Age 67. Craig passed away on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, surrounded by his loving family.  He was son of Raymond and Frances White.  He worked as a Millwright for several paper making companies throughout his career, including Plainwell Paper, Menasha, Michigan Paper in Battle Creek and USG. Craig was a wonderful man who can be described by so many adjectives including loyal, helpful, loving, intelligent, and happy.  He was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.  He was also an expert fabricator and could build, fix or troubleshoot anything.  Craig was very dedicated to his children and grandchildren and was always by Nancy’s side.   Craig and Nancy were married on August 1, 1975 and enjoyed 43 fabulous years of marriage together.  He enjoyed so many things in life, including camping, hunting and Detroit Tigers baseball (when they don’t win, it isn’t pretty).  Craig was quite a jokester and loved to laugh at life.  He loved his sister’s cakes due to his sweet tooth.  He would grow Little Debbie treats if he could. He loved to give his son in law, Joel a hard time, and really tried to like Joel’s cooking. Craig was preceded in death by his father, Raymond and his grandparents.  He leaves to cherish his memory his mother, Frances, his wife, Nancy and their children:  Laura (Joel) Eusebio of Wayne, MI, Russell (Stephanie) White of Allegan and his beloved grandchildren, Easton, Eisley, and Escher White, as well as his siblings, JoAnn (Russ) Stratton of Plainwell, John White of Delton and Ben (Sheryl) White of Otsego. He also leaves many nieces, nephews and dear friends.
