2022-10-28

Robert Craig, 84 of Fernandina Beach, passed away on Friday, October 28, 2022 with his wife Sandra Craig by his side.

Robert was born in 1938 to Garnet and Roberta Craig in the Tennessee-Georgia border town of McCaysville, Georgia as the middle child with two sisters Jean and Nola. He finished his formal High School education at Rabun Gap-Nacoochee in Rabun Gap, Georgia.

In 1960 he moved to Fernandina Beach, Florida and started his career at Container Corporation, currently called WestRock. He was employed for 38 years with the only exception being to answer the call of his country to serve overseas in the U.S. Army.

Upon his return, he got his college education at Luther Rice Seminary and preached Gods Holy Word as a Southern Baptist minister and officiated for many weddings, funerals and ceremonies during his calling.

Robert enjoyed working with his hands and became a licensed contractor. He passed on his knowledge as much as possible to his three sons Todd, Lee and Derek Craig.
In 2013 while working for the Nassau County School Board he met and married Sandra Loper and built a home and wonderful life with her.

In 2014 he suffered a major stroke that dictated a full retirement but still continued to serve the Lord and his family to the best of his abilities until the time of his demise.
Now in Heaven, he will be met by many members of his family in Christ to partake of the free gift of God; the eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Funeral services for Mr. Craig will be held Tuesday, November 1, 2022 at 2:00 PM in the Burgess Chapel of Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors with Chaplain Jackie Hayes officiating. The family will receive friends for the hour prior to the service.

He will be laid to rest at Bosque Bello Cemetery.

The family asks donations to be made to Community Hospice of Northeast Florida in his memory.
