    I am just hearing of the passing of Craig. We worked together in the South Bronx, cutting roof’s and kicking’ butt. Craig is a great guy and it saddens me to hear that he has left so soon. Rest in peace my friend, see you on the other side. Da Trixta

    We are so sorry to hear of Craig’s passing. He was a great neighbor to us for the past 7 years, always willing to help us out any way he could from pushing the trash can back to cutting our grass if he was cutting his. We will miss his friendly face. Our condolences to Donna and the family.
