Van Schoick, Craig S. 47
Born February 9, 1959 in North Carolina, taken home on Saturday, September 16, 2006, due to heart complications. Craig Van Schoick was a high school football and wrestling star, a four-year offensive lineman at VA Tech, and a 24-year Vice President of Whiting-Turner Contracting Co. Craig was an active member and usher at Mission Hills Church in Mission Viejo, CA. He spent most of his free time with either his family or working on his house and backyard. Craig loved nothing more than quiet time alone in his backyard with his new grandson Kyle, of which he was blessed with almost a full year’s time.
A list of Craig’s accomplishments could easily fill this page ten times over; however, greater than the sum of all of these is the impact that Craig made on all of our lives. While Craig had two blood related sons, the amount of people that claim him as their father is astounding. Craig’s office and home doors were always open. His consistent and unconditional love for everyone in his life was a testimony to his character despite the hardships that life offers all of us. Craig is often described as a rock, a comforter, a father figure, faithful, generous, loyal, patient, gentle, kind, and loving. His impact will be felt for generations to come.
Craig is survived by his devoted wife Sheila; loving son Justin and his lovely wife Lindsey, his beloved son Matt; adoring grandson Kyle; beloved brother Scott; beloved sister Sharon, and beloved parents Bob and Mary Van Schoick.
