John Edward Craig


John Edward Craig of Wilmington, North Carolina died on February 26th, 2016. He was son to Faye Elizabeth Craig and Jesse Hunter Craig, and brother to Karen Chapman (Colin Chapman), Susan Collins (William Collins), and Jesse-Richard Craig.

John served in the United States Air Force for four years, and then went on to work for the Wilmington Port Authority as a Security Guard for the next twenty years before retiring. John had a very humble spirit, and it was always a gift to be around him. He did the best he could to make his family happy, and to make God happy as well, and we will always be grateful for the many years that we did get to spend with him.

A private family memorial will be held in John’s honor. Thank you to all of his friends and family who made his life as fulfilling as possible. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Lower Cape Fear Hospice Foundation 1416 Physicians Dr. Wilmington, NC 28401.
