He loved four-wheeling, camping, hunting, snowmobiling, and the outdoors. Craig was an elder in the Belmont 1st Ward and served with the Cub Scouts.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara; children, Angela (Tyson) Jensen, Brian (Kristina) Starr, Ryan Starr, and Zachary Starr; three grandchildren, Hunter, Hurley, and Damian; his mother and stepfather, Berneice and Art Peabody; his father and stepmother, Lanny and Arlene Starr; ten half-brothers and sisters, Richelle, Stephanie, Angie, Gary Allen, Wendy, James, Jason, Jeff, Justin, and Darren; three stepbrothers, Troy, Danny, and Bill; and one stepsister, Alice.
