It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loved one, Craig Michael Swiderski, who passed away on February 24, 2016 in Brandon, Manitoba. He was predeceased by his Mother and Father. He leaves behind brothers, Rick (Kathy) and Gary, and sister Myrna. Also left to mourn are his niece Kelly (Terry), nephew Keith and his great-niece Hailey. Craig was born and raised in Souris and eventually moved to Brandon where he was employed by the Brandon School Division. Most recently he was employed at J.R. Reid where he worked for 25 years. He loved the kids and always made sure they were happy by telling them stories, making jokes and giving out hugs. Craig loved his coffee and it was never too early to meet someone for a Timmy’s. He was also a loyal fan of NASCAR. Craig loved his family, always caring for his Mom after Dad passed away. He kept in close contact with his brothers and sister and we will all deeply miss our weekend calls with him. A private service was held at the Souris & Glenwood Cemetery on March 2, 2016. In memory of Craig, donations may be made to The Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation.
