Craig and Anette were my Sunday School teachers as a teenager. So many great memories of that time in my life. Your influence is still felt 30+ years later.

Today and tomorrow we will say “until we see you again” to Craig. He and Annette have been pillars in our former church, examples of a Godly marriage and true encouragers to our family. So many times over these many years we would get a hug, an infectious smile, a tease and laughter s well as encouraging words during difficult times from Craig. He loved God, he loved his family, and he loved his church families. He will be missed. Sending our deepest condolences and God’s comfort and peace to Annette, their children, their spouses, and all of the grandchildren. We love you guys and are lifting you up today and always. ♥️

A man's contribution in this life time might best be measured by those whom he chose to love and those who chose to love him. His legacy lives on in those lives his love touched. Time moves slowly in this life but is only a blink where he resides now. His work here is completed. We are all under God's watchful eye and care as we complete ours. Love Ron

So sorry to hear about the Home-going of Pastor Craig. Annette and family you are in our thoughts and prayers. I remember the last time we saw Pastor Craig was last year at Krispy Kreme while we were on our way to move to Alaska. Glad to have gotten the chance to see him again before he made the final departure to Heaven. We are so very thankful to have gotten to know Pastor Craig and your sweet family while we were members of Jefferson Avenue. I know my dad thought the world of Pastor Craig, and I bet they must be up there re-uniting again. I think it was Craig who made Jefferson Avenue uniquely Jefferson Avenue. He was such a caring, and wisdom giving, man of God that will have an impact on future generations. May God comfort your grieving hearts in this time. Paula Swenson And then one day, I'll cross the river, I'll fight life's final war with pain; And then, as death gives way to victory, I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives! Chorus Because He lives, I can face tomorrow, Because He lives, all fear is gone; Because I know He holds the future, And life is worth the living, Just because He lives!
