Roosevelt class of 1983 Craig Phillip Nicholson
Craig Phillip NICHOLSON April 16, 1965 ~ July 11, 2010 Craig Phillip Nicholson, 45 of Kenmore, WA passed away on July 11, 2010 suddenly leaving family and friends in a state of shock and grief. Craig was born and raised in Seattle, and graduated from Roosevelt High School. Craig lived his life to the fullest, recently completing a trip to the Philippines to attend the wedding of a dear friend. During his short life, he gained an appreciation and love for the water after being a commercial fisherman for 12 years. After his tenure as a fisherman, he started his own Construction Company. Craig took great pride in building homes and doing remodels and the pride that he put into each project was apparent in the final result. He had an attention to detail that resulted in outstanding workmanship and quality construction. Craig touched many people's life and was a friend to all, never hesitating to drop everything to help a friend in need. Craig is survived by his loving wife, Lugene of Kenmore, his two daughters, Elena Myers, 28 of Everett and Brittany Nicholson, 12 (his little pumpkin) of Kenmore. He was very active in school projects for his youngest daughter and was very proud of the girls who have grown up to be remarkable young ladies. Craig was known to put the needs of others before his own needs which leave a void with those who are closest. Craig is also survived by his mother, Corinne Paradis Nicholson Duke and predeceased by his father, John Alexander Nicholson. Others left behind to remember and honor Craig are his brothers, Doug (Karen) of Shoreline and their two children, Kia and Andrew, Randall Nicholson (Jessie) of Medina and their son Jack and his sister, Gail of Seattle and her son, Ryan. Craig will also be remembered by Brandon, his nephew in Utah, who was like a son to him. Craig is also survived by a large group of friends who will miss his laughter, his sense of humor and the unique perspective that he brought to life. Farewell my husband, my father, my son, my brother and my friend, you will be greatly missed and we love you deeply. Memorial services are being provided by Acacia funeral home in Lake Forest Park. Services will be off site, however the family urges those who knew Craig to go to the website at Acacia www.acaciafuneralhome.com to speak of the relationship with Craig. These memories will be saved and shared for his daughters.
