Terrance R. Craig Sr. 12/28/1946-04/24/2023
Our beloved husband and father.
Handsome, kind, loving, funny and TALENTED!
Those are simple words, and only a few words I can use to describe this man. Every beautiful word, ever thought ,was Dad. I’m not sure how to describe the best Dad in the world, so I’ll tell you a little about him. A lot of people already know what a very talented musician he was. He brought so much joy, to so many people with his beautiful music. Especially his family. Music was his love. Dad played in many bands throughout the years, including the Mercy boys in his younger years. He played with many talented musicians, he taught several and looked up to many. His greatest love though was his family. His wife and partner of 60 years, Pamela and his children Terrance Jr. and Shelley Anne. Dad was a loving, devoted family man. He gave us all of him, all of his love, all of the time. He put up with all of our shenanigans over the years, maybe even embraced them! Seems no matter, he was proud of us and never wavered on his love for us. He was certainly forgiving!
Thankfully he had a great sense of humor, which mom recounts the most. He was witty, funny and charming with his contagious laugh! Besides music, family and friends, Dads greatest joys were fishing, golfing, Christmas and bingo! Probably many other things. He was a wonderful, loving grandfather to his grandchildren, Cody, Jackey, Gavyn and Tyler. He loved his great grandchildren, Dean and Lynnaea. If he would have only gotten more time with them. He is going to miss the birth of his newest great grandson. He would have loved him . Time took him too soon.
Dad was born in December of 1946, 28th to Clarence Craig and Norah Powell. He was unfortunately proceeded in death by his father Clarence, Mother Norah, uncle Harold, his brothers Tom, Timmy, Wayne and sister Sally. Also a few of his best friends, Clarence, Larry and Bob.
He is survived by his loving wife, Pamela Craig, son, Terrance Craig jr (Lana), Daughter, Shelley Anne Wise , (John), Step Mom, Virginia Craig, Grandchildren, Cody, Jackey (Chris), Gavyn (Ainsley), Tyler (Ashley), great grand children Dean and Lynnaea. Many nieces and nephews, Brother in laws John Hiatt (Jodi), Randy Hiatt. Not to mention, many , many friends, too many to mention. We would like to say a special thank you to Cliff Wilson. You’ve been a great friend to Dad. We appreciate your devotion, love and support. Thank you to everyone who has been with us in this difficult time. We appreciate all of your love and support.
Love, The Craig Family.
