Morris Ernest Craig

June 26, 1951 – May 18, 2021

Unexpectedly on May 18 while working on the farm he loved. Popi, as he became known after having grandchildren, leaves to mourn his wife of 42 years Anita (nee Wysocki) who he adoringly referred to as Mother, children Ashley (Lyndsay) and Dallas (Jonathan), and grandchildren Keaton, Greyson, Aberdeen, and Trafford, as well as his brothers, sisters, and a community of friends and family. He was a great husband and father who made it his life’s goal to take care of his family, and his grandchildren were his pride and joy. He enjoyed taking them for tractor rides and visits to the barn, bringing them surprise gifts, and trading jokes that made you shake your head. He relished getting his hands on a microphone to give a good speech that often left his audience in both laughter and tears. Anyone who had the honour of meeting him knew they were in the presence of greatness. He was the best farmer and proudly produced some of the most unrivaled crops in the Chateauguay Valley. In addition to being an avid curler and golfer, Morris took to spending his winters in Flagler Beach, Florida and became as well-loved a fixture in that community as he was in his hometown of Howick. His friends and family remember him as an honest and caring man who worked hard to build a great farm from nothing and who could be counted on to help others no matter the personal sacrifice required. There are no words to describe how much he will be missed.

With current COVID restrictions, a small private service will be held in his memory. As he was loved by many, those who wish to can attend virtually at on May 24, 2021 @ 10am.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his name can be made to the Riverfield Cemetery Fund.

I hope the knowledge that many others of his friends and family share the burden of his loss will make your grief at least a little easier to bear. With my deep sympathy,

I’m saddened by the unexpected tragic loss of your wonderful husband. One fond memory that I will never forget is dancing with Mo in Flagler Beach and his beaming smile and great dance moves. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Hugs!

Tank Rhonda

My heartfelt sympathies go out to the Craig family in their time of sorrow.
I had the pleasure of being introduced to Morris 4 years ago through mutual friends in Flagler. Even though I only escaped two months of the winter from the northeast he was gracious enough to remember me each winter season there. My ancestral roots originate in Canada and we shared many pleasant conversations. One thing that stood out was the pride he had working his trade in life and his devotion to family.
He will surely be missed by his wide circle of friends in Flagler. I’m sure my sentiments are shared with all your friends at the Beachfront when I say “ Cheers to you my friend “.

Ray Roy, Your fri

My deepest sympathies to the Craig family.

Treasure the memories you hold in your hearts and hold each other close when the pain is unbearable. My thoughts are with with you Dallas. Prayers are with your family.
