Kirk Stanley Craig (68) of Alto, Michigan, went to be with our heavenly father Thursday, August 31, 2023. Born January 27, 1955, to parents Ralph and Geraldine (Flynn) Craig. Kirk spent his childhood growing up on the family farm in Clarksville, MI and later moved to the Flynn farm in Alto, MI.
He is survived by his siblings Bonnie Craig, Wendy (Chuck) Grudzinskas, Tim (Debbie) Craig, seven nieces and nephews, several great nieces and nephews, and many friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Ralph Craig, mother, Geraldine Craig, and sister, Sheila (Gary) Gilbert.
Kirk was an outdoorsman. He enjoyed deer hunting in the fall with his brother and nephew, mushroom hunting in the spring, and hunting all the likes of wildlife including turkey, squirrel, and rabbit. In his earlier days he’d hunt raccoon, muskrat, and mink. He looked forward to time spent with his cousins and close friends at the family hunting cabin up north. He enjoyed fishing on the inland lakes and especially loved eating his catch. Kirk could often be found caring for his garden where he harvested much produce and shared with his Amway work friends until he retired in 2020.
A memorial service will be held graveside at the Bowne Center Cemetery on 84 th St SE, Alto, MI on Saturday, September 9, at 1:00 pm. A luncheon will follow the service at the Bowne Center United Methodist Church across the street. Donations can be made to Bowne Center United Methodist Church, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, or Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
