Craig worked at Cinelux Delta Theatre in Brentwood prior to moving to Morgan Hill, where he was a theater operations manager. He truly enjoyed his job and was in the industry for more than 30 years. He enjoyed motorcycles and going on special outings with his children and wife.
Fatherhood was very important to Craig. To see his children laugh, smile and play was heaven on earth to him. Craig will be remembered as a devoted husband, loving father and loyal friend to many.
