Craig Allan Smith, 63, of Great Falls, Montana passed away on July 2, 2019 surround by loved ones.

One of six children, Craig was born in Murray City, Utah on March 4, 1956 to Edward W. Smith and Belva Rae VanValkenburg Smith. Craig graduated from a trade tech school with a welding certificate. He worked as a fitter and welder for forty-five years in many states across the US, but mostly in Utah and Colorado.
