Randy Craig

September 30, 1949 ~ July 25, 2022 (age 72)


Randy’s life began September 30, 1949, in St. Joseph, Michigan. Randy worked for many years as a Melting Supervisor for Bohn Aluminum. He also worked for Watervliet Paper Mill, Dave’s Amoco and Ridge and Kramer. He loved to tinker on cars and enjoyed using his handyman skills to fix things around the house or help others. When he wasn’t working or helping others he enjoyed going to concerts especially concerts on the bluff in St. Joseph. Randy was the proud “captain” of his fishing boat the SS Minnow on Rush Lake. Randy was active for many years with AA and loved being a mentor for others. His greatest entertainment and hobby was supporting his grandchildren in their activities.


Randy will be greatly missed by his loving family which includes: his wife of 38 years Sherry (Schultz) Craig; three sons Randy Jr (Debbie) Craig, Mike Craig, and Nathan (Kathy) Craig; his daughter Deena (Ansberto) Castillo-Velazquez; seven grandchildren Danielle, Devin, Brittne, Lauren, Katie, Shelby, and Quincy; 11 great grandchildren; three siblings Keith (Shelia) Craig, Shelly Clements, and Daborah (Mark) Dykstra; and many nieces and nephews.


Randy died Monday, July 25, 2022, at Spectrum Lakeland Niles. He is preceded in death by a daughter Kim Gifford, his parents Gilbert and Arlene (Burger) Craig, a brother Don Craig, and a sister Pat Enders.
