Fyi: visiting my son in St. Pete, and was told that Michael Craig passed away March 29, 2012. Mike and his family have lived right here in St Pete with a successful business and evolvement with church and family. So sad to hear this news. Many memories of years at Northeast Little League as parents and administrators. He will be missed. Prayers to all his family.

Obituary in st Pete times on line. I got to know Mike and Debbie when our eldest sons attended St Raphael's school. We were cub scout leaders together, and Little League Parents for several years. Mike had a success up business in St. Petersburg, as well. He will be missed by many. My heart and prayers go out to Debbie and their children. As well as the rest of his family

I never knew Mike in high school--like so many of us didn't know each other--but, I did have an opportunity to speak with him personally two times last summer--when I was trying to get him to join our website and come to our reunion.  He has been marrried a long time--30 something years--had kids and grandkids--built a successful business and was involved in his church and coached kids.  I told him pretty remarkable things in today's world!  We chatted about the changes in St. Pete., the recession, and life in general.  I told him that in 10 years 30% of us wouldn't be around.  Who would have known....rest in peace Mike! May God give strength to his widow Debbie and family at this sad time!
