Craig Stephenson

Peacefully at his home surrounded by his loving family, Craig aged 61 years of Clayton-le-Moors. The devoted and much loved hubby and best mate to Julie, adored son of Ruth and the late Bill, loving and loved dad of Erica and Lucy, loved step-dad to Dominic, cherished grandad of Jack, Ella, Molly, Harrison, Isla and Harvey, brother to the late Gina and also a dearly loved relative and friend to many.

Craig spent the last nine years working for Rolls Royce, he loved his work and was always a very proud member of the working team, always popular and surrounded by many friends. Although strong minded, Craig was easy going and could chat to anyone about anything and he could swear like a trooper. He was a regular face at his ‘office’ AKA The Royal Oak where he could often be found chatting away to his many friends whilst enjoying a pint or two. Craig loved to travel and together with his ‘best mate’ Julie he has travelled all over the world.

Most of all, Craig was the most doting husband, son and father and loved nothing more than being in the company of all those that he loved.
