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.
