His Colleague Posted a message appreciating Craig. We lost a teammate, compadre, co-worker, and friend. There is a piece of everyone who knew him that has gone missing. This past Friday we lost our Brother In Arms, newsman, Craig Wallebeck.
Craig was an individual who would envelop you in his conversation. His personality commanded his stories and his flair for the unique piqued your attention. I always loved the fact that his quirky sense of humor made me want to join his antics.
From wearing a kilt to expressing himself with a new tattoo, Craig marched to the beat of his drum and I appreciated the impressions he left us. Never one to miss an opportunity to come around the studio or office to say hi, Craigs’ big heart will keep rhythm with my memories of the “Old Walrus” himself. Condolences to Craigs’ family and friends. Rest Easy Craig.
