He graduated from Jefferson-Moore High School in 1980 and later attended TSTI. Craig was a loved and dedicated employee of A-Line Auto Parts for 26 years.
Mischievous as he was growing up, Craig lit up every room he entered with his humor and contagious laugh. As the eldest sibling, he fulfilled his role by always putting family first and never missed the opportunity to celebrate. Craig's most precious moments were filled with endless adventures with his wife; be it on land or at sea, bonding over Baylor Bears with his father and son, and making memories with his grandchildren.
His family and friends will be left with memories to cherish, stories to tell, and a legacy unlike any other. Craig lived life to the fullest.
Sic 'em Bears!!
