Craig R. Wilson, 71, of Charlevoix, passed away peacefully on November 12, 2021 at his home.
He was born on June 24, 1950, in Detroit, the son of Francis and Betty (Craig) Wilson.
Craig was a truck driver for over 30 years, retiring at age 55. He enjoyed fixing anything mechanical in his workshop and spent many hours "tinkering" with just about anything you can imagine. Going fast with motorized vehicles was a priority of his and watching all types of racing, weather it be NASCAR, drag racing, snowmobiles, if it was a race, he enjoyed it. But most of all he loved his family, especially his 2 grandchildren.
On November 10, 1974, in Royal Oak, MI, he married Mary Louise Crow who survives. Also surviving are 3 sons, Craig R. Wilson Jr. of Alanson, Steven E. Wilson of East Jordan, Patrick R. Wilson of Charlevoix, 2 grandchildren, Barrett and Jenna Wilson and a sister Vicki (Randy) Hale of Hazel Park, MI.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
