Condolences for the family of “Harold Craig”

Hal was a great individual and I only got to meet him once when he lived in North Phoenix. I’m sorry I didn’t get to see him only once and get to talk about a Craig connection. Our fathers were brother and he gave me a lot of important information about our Craig line. I just wish we could have talked more. I will most certainly miss him.

Hal was my uncle that I was privileged to spend time with at various periods in my life. I remember him from Bisbee when I was attending elementary school there and later in the early 50s when my parents moved to Tucson. Through him and his wife I received an invitation to a New Year’s Eve party where I met my wife-to-be 60 years ago. I later lost track of him until, upon moving back to Tucson in 1999. I found him on the internet in 2003. Thankfully I was able to visit him numerous times over the ensuing 8 years including my last visit, along with my brother Dan in late January. Hal was intelligent, honest, sincere, generous and a wonderful friend and relative. May he rest in peace.
