In Memory

Craig Carrier

Craig Carrier

From Rupe Beckstett: Sorry to inform everyone that Craig Carrier passed away on January 13th. Craig and I were friends since we met in seventh grade, and we remained friends ever since. I last spoke to him about two months ago. I knew he had been dealing with health issues for several years, but he did not like to discuss his personal problems..............never a complainer. He had been a jogger and followed a healthy lifestyle until heart and cancer issues caused him to slow down. I recently spoke with his wife of nearly 50 years, Barb. She informed me of his passing. She also said that Craig did not want his friends to know of his impending fate, nor did he want an obituary (there is none.) Craig and Barb have lived in Palm Harbor, Florida (suburb of Tampa) for over 40 years and raised their two daughters there (Courtney and Kimberly). Craig was very successful in his career....he was in the banking industry and managed large projects in commercial real estate. Craig was a kind, generous, and unassuming soul. His glass was always "half-full" and he had a terrific sense of humor. We shared a lot of fun and laughter over the decades. Craig was also a huge Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan and was a season ticket holder. I know he's delighted that the "Bucs" are finally in the Super Bowl. I like to think that he will have the best seat in the house to watch the game. Condolences and deepest sympathies to Barb and the girls, and to the extended Carrier family. Rest in peace my friend.

I was so sorry to read this, and Rupe, you wrote a beautiful tribute to him.  Thank you.

Rupe:  You continue to amaze me with your sentimentality toward our town ... and more especially, the Rocky River Class of 1966.  I don't have (or know) the right words to say.  So I will just say "Thank You" for taking the time, your valuable time (indeed), to keep us informed of the happenings with our class members.  I truly appreciate what you are doing.  I know that it's not easy being a class agent.  I was once one, myself, for the Howe Military School Class of 1966.  But it goes further than this, Rupe.  You are more than a Class Agent.  You are a Class Act ... and a gift to us all.  A million THANKS, my friend.  And that really is not nearly enough!

Regarding Craig Carrier ... I Knew of Craig ... but did not know him well.  I'm sure he graduated to his heavenly home with flying colors.  May his family live in peace with his passing ... and may he now rest in peace for eternity.
