Michael Craig Obituary


Michael Craig was born November 24, 1949, to the late James Craig Sr and Arlena Craig in Cleveland, Ohio. He was preceded in death by his parents James and Arlena Craig and brother James Craig Jr. 

Michael received his high school diploma from the Cleveland Public school system where he graduated valedictorian of his class. After graduating Michael worked for Penske as a driver. He accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age. He was a very spiritual man and a deacon within the church. 

Michael was united in holy matrimony to Deborah Kirkpatrick on July 7, 2001. Out of this union the two joined together eight children. 

In his spare time Michael enjoyed cooking and preparing dinners to which he sold to all those who enjoyed his cooking. He had a love for music which he shared with others as he worked as a Dj and entertainer. Michael was great at fixing things. He was known to his family as the modern day McGiver. 

Michael enjoyed fashion and dressing well. He enjoyed the moments he got to share his love for fashion with his wife Deborah as they often could be seen out matching and dressed alike. 

Michael was a family man who loved his children and grandchildren deeply. He deeply loved his wife who he affectionately called My Heaven or Babycakes. 

Michael received the call into sweet eternal rest Monday February 5, 2024. 

His memories will be cherished by his loving and devoted wife Deborah Craig; five children born of a previous marriage Jenay (Deon) Mims, Shareese (Gordon) Watkins, Patreese Craig, Michael Craig II, Mark Craig, three bonus children William Kirkpatrick, Javon Mottley and David Perrington, sister Darlena Craig, fourteen grandchildren and a host of other family and friends.
