Craig Donald Stanton Born 3/17/1972 – Died 10/6/2021 In his short time with us, he touched the hearts of so many people. Craig Stanton, 49, was born in Racine, WI, and passed away peacefully in his sleep on October 6, 2021, in Phoenix, AZ, after a long battle with complications from diabetes and kidney disease surrounded by his family and friends. Craig had a long career at Ewing Irrigation in various positions from warehouse store manager to senior purchaser. He owned his dream car, a 1981 Jeep Scrambler, that was in the process of being restored. He had many pets from fish to ferrets to dogs that acted like farm animals but he loved his dogs Max, Moo, and Gwendolyn and cats Merlin and Reta. He enjoyed good food and cooking with his secret recipes for lasagna and baked beans. He also enjoyed PC gaming to mobile apps. He was always in a guild with his friends and played Dungeons & Dragons on the weekends with his closest friends and family. Craig is survived by his daughter Cassandra Stanton, mother Sherri Noha and stepdad John, father Don Stanton and stepmom Lori, siblings Chad Noha, Nicolle Mueller, and James McCoy, nephews Austin Noha, and Jase Mueller, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. His wishes were to be cremated and buried under multiple fruit trees so he can provide for his family in the future. He will be missed, but loved always. A celebration of life for Craig is being planned and will be held in the future.
