I didn't know Craig very well in high school, but his mom was my 5th grade teacher at Monte Vista. Craig and I became good friends through Gary Harper who lived across the street from the Stones.  During my 2 years attending Phoenix college we had a blast; water skiing, hunting and going to the Red Dog and Mr. Lucky's. Craig was really a piece of work but alot of fun to be around. When I went off to the UofA we lost touch a bit but got together off and on for several years. Craig died unexpectly after routine radiation treatment for what was thought to be cured cancer in his neck. I have many great memories of our time together include Gary Harper and Jim Willey.

Craig was a typical "good guy" hanging with the Loma Linda crowd and a great neighbor. Dave Scott, Curney , and many others have fond memories of him.  I miss ya buddy.

,I knew Craig and his family well, living on the same street growing up.  How tragic his death so young as well as his brother's Dale and his father's.  They are missed.

Craig Stone was a very (and I'm proud to say ) close friend. We did about all there was to do at Loma Linda as far as classmates could.  His family treated me as one of theirs.  They were into guns and took me to Black Mtn,above Sunnyslope, for target practice using their own guns and bullets. I never owned a gun, but they introduced me to them. It was a big tragedy how his father was killed as a Deputy Sheriff and his brother( Phoenix Motorcycle Officer) died.  Then how young Craig was when he passed away.  I could only imagine how the Mother felt. They were all good people and are missed dailey.
