I am so sorry to see the loss of Craig. I remember him when he was very young. Also when he had his gas station in Kenosha. Louise his cousin
Craig was a natural withanimals, especially the cars. He knew each one's personality and he and Donna were the best playmates the felines had! He was always very pleasant and helpful to me at the shelter.
Donna and family, my deepest sympathies to you.
We are so very sorry to hear of your loss. Our condolences to the family.
I used to see him a lot when I would go to his service station, I think it was a Phillips 66 right at 22nd and 75th st. He was always helpful and a good guy. we were both class of 73. brings back some good memories of simpler times. sorry for your loss, he was too young. Keith Dorey
Sorry to hear of Craig's passing. One of my best memories was working with Craig and Gene, first at Citgo 75th and 14th Ave, then Phillips 66 on 75th and 22cd then to the station on Sheridan road. We had a lotta laughs and learned a lot. My condolences to the Schnaare Family.
So very sad and sorry for your loss. Craig was always so nice and courteous when I talked with him at the shelter. He was so knowledgeable and good with the animals. Craig will be missed by so many people as well as animals.
My condolences to the entire family!
Donna and family you all have my deepest sympathy for your loss. I really enjoyed working with Craig at the shelter. I never had to worry about the cats with Craig and Donna there to care for them. He was a really good man that will be greatly missed!
I was a cat cuddler at the animal shelter while Craig worked there. Such a kind person, he will be missed by a lot of people.
