In Memory


I'll never forget the summer with Lorrelle, Donny, and Craig.  Hanging out at jeep bowls and just having a lot of fun.  He was a kind gentleman.  Here's his obituary.

Craig C. Zirkle died suddenly Monday, May 19, 2014 of major coronary failure, at the age of 54.

He was born in Yakima and lived his entire life in the area, and graduated from Eisenhower High School.

Craig was employed by the Washington State Dept. of Transportation for 32 years, most recently in the Engineering Section of the Regional Headquarters Office in Union Gap.

He enjoyed snowmobiles and motorcycles in the woods, fast cars on the road and backyard barbeques: all this with his son Nick, family and friends.

Craig is survived by his son, Nicholas and was preceded in death by his wife, Nancy. Survivors also include his mother, Lu Ann Zirkle of Lacey; sister, Shelley Blevins of Lacey; and nephews, Levi, Shawn, Riley and Connor Blevins.
