On Monday, Feb. 15, 2021 Craig passed away peacefully after courageously battling Multiple Sclerosis for more than 25 years. Born March 25, 1967 in Afton, Wyoming to Jerry and Judy Roberts, Craig was the oldest of five children. Craig lived a very active childhood. He loved riding dirt bikes all over the mountains of Star Valley and also enjoyed water skiing and snow skiing. He graduated from Star Valley High School where he loved playing football and basketball.
He attended BYU before serving a full-time mission to Santiago, Chile North for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Craig had a lot of work experience. His favorite occupations were at Zion’s Bank and a Pharmacy Technician at Intermountain Healthcare Hospital. Throughout his long ordeal with MS, Craig never lost his positive outlook and his vivacious sense of humor that brought a smile to everyone’s face. All that knew him enjoyed his contagious laughter and quick wit.
