Donnie Craig

August 24, 1950 – December 3, 2021

Donnie passed away peacefully at home with his wife and children at his side.  Donnie was a lover of all animals, especially his cat, Fredrick Paulowoski and dogs: Louie, Lennie and Lucky.

He enjoyed watching his grandkids in all their activities.  Also being an avid sports fan, Donnie loved watching IU basketball, even after Bobby Knight and during their off years.  He was the proud owner and operator of Craig Siding & Windows for more than 30 years.

Going back to his roots in Indiana, especially Delaney Creek, was a great enjoyment for him.

 Preceded in death by parents, Ed Craig and Roxie Hensley Craig Schoults; brother, Eddie Craig.  Survived by wife of 51 years, Jessica (Helsel) Craig; children: Stephen Craig (Heather), Daniel Craig, Donnie Craig; grandchildren: Mya Craig and Aaron Craig, Kaden Craig and Brooklynn Craig; sisters: Wanda Fleenor, Geraldine Green (Bob), Faye George; sister-in-law, Leslie Helsel; cat, Fredrick Paulowoski; dogs: Louie, Lennie, Lucky.

Per Donnie’s wishes, no services will be held.  Memorials are suggested in Donnie’s memory to Humane Society of Washington County Indiana, 204 W. Joseph Street, Salem, IN 47167 or Nebraska Humane Society, 8929 Fort Street, Omaha, NE 68134.

RIP “Clark”.

    Don was a good man who worked hard all of his life and loved his family and friends. He was blessed to have a wonderful family who took such good care of him, especially during his illness and passing. Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends. The loss is immeasurable, but so is the love left behind.
