    We were saddened to hear that Jim had passed away and offer our sincere condolences to all the family. I had the pleasure of working with Jim for many years with the Provincial Government. He was a great role model as a Tradesman but also as a friend. We spent many weekends camping at Sundre and will always have kind thoughts of our time spent with Jim and Pat at thier home.

    To the Craig Family,

    Lynne, Debbie, Lori, Ken and all,

    I was sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing…he and your Mom were among my favorite people going back to those Tuxedo and West Mt. Pleasant hockey days with Ken, the Wanvigs, Jansen etc. It was an awesome team and even better parent and family group. We kept in touch mostly through Christmas cards….alwasy enjoyed the comments as you all grew up. Cheers to one of the truly great families..the Craig’s. I tried to escape Saturday afternoon but could not due to Stampede duties.

    Best regards

    Jack Mac
