Obituary of Craig William Veillette

Passed away suddenly on April 1, 2023 at the young age of 32. He is survived by his beloved daughter Maddix and her mother Mel, as well as his son Lucas. He was the cherished son of Barb (Mike) and Dennis (Tonya), and a loving brother to Shannon, Suzanne, Christine (Amanda), Serena, Alex and Adalyn. Craig was also adored by his nieces and nephews Patience, Hayden, Trey, Charlotte, Quinn, Emma, Liam and great-nephew Braxton. His beloved fur baby, Daisy, was a constant companion and source of joy in his life. Also survived by his grandfather Henry and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Craig had a passion for sports, especially baseball. He played for many years and had a particular fondness for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Maple Leafs. Craig also enjoyed Racing and going to Merrittville Speedway to watch the races. However, his greatest love was his family. He always put them first and cherished the time he spent with them. Craig's warm smile, kind heart, and generous nature will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him.

In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place. A visitation will be held in Craig’s honor at the Grantham Lions Club, 732 Niagara St, St. Catharines, on Sunday, April 16, 2023, from 1-3 p.m. His memory will live on forever in the hearts of those who loved him.

Craig was a wonderful man… kind and always managed to make me laugh even when I was down and out.I worked in the car dealership alongside Craig for a couple of years. He was a great support to me and a kind person. Godspeed Craig.

Thanks for you help and time.
