Lots of amazing memories of Craig and the family from growing up! I used to love going for a visit on the boats in the summer :) lots of fun times with the Ross and Irwin families. And great memories he shared of my dad and vice versa! I know they’re reunited now and making up for some lost time. Sending all our love to the family. Love you lots xoxoxo

Dear Kristy and Jesse, I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your father Craig. He will be missed on Kushog Lake. He was a wonderful neighbour and friend. Always willing to help me out or return a wondering dog, or just have a chat. Switchback Road will be a quieter place without his large presence and equally large heart. I am so sorry for your loss.

We were so sorry to hear of Craig's death. While we have not seen him in recent years we have may happy memories of our families gatherings for family Sunday dinners at Aunt Margaret & Uncle Jack's, Aunt Agnes & Uncle Jim's and our parents Grant & Shirley Johnston's.
Please know you are in our thoughts.
