So sad to learn of Craig's death in the OSU Optometry Alumni Magazine - my heart goes out to Gail and family. I won't ever forget your visit to Walla Walla - I was so glad to see how your marriage and partnership had prevailed. While we have never really stayed in contact, you two have always been an inspiration and a comfort to me over these many years. Reading the condolences, I too remember that 1980 Memphis trip for the AOSA convention!! I trust that your memories of Craig will sustain you, and wishing you strength in your grief. Walla Walla will always welcome a return visit from you, Gail! Barbara Hetrick and family.
Craig was a great guy! I was his secretary in the Bridgeport Lions Club. He was a great president. I enjoyed being in the club with him. He was a kindhearted man, I am lucky I got to meet everyone in the Lions club.
God Bless his family. LORD, please help his family and friends thru this sad time, in the name of Jesus, amen.
It breaks my heart to know that my brother Jake left us much too early after a long tough battle with cancer. Jake and I have been on a mission from God since 1977 during our days at Ohio State. Jake has now completed his mission and I know he is in heaven eating his four fried chickens and a coke, while I’m still here eating my dry, white toast. I’m sure he is also sharing some great blues music with all the angels in heaven. I’ll never forget the four great years we spent together at Ohio State and all the fun times we shared together. Our deepest sympathies to Mrs. Jake and her wonderful “Blues” family. We love Jake, and will never forget him. Love,
Elwood and Mrs. Blues
Craig will be missed. We sat together a few years ago at an Ed Kelly award ceremony and went to lunch together afterward and visited our high school advanced math teacher. We had great conversation and it brought back many memories. We were at the Church McKee arts center for the ceremony and waiting for a group picture to be taken. I missed the photo op. When Craig saw me he says "where were you, you missed the group photo". I looked at him, rolled my eyes and then he says, " the bathroom, right?" I shook my head and he said "I'm familiar" and we both laughed. It was a good time and just sorry we never got in that last round of golf together.
Gail and family, I’m so saddened to learn of Craig’s passing. He was such an outstanding person both personally and professionally..I pray that Craig has found the peace he so richly deserves. May the perpetual light shine upon Craig and all the souls of the faithful departed now and forever. Amen.
Dear Gail and Family, Craig was a nice young man in high school. He was a good student and enjoyed sports! Gail and he were such a cute couple. I was happy to see them every once in a while after high school. I was saddened by his cancer diagnosis and know he fought the good battle! May you all be blessed by wonderful memories! May he rest in Peace! Trina Light Melody
Sending love to Gail, Jesse, and Traci during this difficult time. I'm grateful for the time I got to spend with Craig over the years. While I was very sad to hear of his loss, I'm also grateful to know that he is no longer suffering. I truly wish that I could be back for the memorial, but please know that I will be there with you all in spirit. Peace be with all of you.
Jesse, Gale,Traci and family. I was deeply saddened by the news of Craig's passing. I always remembered his laughter and smile when I would come to pick up Jesse's paper bill and the positive attitude he had when Jesse had his accident years ago. I cherish the memories from those days shared with your family. Prayers for all in your time of grief. I will be celebrating a life we'll lived. Rest in Peace Craig until we all meet again.
Gail and family, I was so sorry to hear of Craig's passing. His suffering is now over. I remember when we heard the news, Scott was so worried about him. I lost Scott last June. I am so glad that you had so many decades with him to create such wonderful memories. I pray they give you comfort.
I am heart broken to hear the news of Craig's passing. I had the pleasure to meet Craig in the fall of 1977 as we both began our freshman year at The Ohio State University College of Optometry. My apartment was close to Craig's and we would often walk to class together in the morning. He was simply a great guy. Quiet most of the time but what a sense of humor. I can remember when he would perform as Jake from the Blues Brothers with our fellow classmate Alex (Elwood). They were very good and entertaining. He also produced some creative and funny video tapes such as The Rapping Eye Doctor and Mr Bill (SNL skit) goes to the eye doctor. Oh my god!!! They were hilarious. I will never forget our road trip in the Liebig van to Memphis in 1980 for AOSA convention.
Craig, you will be sorely missed but we know you are in a better place now. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Liebig family. You can rest a little knowing Craig is working on new funny videos in heaven. And what a beautiful captive audience he has.

So sorry to hear about the passing of Craig! Our special memory of Craig was our band trip to TN when all the bus broke down. Craig wrote a little song about that trip and I still have somewhere here at the house.
Sending prayers off peace & comfort for his family.
