Craig taught English for over 35 years, at Carnegie Tech, St. John’s University and for the majority of his career at Adelphi University. He loved literature and could often be found reading books, magazines, or newspapers. He had a passion for music, playing piano and organ for almost his entire life, first at East End Baptist Church in Brooklyn, then First Baptist Church of Freeport. Even after he moved to Maryland, he continued playing organ at his senior living community. Craig was very active in church, as an organist, choir member, teacher, and deacon. Craig was an avid railroad enthusiast. He enjoyed building model railroads and visiting any location that had a steam engine, subway car, or trolley. Craig enjoyed traveling near and far but his greatest joy was spending time with his children and grandsons. He was a very generous person who always helped out those in need.
