CRAIG JOHN AULD
Craig is predeceased by his parents, Alice and Jim and survived by his wife, Margie; sons, Jeff (Kirsten) and Jamie (Marcy), granddaughter, Avery; brother, Brian (Rhonda), niece Lindsay (Josh); cousin, Bruce; and Aunt Marg and families.
Craig often shared how fortunate he and his family have been in the opportunities they have had, experiences and love they have shared. He was always the biggest supporter and fan of his sons' endeavours, sports and other activities and Grandpa Craig showered his granddaughter, Avery, with love, attention and special times.
He was born January 14, 1945, and that summer, his love for a little piece of heaven known as Grand Beach began. He always made everyone feel welcome and he often shared stories and memories of the laughs and good times at "the corner" with family and neighbours. You know who you are.
Craig was an avid baseball player and fan and played on several men's fastball teams in Winnipeg and then ten years of Senior Men's slo-pitch in Arizona. Baseball was not his only sports interest, as he was a fan of almost all sports. The highlight being the chance to have his picture taken with his favourite hockey player, Phil Espisto, when he and his family were at a hockey game in Arizona. In addition to sports, Craig was an old rocker at heart and some of his favourite times included attending various concerts across the years with his wife, family and friends.
Craig worked for 35 years with Codville Company/Sobey's and upon his retirement in 2002, he and Margie enjoyed spending their winters in Arizona for 15 years. Craig enjoyed travelling with his wife, especially to Hawaii, his favourite getaway, where many memories on the beach with the sunsets were created.
Craig will be deeply missed by his family and friends. His humour, love of life, and his great appreciation for all of the fortunate opportunities are his lasting legacy.
A private interment will occur with immediate family. A small gathering of friends and family will occur afterwards with location to be determined.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation (www.cancercarefdn.mb.ca).

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
As relatively new beach neighbors Barb & I were pleased at the warm welcome we received from the "corner community". We will always remember the sound of Craig's boisterous laughter as he socialized with family and friends around the BBQ. Craig's gentle personality and obvious affection for his family will be sorely missed. - Posted by: Ron & Barb Coles (Beach Neighbouur) on: Aug 31, 2021
Sending you my deepest condolences Marg, Jeff, Jamie & families. Craig is definitely one the nicest, friendliness people I’ve met, I remember feeling like an instant friend the first time that I met him. Always welcoming at the their cottage in Grand Beach and my vacation in Mesa to visit Craig & Marj is definitely one of my fondest vacations. It was so relaxing and full of scenic tours. Craig even chauffeured me all around Mesa to support my shopping addiction. He will be greatly missed by you all but hold those memories close as his spirit will always be around you every time you think of him. - Posted by: Amber Pomarenski (Friend) on: Aug 29, 2021

So sorry to hear of Craig’s passing. We met in Mesa (Dunes) several years ago and would often run into him at Costco or wherever. Dan and Craig would often share sports stories and now they can do so again. Sincere condolences to the family. - Posted by: Par Sernyk (Friend from Mesa) on: Aug 28, 2021
