When Death Occurs
Craig Royse Smith
Condolences for Craig Royse Smith
My love and prayers are with you all. Lovingly, your cousin, Jan
Thinking of you, praying for you. Love, cousin Robin.
I knew Craig from viaLink. He was a good guy. I enjoyed working with Craig. My sympathies are with his family. Keith
Greg and I thought so much of Craig and we are going to miss him.
I know this is almost three years late but I felt compelled to write anyway. My kids were thinking about going to Mo rolla so I thought I might look up my old high school friend to see what he thought of the school as one of the last times I saw him he was starting a promising career and heading to TX after graduating. I was very saddened to find his Obit and see that he had passed away. When I moved to Ozark as a Junior, Craig and I became friends and survived Junior/Senior year together. He was known as a fun loving young guy with a habit of questioning authority. He had a photographic memory that made us all jealous as he never needed to study. He had a pretty tough childhood in some ways but kept a good attitude about life. We were surprised when he went to Rolla but not surprised of his success. Like most high school kids, we lost touch after a few years. I was pleased to see (in the video) what a happy life and beautiful family he had. I will always remember Craig when I hear Willie Nelson and Bruce Springsteen as he wore those LPs out at his little duplex in Ozark. Next time I float the North Fork near Dora I will have a toast to Craig Smith! Dave Appleton Class of 1980 Ozark High School Sincerely- Dave Appleton
