I saw this title, and I recognized the name. But for a minute or two I didn't know why. Then I remembered my early years in Ocean City as a boy. Captain Craig was a giant of a man whose life was built on service.

I met him many times in the early morning, when he was supervising the cleaning of the beach and the set-ups for the days' beach patrol, and I was setting out to sell my newspapers for the day.

Tens of thousands of people will miss and long remember the fine service of Captain Craig.
