A lifelong outdoorsman, in his younger years he enjoyed golfing, working with his son’s Boy Scout Troop, and tending to the property where he lived for the past 35 years. Later in life, hunting and fishing with his close friends and hand-crafting canes and walking sticks were his favored pastimes. Bill will be dearly missed and fondly remembered.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his son, Kevin R. Craig and his wife, Diana, of Arvada, CO; and his brother, Herbert Craig and his wife, Victoria, of Van Nuys, CA, as well as nieces, Margaret and Marie Pfab of Carnegie, PA, Desiree and Cynthia of Los Angeles and Burbank, CA, and nephew, Derek, of Van Nuys, CA.

In addition to his parents, Bill was preceded in death by his brother, Robert; and his sisters, Sarah, Dorothy, Florence and Anna Mae.
