Craig was disabled in an automobile accident as a young adult and it gave him great compassion for others. He was a gifted artist and saw the beauty in ordinary things and had been a long-time member of the Emerald Art Center in Eugene, Oregon. Craig had a vivid imagination and all his paintings and drawings had a story. He had a great love of nature, especially the Oregon Coast, one of his favorite places. Craig was a devoted follower of Jesus and a faithful prayer warrior. He spent his life helping people, always seeing the immediate need and jumping in to do what he could. He saw the best in others.
