Saddened that Carl has passed away. What a loss to our USACIDC and CIDAA community. Big and sudden surprise. Rest in peace, Carl. You are really appreciated.

Saddened to hear of Carl's passing. We first met at the 19th CID in Uijongbu in the '64-'65 timeframe, and it was always a pleasure to see him again at the many annual CIDAA meetings. Carl was an extremely skilled and dedicated CID Special Agent, and also contributed much to the CIDAA. May he be at peace and peace be with his family.
Sincerely....Dick and Mary Ann

Carl has been really sick for the past couple years. Being the proud person he was Carl didn't want everyone to know it probably because he didn't want people feeling sorry for him. He only confided in a few of us. Cancer had taken a toll on his health. I went with him to Chemo treatments on many occasions. The Chemo stopping working about 18 months ago and the cancer had gotten into Carl's bones. He fought very hard to beat the cancer and be strong for his wife who is also in poor health. I have been praying with Carl for about two years now hoping he would get healed of the cancer. During that time Carl turned his attention to making sure he was prepared when death would surely come. I thank God that Carl recommitted his life to Jesus Christ earlier this year. I saw the change in Carl from the tough guy that we all have known to a more gentle and kinder person that his relationship with Jesus Christ brought forth. I am convinced the Carl went home to heaven where he will never suffer again.

Carl Craig passed away this morning around 6am. He was strong until the end. Funeral arrangements have not been made at this time. Carl was a very devoted member CIDAA and gave a lot of his time to the organization. He will be greatly missed.
