Obituary For Gerald Craig Lilly

July 4, 1956 – July 18, 2021

Craig was born in Vancouver, BC on July 4th 1956 and passed away with his family at his side on July 18th 2021 at the age of 65 years. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 39 years, Kathy Lilly, along with his children Ron (Amanda), Brent (Audrea), Krissy (Jamie) and all his family and friends. He was also a proud papa to his grandchildren Isabella, Avery and Maci.

Craig was a devoted family man and was always the life of the party, he was very adventurous especially with his Harley, travelling all over with his wife and friends. Craig was also red seal in both auto body and electrical and was the jack of all trades. In his spare time, you would find him down at his shop working on his 1956 truck with his son Brent, camping, swimming in any water he could find, dancing and just loving life.

Nothing made him happier than seeing his kids succeed and grandchildren happy. He will be missed immensely by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff members of the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital in Grande Prairie, Shelby, Tyra, Bianca (5 North) and a special thanks to Dr. Van Tonder for all his care and dedication.

An open house style celebration of life will be held at the Lilly residence on Saturday August 14th at 3:00pm.

Care entrusted to Bear Creek Funeral Home 780-830-7742 www.bearcreekfuneral.com
