Craig was born in Oklahoma City, OK. As Craig grew up, he became a star wrestler at the YMCA and then a Regional and State wrestling champion while at Casady High School. He graduated from Casady in 1979. Craig attended the University of Oklahoma where he pledged Delta Tau Delta fraternity and created lifelong friendships and memories. He graduated with his Bachelor of Science degree in Geology in 1984. After working briefly in the Oklahoma oil fields, he returned to OU and received a Master of Business Administration. He accepted his first job with Arthur Andersen which sent him to many cities including Dallas, Miami, Chicago, and Columbia, SC. He joined NationsBank, now Bank of America in 1994. While working on a bank merger in Baltimore, MD he met his wife, Judy. They married on September 21, 1996 in Little Italy, Baltimore. Craig was a Senior Vice President and Associate of Bank of America for 30 years.

Craig was very involved in the lives of his children, from scouting campouts and lacrosse games to daddy-daughter recital dances. He was also involved their Church community of St. Peter Catholic Church where you could see him grilling hot dogs in the early days of the Garden of Eaten. He loved to work in the yard and play golf whenever he had the chance. Craig also loved his family time at their mountain house, The Barn, on Beech Mountain, NC where he taught his child how to snow ski. He participated on the board of the neighborhood Anne Heinig Memorial Park. Craig was always a sensitive and caring man, a mentor to many and his kindness was so obvious to all who knew and loved him. Craig will be tremendously missed.

Hankins & Whittington Funeral Home

At Hankins & Whittington Funeral Service, nestled in the historic heart of Dilworth, we have provided families in the Charlotte area with customizable memorial services for many years. Our services are crafted to honor your loved ones in ways that are both deeply meaningful and healing. Our rich history began in 1946 when Irvin W. Hankins and James B. Whittington took the reins of the Crouch Funeral Home. The growth of our service and the community's support led to our move in March 1963 to the current location—once St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, built in 1930. Our chapel, a cherished historic landmark within the storied Dilworth neighborhood, is renowned for being the only funeral home in Charlotte graced with its own chapel, echoing with decades of history and serenity.

When was a time Craig made you laugh?

Craig was my cousin and I remember growing up with him and he always made me laugh. He was very sincere and had a gentle spirit about him. He will be remembered for his kindness. I’m thankful he is now in a beautiful place and I’m grateful that I will meet him again someday. I can imagine him dancing in heaven right now with Jesus🙏😇 See you soon Craig, Love Alene
