Craig Roger ATTERBURY

ATTERBURY

Craig Roger Atterbury died suddenly on May 15, 2011 at the age of 21 years. He was born on April 23, 1990, Easter Sunday. He went home from the hospital with Mom and Dad to the Hodgson farm outside of Bruderhiem, where they lived for 1.5 years before moving to Edmonton with his Mom and Uncle Duke. They stayed in Edmonton where Craig’s brother Daniel joined them in July of 1992. The most enjoyable thing Craig found to do growing up was to take his toys apart and make them all bigger and faster. This started when Craig and Daniel would build Lego trucks. Even the bikes he was given as a child would be taken apart, painted black and bigger tires put on! In 2003 they moved to Rochon Sands. Craig and Daniel saved up their money and bought pocket motor bikes…Craig’s lasted just a few months, then… you guessed it, they then took parts from Craig’s to make Daniel’s better. Craig worked for his Uncle Tony at All-Star Drilling for a summer he also spent many summers with his Auntie Leasyl and Uncle Wes working on the farm. Camping was something Craig enjoyed with his whole family as well as with friends, whether at the lake with Mom, Dan and Uncle Duke, Auntie Andrea and Ty, or stuck in a farmers field with his friends. This boy had more trucks in his time than farmers had patience for the ruts he left in their fields. Craig went to school in Edmonton until grade ten and then went on to graduate from High School at William E. Hay Composite High school in Stettler in 2008. He worked at Lube Experts along side his brother Daniel for a few years then was off to bigger and better things again. Craig moved to Bon Accord in 2010 where he worked for a short time as a carpenter. Wood? NOT A CHANCE! He finally got his dream job at L.A. Customs working on what he loved most, sleds and better yet trucks! When Craig would phone or come home he couldn’t talk enough about his job working with Jesse. Craig always had one of those smiles that was mischievous, you never knew what he was going to do next. Craig will be missed and loved by all those he has left behind. To all the early mornings and late nights, driving on and off-road, from a baby to a grown man you will be missed in all your stages of life. Taken to fast! Taken too soon! Remember “GO BIG or GO HOME!!” or just plain old “Git-R-Dun”!! A Memorial Service to commemorate Craig’s life was held at the Stettler Agri-Plex on Thursday, May 19, 2011 at 2:30 P.M. with the Rev. Susan Bowyer officiating.
