Obituary for Richard D. Craig

Richard D. (Dick) Craig, 77, of Aberdeen, MD, passed away Friday, September 7, 2018 at Citizens Care and Rehabilitation in Havre de Grace after a long fought battle with Parkinson’s Disease.
Born on May 8, 1941, Dick was the son of the late Faye and Mary Bennett Craig. He was a veteran, serving in the National Guard for 8 years, and worked for the Federal Government at Bainbridge and retired from Aberdeen Proving Ground as a management analyst. He was a past President of the Aberdeen Lions Club and chaired the Christmas tree sale for many years. He was also a member of the Aberdeen Jaycees, holding many offices, including President. He enjoyed playing softball and pitched for the Grace United Methodist Church softball team, the Jaycees and the Marylander Club. He was active in civic affairs serving on the city of Aberdeen’s Zoning and Appeals Board, as well as the Planning Commission. He was a member of Grace United Methodist Church and sang in the choir at church, as well as the Harford Choral Society.
His hobbies were many. He collected magnets, baseball caps, cards, pens and letter openers among many other objects on his and his wife’s many trips around the country. He also collected wizards and Van Briggle pottery. Dick also loved photography, working in the yard and being the family “handyman”. He enjoyed watching sporting events, playing games and attending his grandchildren’s many activities.
