He worked for GM Assembly in Janesville, WI, and did a brief stint with the Air Force, and, then, returned to GM as a line supervisor for a total of 15 years of service.
He and his family moved to Orfordville, WI, and for about 5 years he had his own body shop there. Then the family moved to Indiana, and he worked for Pacesetter Corp and 84 Lumber yards in Indiana and Michigan. As he matured, he found his taste for the nomadic sales routes waning and starting working at Home Depot in Michigan, Madison, WI, and finally Tucson, AZ, where he was the "Pro Desk" guru. He retired due to his health in September of 2011. Craig married Sharon Gorman in 1968, and later marriages were to Julie Buck of Janesville, and Melissa Kempton of Michigan
