Craig lived life with a passion that could be matched by few. As a husband, father, pa, son-in-law, brother, uncle, mentor, coach, safety instructor, competitor, friend or teammate, Craig was known as “the best”. Smokey was a life-long Melville Millionaire’s fan, Philadelphia Flyers fan, and Saskatchewan Roughriders fan. Craig impacted the lives of hundreds of kids as a hockey coach and mentor.
A private family service will be held to celebrate Craig’s life.
