Robert James “Jim” Craig, 61 years old, died May 10, 2020, at his home surrounded by his beloved family.
Jim was born November 25,1958, in Nyack, New York, the son of Robert “Dusty” Craig and the late Beverly Craig. He was the eldest of three siblings and a life long Rockland County resident, growing up in Spring Valley and living the past 28 years in Garnerville. He was happily married for 33 years to Jean Frank-Craig who survives him.
Jim started his career at Lederle Laboratory working his way up into the plumbing department and eventually founding his own successful business, Jim Craig Plumbing and Heating. He was the proud owner for more than 30 years.
He is also survived by his daughter and son-in-law Elizabeth and Justin Hunnicutt of Asheville, North Carolina; son and daughter-in law Matthew and Sarah Craig of Keeseville, New York; Father and his wife, Robert “Dusty” and Nicki Craig of Stuart, Florida; sister and brother-in-law Vicki and Ian Wint of Putnam Valley, New York; sister and brother-in-law Diane and Brain Quinn of Delmar, New York, and many loving in laws, nieces and nephews.
Jim was a loving, kind and generous husband and father and he will be missed every day by his family and friends. When Jim was not plumbing, you could find him on the golf course, gardening or enjoying time with friends and family. Two pieces of advice from Jim in his final weeks; don’t work too hard and wear sunscreen.
Jim died peacefully at home after a three year battle with cancer. A memorial service will be held in the future.
