Obituary of Craig Andrew Richardson
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Craig Andrew Richardson, loving husband, father and son. He fought a courageous battle with cancer surviving against all odds the first time. It came back with a vengeance this summer and although he fought with everything he had in him, he lost his final battle on Friday, November 24th, with his wife, Kim, his son, Cole and his mother, Debby by his side.
Craig was most content when in the drivers seat, whether it be in the woods on his ATV or on the lake in his boat. From the time he was young every friend on the street would bring their bicycles to Craig to be fixed. This continued in his garage with dirt bikes, ATV’s and anything with wheels.
He leaves behind his loving wife of 24 years, Kim (Caldwell); son, Cole, who made him so proud; mother, Debby; brother, Korey (Katherine); three nephews, Jared, Owen (Erika) and Lukas, to whom he was a fun uncle; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Bill and Heather Caldwell; brother-in-law, Shawn Caldwell; along with numerous aunts, uncles and especially cousins who loved him very much.
He was predeceased by his father, Allan Richardson; maternal grandparents, Cecil and June McIntyre; and paternal grandparents, Jack and Betty Richardson.
Heartfelt thanks are extended to Amber Phillips and the Palliative Care Unit in Windsor and to the special nurses on floor 5A at the Victoria General Hospital.
