Craig r. lang passing

Craig R. Lang

It is with shock and great sadness that we must report to you of Craig R. Lang passing on February 19, 2018, in Phoenix, Arizona. Many of us saw Craig recently at the IUFOC in Phoenix and he appeared to be in good health although suffering from a cold.

Jan Harzan spoke to his sister, Mary, and she informed him that he was apparently suffering from a streptococcus bacterial infection that turned septic extremely quickly. Craig went to the ER at 8:30 p.m. that day under his own power and was in a coma by morning. Now he is gone.

This is a big loss for all of us who knew and worked with Craig. Please send your positive thoughts and prayers to Craig’s family.
