    From the time in our car club, our years at Kodak and into retirement, Craig was always a great friend and a memorable part of those years. Your tour is done. Rest in Peace Friend.

    We met Craig when our daughter Kirsten married his son Justin. He was gracious and cordial during the time he was in Virginia, and we enjoyed hearing about his cars. We truly enjoyed our short time together . His wonderful son has enriched our lives tremendously Judy and David Clarke

    To Craig’s family, I met Craig when I was 4 years old when he came to Florida to visit. So honestly I did not know Craig but my Dad, Dave Kanicsar, was in Rochester Street Rods with him. I have a picture that I would like to share with the family if you can provide me an email address. I was actually looking for Craig on Facebook because I was going through my Dad’s old pictures and there was one of the two of them and I was trying to reach out to Craig. Unfortunately, I see I am 2 months too late. My Dad, Dave, passed away 2018. Anyways, I send my condolences to Craig’s family. Please advise if you have an email I can send his picture to. Thank you!
