Craig Douglas Walker was born July 25, 1957 In San Jose, California, to his proud parents, Robert and Helen Walker.

Craig grew up in San Jose, playing soccer through grade school and junior college. He continued to enjoy soccer, tennis, and golf most of his adult life.

Craig obtained his Business Degree at Fresno State. After college, he was hired at Graybar Electrical in south San Francisco, transferred to Cleveland, Ohio and then to Mesa and Phoenix to finish 36 years with the company. He was a hard-working, loyal employee. Craig also enjoyed playing in local bowling leagues, traveling to Hawaii and Alaska.

Craig had one older sister, Diane, and two nieces and one nephew that cared for him greatly. He also had a caring wife, Amy, of seventeen years.

Craig was a lover of nature and people. He especially loved black labs. He loved plants, and anything in the woods and by the sea. Craig loved people and relationships more than any hobby or possessions.

Craig lost a short battle with cancer on June 7, 2016, but will see his Savior’s face before us all.

  • Seems like not long ago that you were here visiting me in Kentucky. It’s hard to believe you’re gone now. All of my memories of time spent with you are good ones. And I’ll find a good horse to bet on for you next time I’m at Keeneland. Rest in Peace Dear Friend.

  • I am sad he is gone.He is a good friend and he was fun to work with.I will miss him.He would always say Hi

  • I went to high school with Craig. He was very kind to me, more than I deserved. What a sweet soul he was. I regret not keeping in touch over the years; even though I had not seen him in 40 years I was just thinking of him the other day. God rest his soul.
