Rob Craig

May 13 1962 – July 23 2010

It is with great sadness that Robert Sydney Craig…our Rob, passed away on July 23 in hospice in Red Deer Alberta. He will be deeply missed by his wife Carolyne, daughter Jody, sister Kathy, niece Samantha and mother Joyce Alp. Rob lived a big life not only in White Rock BC, but also in Sylvan Lake Alberta where he made his home. Rob will be remembered for his constant smile, and his love of fast cars, big trucks, loud rock and roll music, playing hockey and the oil business, which took him all over the world including far away place like Siberia, Tunisia, Libya, Swan Hills, and Fort McMurray. Rob loved the oil business and progressed from being a rig hand to eventually elevating himself to being a much sought after private consultant in the Natural Gas drilling field. Rob was a great hockey fan. He continually cheered for his beloved Vancouver Canucks even though he was at most times surrounded by Oiler and Flames fans.

Rob fought a long and courageous battle against cancer which first took his voice and then his life 6 years later. He never wanted to give up. Rob’s Rock and Roll Road Show is on its way to Heaven, when you see a sparkle in the sky..that is Rob winking at all of us that he will be there first, in the front seat of his beloved Camaro.

Rest well Rob, You will be really missed.
