Obituary of Gary Kenneth CRAIG

May 15, 1942 - Orillia, Ontario
January 9, 2021 – Calgary, Alberta

Gary Craig, beloved father, grandfather and friend of Calgary, AB, passed away on Saturday, January 9, 2021 at the age of 78 years.

Gary loved to be outside, gardening and fishing used to be some of his favorite things to do. He loved to fix things and was very creative. Gary’s most memorable vacation was in Hawaii, which he raved about often.

Gary will be most remembered for the love that he had for his family, and how friendly he was to anyone he met. He always tried to make everyone comfortable and happy, he would give the shirt off his back, and he was the most selfless man. Gary will always be known as a fighter; he overcame many health issues over the last several years when all the odds were against him.

Gary is survived by his two daughters, Angela Baldwin (Chris) and Katherine Murphy (Kevin); and grandchildren, Tristan, Wesley and Lucy in Calgary; as well as extended family in Ontario, Canada

Gary was predeceased by his daughter Tammy Craig; parents, Lila and Jim Craig; brothers, Wayne and Jim, sisters, Betty and Rosalie and his dog Harley

If friends and family so desire, in lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Kerby Centre in Calgary a place Gary held close to his heart.
