He was an adventurous man with many passions and hobbies, some of which included sailing, diving, and playing the drums. He was a loyal and compassionate partner to his spouse Sonia, as well as an incredible father to their daughter Sasha.

Aside from being survived by his partner Sonia and daughter Sasha, Craig also leaves behind his mother Jean Smalley, and brother Steve Smalley.

A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, July 16, 2022, at 10:00 AM, at St. Charles Garnier Parish, 3645 Benvoulin Rd, Kelowna, BC. A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later time.
