With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Craig.
Craig Eric Ward was born in Stettler on November 2, 1991. He was a son to Calvin and Donna and a brother to Braden and Brooke. Craig grew up on a farm near Kirriemuir and attended Altario school in his early childhood years and finished his high school years in Consort.
He enjoyed hunting, camping, golfing, playing cards and taking family holidays. When Craig wasn’t busy stirring up trouble with his friends, he was busy playing hockey. He had many successful years with a great group of guys who became his hockey family. He worked hard at an early age on the rigs, working his way to become a driller at Prestige Well Servicing and later moved on to operating in the oilfield. Throughout those years he made many good friends. If you ask anyone that knew Craig, most would say he had a real knack for irritating people, some will even say he mastered the trade.
Craig was also very caring & had a huge heart. He would help anyone, anytime, any circumstance. Craig married and had three beautiful kids. He loved nothing more than watching his kids play outside and taking advantage of all the cuddles at bedtime. His kids will always have the memories of camping, bunnock, lawn games, and family card nights with their dad.
Craig passed away in his home on April 26, 2022 at the age of 30 years.
Craig is survived by his kids Hudson, Harper and Dereck, and their mom Nicole; parents, Calvin and Donna; brother, Braden; sister, Brooke (Brendan) and their sons, Brax and Beau; grandparents, Lenard and Beryl Ward, Helen James, John and Rita Spencer; as well as many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
A funeral in Craig’s memory will be held on Wednesday, May 4, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. at the Consort Sportex Hall. Craig liked to be comfortable, be sure to wear something casual.
