Craig graduated from McNary High School in 1992 and worked at Walery's Premium Pizza for 22 years. In November 2011, he became a stay at home father and took on the roll of teacher by homeschooling their daughter Rian.
Craig was a devoted and loving husband and father. No matter what his children or wife did in life he was and will always be their biggest fan! He never missed a moment in our lives and was present every step of the way. He was always there to help guide us through any decision in life and to lend an ear without judgement.

Craig cherished the talks he shared with Brady. Loved taking Rian to the pool and was always front and center never missing a single practice or cheer competition. Craig was not only my best-friend, but the love of my life. He will forever be in our hearts and we will miss him every second of every minute, until we see him again. 
A private celebration of Craig's life will be held.

I was Craig's 6th Grade teacher at Gubser  Elementary School, in Keizer, Oregon. Craig was the kind of student who arrived everyday with a big smile on his face, and  he would always make sure to come up to me and ask me, '' How's your morning going Miss Maulding ?  '' He was working hard to make his 6th grade important. His Mom , Marsha and I worked very hard to help him work,  and eventually make these goals happen in is  life!!!  I was so proud of his progress and stamina. He had the best smile, and he was always cheering up someone with a funny joke. I even gave the nickname  "DUTCH''  because I told him he looked just like the little Dutch boy on cans of Dutch Brother's Paint. He loved the nickname !!!! 

My thoughts and prayers go out to all members of Craig's family. He will always be one of my favorite students during my  '31 ' years of teaching at Gubser!! May GOD'S blessings watch over Craig always!

May you have found the peace you seek. God bless your soul bud!
