  • Sincere condolences to the Steele family. I worked with Craig at JELD-WEN, Inc. for over 25 years. He was a great guy!!!

  • I met Craig at Winco in 1989 and he became my best friend. Not one time did I ever call him and need something that he didn’t show up to help me and he ended up being a member of my whole family. You may be gone but you will never be forgotten my friend!!

  • I’m so sorry to hear about Craig. I really enjoyed listening to him and the time I spent with him. He was a good man and he will be missed!

  • Sorry for your loss. Craig and I worked together at Wenco for 12 years. We hunted together occasionally, played basketball, and we’re warehouse men in the same window department. He was a great guy!
