Does anyone here remember Craig? I am his older brother, and am trying to get a glimpse of who he was prior to his death. As I remember, he used to cruise a 32 footer with Gforce on the side. Anyone with pictures to forward, those also would be appreciated. I know he truly loved the water, it was like his second home.
Many thanks for whatever help,
Darren Macdonald

Darren, I have some pics from 2-4 years ago. Craig I hung out at Lake of the Ozarks and would talk on the phone once in a while. Then, Craig kinda drifted away and we lost touch. I hadn't talked to him for a couple years.

Post your email address and I will send you the pics I have and my contact info.

Also, Craig's screen name here was G-Force. If you use the advanced search function, you can read his posts and search for threads where he was mentioned. If you purchase a membership to the site, you can see any pics that were posted.

Did you see this thread??? http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...d.php?t=186858

Darren,

I too met Craig at Lake of the Ozarks. We often tied up next to him. He was a great guy - loads of fun to hang around with. We had something in common in that our boats were similar. I'll see if I can dig up some pictures.

Darren, I am sorry for your loss. I only met Craig once at an OSO party in Chicago. He was a great guy.
What happened that he was taken so young?

for those not knowing, Craig was struggling with demons most of us never have to go to war with, and in the end, the demons won. Craig took his own life on may 10th, 2008. I wish he had stayed longer. He was gone far too soon, and I will miss him deeply. There is a guestbook anyone can sign if you look up obits in the Northwest Herald(McHenry Illinois local newspaper), you should be directed to the book.
