I’d like to express my sincere condonlences to the McAfee family for your loss. I just learned of Mr. McAfee’s passing last week while out of town.

Mr. McAfee was a GREAT person! I’ve known him for 5 years and although I was only a customer, he treated me like family.

His wife, children and grandchildren were the JOY of his life. He will be missed.

David Espinoza - Nov 17, 2010

I knew Craig for last 5 months only, but that time was enough to feel him as a great person and one of the most remarkable sales person in the industry. His charisma, his way to approach people as a friend made a difference for me.
I will miss you too Craig.

I wish peace for Craig’s family.

David & Pam Akers - Nov 13, 2010

To the McAfee Clan – Pam has known Craig since High School and I have known Craig, and Charlene and Phyllis for much longer. From school and Sharonville Presbyterian.

Our friendship was rekindled about 15 years ago at Jaguar as we stumbled on each other in the showroom. I never got to meet Ginny or his family but it is all he talked about, so I know you in the best way…because you were the most important thing in his life.

Sometimes I would stop by to “see the new cars” but mostly it was an excuse to talk to Craig.

We were completely unaware of his passing until November 12th when I called the dealer and received the shocking news. Pam and I are deeply saddened to lose such a friend and great person.

We give you all our deepest condlences and hold you in our prayers.

To Craig’s family – What a good, decent man. You always pay attention to the persons who become friends with members of your family; and especially those who endure for over 35 years. I was happy that my brother John had the benefit of Mac’s friendship and love. It meant a lot to have such a quality individual want to join with my brothers and friends on our annual golf trip. He, Mark M. and John were spirited in their allegiance to Miami in our competition and I know that formative experience has had great meaning in all of their lives. His future absence at our event will be keenly felt – it will certainly never be the same. We will honor his memory as a friend and sportsman, as we do my father’s, in the coming years.
I extend My sympathy for your sorrow and appreciation for the pleasure of his company.

David Gordon - Oct 25, 2010

Ginny I want to give you my condolences. You and Craig will always be a part of my life. To have known you both for fourteen years and to be able to share our life experiences together will always be very meaningful. I have picture of Craig and my family on my computer desk top when we were at the car show downtown. He was a part of there lives also as they seen that large smile of Craigs everday. Love You and God will see you through put all your trust in him.

Craig and I became friends in kindergarten and spent 13 school years together, including both being drummers in high school band. In recent years, we have met in passing around Montgomery, and caught up a bit at the high school reunion this summer. I will always remember his terrific smile and all the laughs we shared over many years. His passing is a great loss.

Bill Walsh - Oct 22, 2010

Thoughts and Prayers are with Craig and his entire family. Proud to have known Craig, he will be missed.

Casey Head - Oct 22, 2010

I just wanted to say how truly sad I was to learn of Craigs passing. My thoughts and prayers are with Ginny and the rest of Craigs family and friends. Craig was a great man, and a very good friend to me in the short time that I knew him. I can only hope to have as full a life as he did, and also hope to be as good a man as he was.

Walter Ollic - Oct 22, 2010

Ginny,my thoughts and prayers go out to you and the family.I was very saddened to find out about Craig.He will be missed.

Joan Lingardo - Oct 22, 2010

Craig was a true and trusted friend – loving and proud of his family, kind and funny.

Wishing the family strength, hope, and peace – now and in the days ahead.

Dan Bilich - Oct 22, 2010

Dear Ginny and family,

My name is Dan Bilich and I am one of the lucky souls to have shared Craig’s company on the annual Egan fall golf trip. I remember first meeting Mac some twenty-odd years ago on my first trip with the Egans and, although the golf trip is the only time I have ever spent with him, I always enjoyed Mac’s company. He was as good-natured as a person can be while playing golf (the same could not be said for all of us…) and a warm and gregarious companion off the course. My heartfelt condolences to you all on his sudden passing – he will be dearly missed by all of us.

When I heard the news this past week, I sent an e-mail to all in the golf group that included a group picture taken this year as well as a picture of Mac. If you can access his e-mail, you will find the pictures there under the subject line of “Remembering Craig.” If you cannot, I will be happy to e-mail them to any and all of you; simply contact me at dbilich@sbcglobal.net.

Again, my comfort and condolences.

Dan Bilich

Ginny you have been in my thoughts all week. My prayers are with you and your family. Craig was wonderful to work with and had wonderful conversations with him

Jeff Knollman - Oct 22, 2010

Mac,
I love you like a brother and will miss you until me meet again someday. Work is a very quiet place without you here. I miss “Chatty Mac”. Thanks for being such a great friend.

Sid Kuhn - Oct 22, 2010

My Deepest Sympathies to You and Your Family. I am truely sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Sid

Lewis Cain - Oct 22, 2010

High school brought a lot of local neighborhood kids together and a some of us became friends. I had a long talk with Craig at the reunion. He talked about his family life and how happy he was. This seemed at a good time in his life. Not fair to go when kids are mature and you can get the enjoyment of Grand kids to spoil. God must of had a reason to take Craig at this time. My prayers go to family and close friends.

Steve Rosenzweig - Oct 21, 2010

Dear Ginny (and family),
I am with heavy heart for you and your family in this time of need. Please accept my deepest sympathy with the loss of Craig.

Sarah Anderson Bates - Oct 20, 2010

Though the ones we love may leave life as we know it, in our memory, the love we know will always carry on. May those memories bring you comfort until you meet Craig again. We are thinking of you during this difficult time. Our deepest sympathy. – Sarah and Franklin Bates

Dan Egan - Oct 20, 2010

Charles and Dorothy, I am so thankful to be John’s brother. Through John, Craig was a special part of our annual golf trip. The “Miami 3″ of Craig, John and Mark made our annual outing always so memorable. We will miss that slapstick swing and the up beat personality that was “Mac”. I am so thankful to have met and call him a friend. I will miss him.

Norm Liles - Oct 20, 2010

Craig, you always got me caught up with latest Armadillo news when I was around. One of my first linemates on the team when I joined in 1991. Fellow Miami alumni and good friend. I’ll miss you. You were one of the people I thought of when thinking about playing on that team.

Penelope McKeever - Oct 20, 2010

Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.

Debbie Condia Burnette - Oct 20, 2010

Dearest Ginny,
I am so shocked and saddened by your loss. Know that God will hold and embrace you with His loving arms during this terribly shocking time. I love you and you will be in my prayers.
Love,
Cousin Debbie

Cindy (Huggins) Tonseth - Oct 20, 2010

Craig and I only knew each other from our Senior year in high school. And it was great to see him at our 40th reunion this past June. He will be missed and thought about by many of us. He was a wonderful man.

My deepest condolences to his wife and family. Cindy

Jeane Brancazio - Oct 20, 2010

I am deeply saddened by your tragic loss. You and your family are in my prayers.

Amy Hanley - Oct 20, 2010

Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Judi Schneider - Oct 20, 2010

There are no words which can adequately express our sadness in the loss of Craig. Our deepest sympathy is extended to his friends and family. We are so honored to have known him and are devastated that his time with his friends and family has been cut so short. Craig was truly a great man in that he made everyone around him so happy, particularly our good friend, his wife, Ginny. The love they felt for each other was so evident and they seemed to be on a never-ending honeymoon. We are deeply saddened for Ginny and Craig’s families and will pray for love and comfort throughout the difficult days ahead.
Love, Judi and Jim Schneider

Sandy Sharman - Oct 20, 2010

My heart goes out to Ginny and the McAfee family for we have lost one of the best. Craig you are a class act. When you married Ginny you brought Me, Roger, Amber, Julia and Kaylie into your life and family and treated us as your own. We will always love and remember you as a
Father and Grandfather.

I had the pleasure to sit next to craig for 3 years at Jaguar. He was a good friend and would always go out of his way for me. My throughts go out to Jenny and his family. I will miss him he was one of a kind. God Bless Jenny and the Family

John N. Salierno - Oct 20, 2010

I had the pleasure of working with Craig and Ginny at Williams Juguar, Range Rover and Rolls-Royce. Craig was a wonderful person to know,work with and a true family man.His love for his family, customers, friends and fellow workers was wonderful.
Only God has a plan for Craig. We don’t know what it is about and can’t understand his reasoning.
With Deepest Condolences, John Salierno

Becky Bechhold - Oct 20, 2010

Ginny, My heart is broken for you and all of your and Craig’s family. I cannot begin to know what you are feeling, but please know that you have my deepest sympathy and love.

My thought and prayers are with you

Valerie Wilsono - Oct 20, 2010

Craig, do you remember Runyon Elementary? Yes, we go way back, my dear friend. I have pictures to prove it! I moved away after 3rd grade. You know I really had wanted to go there for fourth grade because there was a teacher who did a play every year, I wanted to be a part of that. Oh well, I went to Evendale instead. But I got to know so many other friends…Janice Morgan, Sharon Hodle, Robbie Castle, Kenny Fread and the list goes on. So we started 7th grade and low and behold you, Eddie Stevens, Neal Overbey, Abby Woods along with others were right there! It was like coming home!

Craig, you have gone home, my friend, albeit we wish you would have waited a bit! My prayer is and has been for a long time that one day we all will rejoice together at HOME!

God’s speed, my good friend!

Jenna - Oct 19, 2010

We are deeply saddened to lose you. You brought so much happiness into our lives. You touched everyone around you with your smile and kind heart. You will be greatly missed Uncle Craig.
