Craig and I were good friends.  He lived above the tracks in Wilson Lane near Orville Johnson and Tom Grimm.  We all rode our bikes and played together.  We had many adventures in the canal near his home and in the Weber River just before it meets the Ogden River.  Both Orville and Craig have passed away and I often think of them and the good times we had growing up on Wilson Lane.  After high school we lost contact and the next thing I know I am reading his obituary.
