JAMES “CRAIG” CUDMORE
May 4, 1957 – June 17, 2019
Peacefully, after a long battle with cancer, Craig made his last long haul trip.
He is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Gail; children, Shaina (Darryl), the light of his life, grandson, Talon; Calen (Alyssa), grand-puppy, Niera; and Tina; siblings, Donna (Bill), Bill, and Elaine (Dave); mother-in-law, Kitty; his brother/sister-in-law’s, numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Ruth and Harvey; father-in-law, John; brother-in-law, Barry; and nephew, Derek.
Trucking was Craig’s life and working hard was the only thing he knew how to do. He worked for Gardewine for over 35 years where he met many long-time friends. He was the recipient of the Manitoba Trucker of the Year award in 2007 and was a strong role model to many in the field. Having a clean truck and trailer was of utmost importance to him. Craig had a big heart which meant family and friends were his world. The unwavering love he had for his wife, children and grandson was undeniable. Craig spent a lot of his time fussing over his yard, tinkering with older combines, chatting with good friends over coffee and camping whenever possible. Helping his children anyway he could, was always his number one priority.
Celebration of Life service will be held at the Charleswood United Church, 4820 Roblin Blvd., Winnipeg, MB on Friday, June 28, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. Luncheon will follow in the Van Roon Community Hall (same location). Private family interment will be held at a later date.
We would like to thank CancerCare Manitoba at St. Boniface Hospital for all of their compassionate care over the years, along with, WRHA Palliative Care Program’s care for the last couple of weeks.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in Craig’s honour to CancerCare Manitoba.
