Sending our deepest sympathy to you Colin & Dana and family. We are thinking about you and sending our love - Posted by: Noreen & Jeff Templeton (Aunt & Uncle) on: May 08, 2023
Craig was the first person I met after moving to Winnipeg. Our friendship grew throughout the years. We spent countless hours cruising around the street of Fort Garry till all hours of the morning. Our passion for cars was our bond. We were partners in a couple race cars and enjoyed racing at the old Bison race track. We both met our high school sweet hearts in Fort Garry and got married within a year of each other. We both ended up living in St. Adolphe. We have many fond memories of the good times we enjoyed with Rhonda and Craig. Rhonda, so sorry for your loss we are thinking of you with love. Alan and Kathy Hills. - Posted by: Alan Hills (Friend) on: May 07, 2023

I have such fond childhood memories of Craig. He was our fun, attentive older cousin who would often drop by on his motorcycle for a visit. Rhonda and family, I am so sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Tannis Niziol (Cousin) on: May 06, 2023
