I knew Craig when I was growing up in Lexington, KY. I would see him often when I visited Paul. He was always friendly and patient with us, even though we were much younger than he was. I remember sitting in the room he shared with Paul and listening for hours to Iron Butterfly, Buffalo Springfield, and Deep Purple. He would regale us with stories of his adventures, which seemed exciting, and larger than life at that time. Craig's bedroom always smelled like Brut cologne, which I thought smelled sophisticated and exotic. Some evenings we would take turns riding his 50cc Montgomery Ward motorcycle around the block. Top speed wasn't too high, but lots of fun. Thank you for making your corner of the world a better place back in my day. Rest easy with comfort and peace to your family.
Craig was the ICU nurse that you wanted beside you in an urgent situation. He loved a night out with the ICU crew and over the years, we enjoyed many a laugh. Rest easy old friend and sincere sympathy to your family!!!
MaryJane, so sorry to hear about Craig. I have so many good memories of him working in ICU, he would always put my sterile leeches on my patients for me. He would always keep us laughing. I am living in AZ or I would come to his service. My thoughts are with you and the kids.💕

I worked with Craig at St Josephs Hospital for many years. He was a great nurse and had a great sense of humor. I remember his chuckle and the twinkle in his eyes while telling a good story. He will be missed. Prayers to his family.
Craig was my cousin and I have so many good memories of his good humored, thoughtful and kind presence during our family gatherings. He will rest easy. I send love to my Lexington Sprester Cousins, and to Mary Jane and all of those who will carry on Craig's legacy.
I was a good friend of Craig's in high school and his early 20's following his tour of duty with the Navy. Regretfully, we lost touch over the years and a mutual friend informed me of his passing. The thing that stands most was his marvelous sense of humor, generosity and caring.
