Obituary

Obituary for Craig Stephanson

Craig Everett Stephanson has left this world for a better view than he could ever achieve jumping out of planes or hanging from skyscrapers! Craig suddenly departed on his greatest journey Sunday, October 20, 2019 in Medicine Hat. His parents, Jack and Sylvia and brother Brad of New Westminster, B.C. are left to cherish his life and endure the loss of Craig. Craig’s uncles, aunts and cousins will forever hold in their hearts the special energy and life force that was Craig. Craig was infectious, a smile and sense of humour that brought sunshine to the table. He was hard to ignore and often a ringleader, and we know a party unto himself. He created things of beauty, whether it be a simple apple pie or a major renovation...all flourished under Craig’s hand. As did his connections with all of us. Craig loved his family, he loved his friends and he loved life hard! Let us all remember the man and let these memories guide his spirit to his next destination. Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at SAAMIS MEMORIAL FUNERAL CHAPEL, 1 Dunmore Road SE Medicine Hat, AB T1A 1Z5, , on Tuesday, October 29th, 2019 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Vigil Rites (Prayers) will follow at 7:00 p.m.The Funeral Service will be held at SAAMIS MEMORIAL FUNERAL CHAPEL on Wednesday, October 30th, 2019 at 3:00 pm with Father Vijaya Bathineni officiating.
