Uncle Craig will be missed greatly. Memories of his infectious laugh will live on forever! I pray God gives Mary Jane and cousins peace and strength during this difficult time.
My big brother Craig was 11 years older then me. I knew if I came to him for advice. He would never judge. I saw him angry one time in my entire life. I was a selfish bratty teenager, and totally deserved that frustration from him. Lol. He had an amazing career as an ICU nurse. Everyone had nothing but good to say about his nursing capabilities. You can rest now big brother. I’ll see you in the other side. ❤️
Our condolences n prayers to the Sprester family. He lived next door to us for several years n was a very sweet gentleman. During his struggle with dialysis during recent years we would see him sitting on the front porch n often chat about his years as an ER Nurse n the Navy. We will miss his chuckle n smile as he always was there waving to neighbors. God bless his soul; may he be at peace in heaven.
The first time I was to met Craig, I was on the sidewalk on Seattle Drive when an ear piercing “loud” and barely running faded-purple Impala came chugging down the road! After pulling in the driveway a handsome tanned guy in a Navy uniform got out. Paul said, “that’s my big brother! us Sprester’s always make a grand entrance!”
I know that my brother Craig is in a wonderful place now. Find comfort that he is now resting in the arms of our Lord and has joined his father, mother and little brother Mark in heaven. I will cherish the memories we had growing up together as brothers, enjoying his wild stories and humor. He always tried to make me laugh even when I was down. See you soon big brother.
