Craig was predeceased by his parents, William Borland and Shirley Miller; brother, Glen Borland; step-father, Gene Miller; step-brother, Alan Miller; and grandparents, Dora and Harvey Gowin. Craig was born in Calgary on January 25th, 1962 and spent his childhood years in Bow Island and Lethbridge. He met Anita while studying at Lethbridge College. They married on February 16th, 1991 and later moved to Medicine Hat where Craig was employed by Superstore for many years and then more recently at the Medicine Hat Exhibition Grounds. Craig was an avid golfer and loved to spend his free time in the summer on the links. He also had a passion for computers, either building his own or tinkering with their inner workings.
