He had just transitioned back home to Cavalier the week of his passing.

Craig married Brenda Gussman on August 1st, 1992 in Cavalier, with a reception at Frost Fire Ski Lodge, a place they both treasured. They made their home in Walhalla and lived there together for 5 years, a time in which their daughter Bethany was born. They then moved to Cavalier a few years later, where they lived for 25 years. He was an active member in faith communities, including the Baptist Church of Cavalier and Gideons International. His favorite place and activity was being in the Brumbaugh Christmas Tree Farm, where he poured his heart and soul season after season.
