Craig Calvin Timothy
May 19, 1959 ~ July 31, 2012
Craig Calvin Timothy, age 53, reunited with his Heavenly Father July 31, 2012 after fighting the good fight with cancer for nearly two years.
He was born May 19, 1959 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Don Gilbert Timothy and Elsie Joan Christensen. He is survived by his wife Janet Tait Timothy, his sons Parker and Jordan, daughter Lauren and his sidekick Boomer. He also leaves behind his Father Don, Stepfather Harvey Ray Bills, Sister Terry (Marvin), Sister Jodi (Mark), and Sister-in-law Karen Timothy. He was preceded in death by his Mother Joan, Stepmother Bev, older Brother Guy, and his Father-in-law Don Tait.
Craig was a mentor and father figure to many people whom he loved and cherished. While teaching all the many ways to manage mischief, he was also able to include many gospel lessons that he felt were key to living a happy, successful life. He was always the first to attack in a water fight and the last to get wet. He was also usually the one to smooth things over when the squirting hose was brought through the house, soaking everything from the back to the front door. Humor, love and service were his weapons of choice; few there were that wanted to escape them, and even fewer could. Craig served in a myriad of callings in the LDS church. He served in many leadership positions, but he especially loved serving the youth of the church. His testimony was proven in the way he lived his life until the very end.
