UNITED STATES ARMY VETERAN

CRAIG, Ronald Willis, Sr. Born Aug 25, 1945 and passed on July 28, 2021 at the age of 75. Ronnie was an Army Veteran during Vietnam from December 1967 to August 1969. He was a retired firefighter in Reading, Ohio; a painter, plumber, and all around handyman. He used to say, “Jack of all trades and master of none”. He was the son of the late William and Frances Craig. He was the twin of the late Donald Wallace Craig. He is survived by sisters, Edna Gray and Brenda Mader; as well as brothers, Gerald and Richard Craig. He was a loving husband to wife Carolyn Sue Craig (née Hunkler). He was the beloved father of 4 children and their spouses; Tamera Renee Williams (Simonson), Carolyn Sue Britt (Craig) and her husband Mike, Ronald Willis Craig Jr., and Donald James Craig and his late wife Bobbi (Connolly). He was the grandfather “Papaw” of Mary Christine Yeary (Bingham) and her husband Adam, Mark Allen Wilson Jr and his wife Denise (Schmidl), Faith Ann Wilson with significant other Jamon Williams, Jessica Lynn Clark (Wilson) and her husband James, Cheyenne Leree Carter (Williams) and her husband Austin, Brandi Gutzwiller (Yates) and her husband Charles, Arial Nicole Craig, Miranda Lei Andromeda Craig, Selena Marie Craig, and Donald James Craig Jr. He leaves behind 14 great grandchildren, Jamerra Kamajae Williams, Devon LaMonta Williams, Declan Lee Nye, Aiden Daniel Yeary, Emily Rose Carter, Jaelynn Sue Nye, Alex Doyle Yeary, Charles Edward Gutzwiller Jr., Robert Michael Gutzwiller, Jamison Marie Clark, Harmony Faith Williams, Ashton Tyler Yeary, Lilly Grace Carter, and Bjorn Joseph Wilson. Ronnie also leaves behind many in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, and what we all call extended family, that although they were not blood related, they called him Daddy, Uncle Ronnie or Papaw because he treated them just like they were his child, niece, nephew or grandchild. This list of extended family is far too many to list, but they know he couldn't have loved them more.
