It is with great sadness that we announce Craig John Fawcett has passed at the young age of 38. Born on June 18,1981, in Edmonton, Alberta, our beloved father, papa, son, brother, passed suddenly on May 16, 2020 at the Aberdeen Hospital, New Glasgow. Craig will be missed everyday by Dawn, his spouse of 20 years; Joshua (Kourtney Jones), his son; Cecilia, his daughter; his loving grandchildren, Ezekiel, Ezra and Tanner; Janet, his Mommy; John, his Dad; Sarah, his sister; Max Rolph, his brother-in-law; Cecil and Nancy Charlton, his father and mother-in-law; Grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins and many great friends.
If you were to ever see my father you would know he always had his fur babies not too far behind, always running around right by his side. He was loved by all his fur babies, Kaos-deceased, Loco-deceased, Corona-age 10, Cruz-age 7, Keta-age 5. We know Craig is now with his Nana, Pop, Grandad in Heaven watching over us.
Joshua: Craig was an inspirational father, whose heart was made of gold in the purest form. He had a contagious, positive aura that brightened the room, and an amazing set of morals that will live on through his children and grandchildren. He showed true love for his family and brought happiness into everyone’s world, as he will forever.
Cecilia: My beloved father was a kind-hearted, thoughtful and intelligent man. He has always worked every day since he was a young man and after time, he became a respectable, self-employed owner of his own company “Fawcett’s Roofing and Contracting” and even though he struggled dealing with his Type 1 Diabetes, he always provided things his family needed and an unbelievable amount of love and support. I do wish every person had a blessing to meet this amazing man because he always stayed in a spot in everyone’s hearts. My father will forever be missed and carried on in memories and laughter.
Sarah: Craig was an amazing brother, father, son and my hero. He was always there for me when I needed him. You went too soon and took a big part of me with you. I will always miss and love you always and forever.
Mommy and Dad: Son, you made us laugh, you made us cry, you made us proud of the Family Man you had become. We will miss “Hey Dad, My Mommy” each and every day.
Save a spot for us because we will see you and wrap our arms around you again.
Love always and Forever, Dad and your Mommy XOXO

Special Poem written by Simon Streeton (AKA Skalla) – dear friend of Craig’s:
The world of COD is a smaller place now one of the greats has gone.
One less person to play the game, one less to log on.
He’s captured his last radio, he’s blown his final base.
There’s a hole now at the table and no one to take his place.
And then he fought his final boss, the old man with the scythe.
No one ever wins that one. No one comes out alive.
He’s gone, but not forgotten. Too many memories to part.
Good times were had by one and all. We keep him in our hearts.
And when he gets to the Pearly Gates, and St. Peter checks the slate.
He’ll ask Kaos “what have you done why shouldn’t I make you wait?”
Then Kaos he will stand up straight and bash him in the face!
And then he’ll say “now listen bud this is my rightful place.”
“I’ve killed more players than anyone else, I’ve amassed a massive score.
Players trembled at my name, and they wanted me in their corps.”
“I know every inch of every map and where to find the mark.
I’m an expert in every weapon type, I’m the sodding benchmark”!
Then he’ll stroll right through the gates straight into the blinding glare.
He’s played his last for this lifetime, unless, and we can but hope, they’ve got COD UO up there!
Those who knew Craig, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.
RIP – We LOVE and MISS you so much XOXO
