Janet and family, you all are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time. Craig will truly be missed by all who were blessed to know him and call him friend. Ricky and I will remember his patience and wisdom in assisting Fred with the golf team from Lancaster High. He was tough with the boys when they needed it and shared in their joy and frustration in their wins and losses. His faith, his strength and his love for his family and his church family will always be remembered. Keep your sweet memories close to your heart and he'll be with you always.

Wow! We have lost a sweet person and Heaven has gained a blessing. I have know Craig for over 20 years. I helped vote him in at Morattico years ago. He has always been one of the sweetest people. After I moved from there in 2001, I was still able to run into him as we both worked for the community services board. Despite his health issues, he always managed to care for others. He was always able to offer an encouraging word and if he said he would pray for you, you could count on it. He has always been close to the Lewis family. He performed funerals for my mother in law, father in law and assisted with my husband's. To his amazing family, I pray the Lord brings you comfort and peace during this difficult time. I pray you always have fond memories and remember that he loved you dearly. He talked about you all the time.

God Bless- Craig, Michelle and Madison Giese

From junior high school through high school Craig became one of my closest friends and actually pastured me in June of 1970 when word was received that my next door neighbor had been killed in the Vietnam War conflict.
Craig's wonderful family always warmly welcomed me each time I visited, usually with his dad, Buck, offering me a ice cold RC soda pop.
Unfortunately, we drifted away from each other during our late college years yet we occasionally did exchange greetings.
Craig was our star All-State quarterback for our football team along with being a sharpshooting guard in basketball (scoring 36 points in his final varsity game) along with the best pitcher in baseball. During his junior year he also ran track, specializing in the hurdle events.
I shall forever have the best possible memories of him which I truly am very grateful for.

Pastored. Spellcheck is a despicable curse!
