He was born on July 11, 1947 in Dayton, Ohio and spent an active, exuberant childhood in Baltimore, Maryland; Los Angeles and Los Altos, California.
Craig attended the Cupertino district schools, but graduated from high school at Dunn Academy in southern California. He attended University of Pacific then served in the U.S. Navy. Upon his release he returned to Los Altos. Later he moved to Yuba City, Ca, where he lived for many years.
He is survived by his mother, Jean C. Brandon, his father, Joseph W. Brandon of Los Altos and three siblings: Peter C. Brandon of Boulder Creek, Beth Sczuka of Santa Cruz and Martha Brandon Harbist of Granite Bay, CA. There are two nieces, Sophie Harbist and Robin Brandon and one nephew, Peter Harbist.
Craig’s intelligence, compassion and sense of humor will be sorely missed.
