Kraig was a good person. He and Donna helped me through a dark time. His love for the outdoors, four wheel driving, and motorcycles was deep: But even deeper still was his love of family and God.

Kraig's kindness and compassion for others will be remembered and honored as part of his grand legacy. Easy to connect with, you could share anything with Kraig and know that he kept it in confidence. Trustworthy, loving, and kind. A gentle man with giant heart! I'll miss him.

I'm honored and blessed to have known Kraig and all the Yaseen's, and absolutely heartbroken to hear of his passing. The world is a better place for Kraig's time on the planet - what a fun, smart, creative, loving man devoted deeply to God, his family and friends. His legacy lives on in his beautiful family, sweet pups, and all his super cool signs. He is deeply missed, but not gone, just gone on ahead...
