Donald R. Craig, age 82, of Willoughby Hills, passed away September 6, 2020, at Cleveland Clinic Hillcrest Hospital. He was born on October 12, 1937, in Bellaire, OH.
After leaving Ohio, he lived and worked all over the country before settling back to Cleveland, Ohio, to a beloved career as a computer programmer. Mr. Craig wielded his coding and debugging skills for other companies before starting his own business, which he ran until his retirement when we went to live with his brothers until their deaths.
He was an avid reader of archeology and science, loved classical music, art, cooking, and architecture, and remained an ardent Cleveland Browns fan. As an opera lover, Mr. Craig was a long-time supporter of the Metropolitan Opera.
Survivors include his niece Lisa Craig; and nephew Bryan (Myla Goldman) Craig; great-niece and nephew Rowen and Greta. He was preceded in death by his parents Waldo and Elizabeth Craig and brothers William Craig and Dale Craig.
