Craig was my best friend at West and at SIU. Together we learned how not to date, and later on got it right. We were inseparable. Craig hung out at our house on Lowell so much he called my mother Mom.

He told a lot of eople he was a American Indian which was not true at all. What a joker.

We did a lot at the Swedish Covenant Church youth group over by Hadley Junior High on weekends with friend Robert "Bob or Swannie" Swanson.

Lot's of us were in a band of one kind or another and Craig and I had "Norman's Abnormals" with Crag on guitar and me on drums and guitar. Craig was good on the instrument, but we were terrible as a band and never got a gig, but had fun practicing in his basement. I think of him regularly and still connect on Facebook with his kids. His two boys were important to him and he even ran a commercial paintball course on his property with them.

Go with God my friend.
