He loved being outdoors and was an extremely skilled woodworker. Craig had a huge heart and was always doing for others. He was highly respected by many in the community. In addition to his mother, he was preceded in death by a son, Alex Keith Wicks of Conway.

As per Craigs request, there will be no public visitation.
"God Saw You Getting Tired"
God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be
so he put his arms around you
and whispered, "Come with me."
With tearful eyes we watched you
and saw you pass away
and although we loved you dearly
we could not make you stay
A golden heart stopped beating
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best
