Craig was born in San Diego on April 26th, 1989. During his childhood he moved from California to Colorado where he attended school and graduated from Heritage High School in 2007. He then attended college at Arapahoe Community College. Craig had many talents, such as landscaping and sales, that he put to good use by working hard in every job that he had. Craig enjoyed several hobbies during his life, but some of his favorites were fishing, playing with Roxy, spending time with his family, and all things Seattle Seahawks. During his life, Craig faced many struggles, but within his last years was able to find peace and happiness after accepting God. On November 18th, 2017, he married his true love, Aspen Bartholomew, and became a step-dad to her two little girls. If you knew Craig, you know that the day they became a family was one of his happiest moments. He shared a wonderful year and a half filled with great love and joy before his passing. In a letter written to his wife, Craig shared some beautiful words that she wishes to share now, in the hopes they will bring comfort to others as they did her.
"Life will get hard.
It is okay to go to bed angry, it is alright to go to bed sad.
But never lay down your head without hope that tomorrow will be better.
Most important, never fall asleep without remembering how much I love you."
- Craig Alan Bartholomew
