Mark was an incredible baseball coach and we are so thankful for his dedication to encouraging youth in the sport. Through baseball, we were fortunate to have gotten to better know his family and him. He will be greatly missed.

Our deepest sympathy to the Craig family. It was a honor to say Mark was a good friend and a joy to have known. I got to know Mark when he came to work at Pen-Mar during summer and holidays and then full time after college. I asked him many times why he would want to work this type construction after college. He said he loved the work and the people he worked with. He took great pride in his work and always wanted it to be perfect. I never had to worry about the finished product as he always did the work as though it was for himself. He was a true family man. I have never seen anyone with as big a smile and excited as he was when he was leaving for a vacation with family. On return from vacation or Holidays he always had stories to tell of their adventures. He will not only be greatly missed by his family but by many friends

In high school we had a group of friends that hung out and called themselves the JO gang. Mark was a full fledged member. The gang would get together every weekend, sit around and make plans to attend all these great parties. After a night of talking, laughing, and being together we realized that we never made it out. When I got home at the end of the night I thought to myself that was fun. It's true - its not the destination, but the journey. Those times were so special to me. We grew up together and were there for each other. In our group when one of us is happy we are all happy and when one is sad we are all sad. Right now we're all very sad, but glad we could call Mark our friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I was very sad to hear about my old friend. I was lucky enough to have seen him just a few weeks ago, and will always be thankful for that. He was taken from us way too soon. My deepest sympathy goes out to Leigh, all of Mark’s children, and the entire Craig family. Mark will truly be missed by everyone that knew him. Cherish all of your great memories, as those will get you thru the days to come. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. - Gina

Dear Leigh and Family I have no words to describe how truly sorry I am of Mark's passing. I have had the pleasure of working with Mark these past five years and he was a remarkable person. Mark always took the time to ask how I was doing and always asked about my son. He always had a story to share whether it was taking a walk with his wife or doing something with his kids. You could always tell by the way he spoke about each and every one of you that you five were his world and he adored each of you very much. Please know that you have been in my thoughts and prayers during these past few days but also in the difficult days ahead. Hugs to you all. Kristy

I am thinking of you at this time and hoping to share some words of comfort. Personal experience has proven to me that the loss of a parent can be especially devastating. I’ve found that meditating on Scriptures from God’s Word can give bereaved family members the strength needed to get through this difficult time. One example is found at John 11:21-27, 32-35, 39-45. Jesus showed great compassion when his friend Lazarus died, even giving way to tears. Afterward, he brought his friend back to life. He will soon perform that same miracle for our loved ones who have died. (John 5:28, 29) May Jehovah God comfort all of you during your time of bereavement.
O'Roke Family left a message on December 18, 2013:
Our family will always remember Mark as being an energetic, hard working, kind, family man. We always felt welcomed into his home since the day we moved next door. We are not only proud to have called him a neighbor, but a friend. We all have very fond memories of the time we were able to spend with him. We pray for peace for his family in the coming days.
Robin left a message on December 17, 2013:
We love you Mark and are missing you terribly. Your little buddy Luke is so sad that you are gone. I am heartbroken that he will not see you anymore - he loved spending time with you and ALWAYS wanted to come see his Uncle Mark. Remember everytime Luke and I would head home after a summer weekend at your house and Luke would be so mad that we had to leave..you would walk to the car and fist bump with him...Oh, I will so miss that. We, your entire family, will look after all you have left behind. Your legacy lives on in each of your awesome children. Bring Leigh signs - the little bird was awesome. I wish you were still here with us. Love you Mark.

I am very sorry to hear about Mark. I will miss having come by the shop and talking sports. A great guy with an engaging smile. He will be greatly missed.

Michael Newton left a message on December 17, 2013:
After working with Mark for over twenty years, I can say that he was a fair and generous man. He was a hard worker and was particular about the work that he did. I know that he cared, loved and put his family first as I worked closely with him and he talked about them frequently . When he started Craicon, I also saw that he was a good businessman and was very determined . After retiring to South Carolina I hadn't seen him for two or more years but I still have fond memories of those days. I am so sorry to see his passing.
