CRAIG SISK It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Craig Sisk on Friday, March 29, 2012 at the age of 34. Craig will be lovingly remembered by his daughter Natalie, his parents Clay and Mary, his sister Shannon (Kyle and Acelyn), his grandparents John and Rogene, his aunts, uncles and cousins. He will also be sorely missed by his many friends and colleagues throughout Manitoba and Saskatchewan. He is predeceased by his grandparents Charlotte and Walter Bear. Craig was born in Winnipeg, MB on March 19, 1978. He graduated from John Taylor Collegiate in 1996 and began working at R.B.C. In 2004, he returned to school at Red River Community College where he received his Power Engineering Certificate and worked for The Seven Oaks School Division. In 2006, Craig moved to Saskatchewan, making Regina his home, and working at Coronation Park School. Earlier this year, Craig moved back to Winnipeg, to work at Sanford Collegiate. Craig had a beautiful smile, an infectious personality, and a unique (sometimes mischievous) sense of humour. He enjoyed running (he ran the Regina Marathon in 2009), watching a good soccer match or an obscure movie, and spending time chatting and laughing with his friends. He was a vegetarian and a lover of animals. Craig was happiest when there was music in the air. He shared his passion for music with others through his DJing. He was an important member of the electronic dance music communities in Winnipeg and Regina. A memorial service will be held Saturday, April 7 at 2:00 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Avenue. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to an Educational Trust Fund for Craig's daughter, Natalie Werry-Sisk. Cheques (In trust for Natalie Werry-Sisk) can be deposited or sent to The Bank of Montreal, 3330 Portage Ave., R3K 0Z1. For those who wish to sign the online Guest Book please visit our website.

  • You are not only missed by me but by the 240 students and 32 staff at Coronation Park Community School. We all love you Craig! Thanks for never complaining about the crazy things we asked you to clean:) - Posted by: Holly Allison-Kay (co-worker/friend) on: Apr 18, 2012

  • Shocked, saddened- yet appreciative of the time I have spent with you. Thank you for the home-made wine, the sense of humor and the white suit/hat that brightened the room. You make me smile just thinking of you. Kisses honey. X - Posted by: Stacey Bradley (Regina friend/Cornation Park co-worker/dancer to his music) on: Apr 13, 2012

  • I am truly moved by reading all the people's lives that you have touched in your life and now mine in your passing. May you forever rest in peace. - Posted by: Aaron () on: Apr 10, 2012

  • Even though I didn't know Craig very well, it was always a pleasure to see him over the 10+ years we've known each other. He always took the time to give a hug, say hi and to talk even if he was busy doing something else. His infectious smile, great taste in music, and the way he made people laugh will always be remembered and definitely missed. Rest easy Craig, we'll miss you. - Posted by: Kerry Hebert (friend) on: Apr 09, 2012

  • Very lovely service. Kyle gave a really fantastic eulogy and the memories that were read out jogged some positive and funny memories in me. Like how he was obsessed with WWII movies (I have probably seen every single one at least twice), The Prisoner (tv show) which we watched on VHS (we had to borrow a VHS player to watch it), Twin Peaks (tv show), how we ruined the suspension on our car one year by taking a "short cut" back from Regina which ended up actually being 2 hours of potholes and road cave-ins on a highway that was essentially closed, the time he accidentally pepper-sprayed our entire building, smoking out all our neighbours when he dumped super crazy hot sauce into a hot pan and we had to use hair dryers to melt the windows to get them open, and of course that time he rented the gorilla suit.... The family-only internment (putting the urn in the wall) was sad, everyone was crying. But the reception with friends and the family time back at the Sisk house after that were really healing for a lot of people. What a strange thing to be at a funeral for someone with so much life. That is what makes it unreal. I never knew anyone with more enthusiasm -- often that enthusiasm was misguided! But nevertheless I never knew anyone with so much of it. There were 180+ people there, the chapel filled and there were at least 30 in the side room who had to view the service on a tv. The family received word of countless people from out of town that were stuck because of hail storms. It's really nice to see that he had such a lasting and special effect on people and I was really happy to see most of the young people were not random partiers but rather were the promoters, musicians, and djs who had known him 10+ years. Pretty special that he was able to build and maintain so many lasting friendships. - Posted by: Abbey Jackson () on: Apr 07, 2012

  • You made C and T's life happy with your friendship. I will always remember you living with my brother and making music. You will be missed. Our hearts go out to your family. Rest well friend. - Posted by: Cindy and Bob (Friends) on: Apr 07, 2012

  • You will be missed. - Posted by: Delaney (Friend) on: Apr 07, 2012

  • I had the privilege of seeing Craig DJ in Regina at his last show before he moved back to Winnipeg. I never realized at the time how fortunate I was to have one last dance to one last ultimate mix by the great Sisk! I always wondered how he could smile so big for so long and never get tired or have sore cheeks. Craig was one of my favourite Dj's and always played music that lifted the soul. He is and will be missed. - Posted by: Lesley (friend) on: Apr 07, 2012

  • HE WAS MY BRO AND WILL BE OFTEN THOUGHT OF, AND NEVER FORGOTTEN.I KNOW HES IN GOOD COMPANY NOW DOING WHAT HE LOVED, PLAYING MUSIC AND PARTYING WITH A GOOD FRIEND. - Posted by: CLAYTON (BRO) on: Apr 06, 2012

  • It is with a heavy heart that I say I will not be there to say goodbye, Mikhail and I will both be there in June though to stop by, say hello and hopefully catch up with your parents and sister. I love you my friend, thank you for being you! <3 - Posted by: Marshall Catterson (close friend) on: Apr 06, 2012

  • I have fond memories of working with Craig at Coronation Park Community School in Regina. His kind spirit and friendly nature was appreciated by the staff and students. To his family and friends, I am sorry for your loss. To Craig, may you find the peace you were searching for and know that you will be missed by many. - Posted by: Pam Wenger (Former co-worker) on: Apr 06, 2012

  • You were one of the first friends of Marshall's I ever met. We connected instantly and still do. Your spirit will carry on through our hearts and your legendary smile will live on forever. Rest in peace dear friend. The sun goes down the stars come out all that counts is here and now. My universe will never be the same. I'm glad you came. Forever in my heart until we meet again may the sun rise up to meet you. - Posted by: Kelly Weimer (Connect Tribe/ family) on: Apr 06, 2012

  • I knew Craig through my great friend Szabi. Craig was always smiling. I last saw him at Szabi and Lindsey's social and teased him about a few grey hairs. I didn't see him often but I will always remember his smiling face. My deepest sympathies to all his friends and family. - Posted by: Heather Hopkins () on: Apr 05, 2012

  • I knew Craig through his music! He was one of the happiest djs out there! He always did things to make other people smile! Connect was always soo fun with him there. It's going to be very different without him this year!! My deepest condolences goes out to all his family. I know how hard it is to lose someone so close to you!! Miss you lots Craig!!! - Posted by: Kirstin Hill (Friend) on: Apr 05, 2012

  • Craig always treated me with the utmost respect, always. I'm not going to write a biography on myself for the mere purpose of helping the readers of these comments understand how huge that is, but it was. To say that receiving this amount of respect from another man is rare, would be an understatement on my behalf. I can't find words to express that intangible feeling I would experience from his kindness. When we would interact, I felt like a human being, and I will never forget that. To me, he always shone above most men for being such a gentleman, and having the kind heart that he did. I never told him this, and now I wish that I had. I genuinely hope with all of my heart that you are at peace Craig. Much love. - Posted by: Andrew Horn (Friend) on: Apr 05, 2012

  • It seems like forever ago that I first met Craig... The beautiful smile that is mentioned is the first thing I remember. We worked together at RBC beginning in 1999. He made me welcome there in the very first week and we quickly became friends. Everyday he would drive me home from work (if I remember right, he drove a Beretta), we would talk a lot about life and he would always tell me about his family especially his sister Shannon and about his daughter Natalie and how they were a big part of his life. Craig was such a truly amazing person and I am happy that I got to tell him that as often as I could. Craig even helped me find homes for my rabbits when I could no longer keep them at my apartment. Shannon took them in and I knew she would be a good home for them if she was even a 1/4 of the person Craig was. I miss you Craig and I hope you are finally at peace! I love you!! - Posted by: Christina Emond (Friend) on: Apr 05, 2012

  • You are an amazing person Craig. I will never forget your infectious smile and the way you accepted everyone. You're at peace now and when I hear a storm I know it's just you rockin out :) I love n miss you. My condolences goes out to Craig's family n friends. Gone but never ever forgotten - Posted by: Morgan (friend ) on: Apr 05, 2012

  • See you on the other side my friend. May you rest in peace - Posted by: Rodger (Friend) on: Apr 05, 2012

  • Beautiful obituary, such a kind soul. Deepest sympathy to family and friends. May the kindness from his heart shine from the so many who loved him. peace - Posted by: Lisa Stretten () on: Apr 05, 2012

  • One of the last time I saw Craig, I helped him move some of his stuff out of my house so he could take it back to Regina. This made me late for work, but he gave me a ride. We chatted and shared a smoke on the short trip. He dropped me off, said goodbye then was on his way. He was a good guy like that, if you helped him out, he'd return the favor as best he could. And he almost always had a smoke to share. Goodbye Craig, I will miss you. - Posted by: Dane McGuire (Friend) on: Apr 05, 2012
