Craig was born Dec. 5, 1951 to Mary Sue and Lowell McMullin in Fort Worth. Craig was proud to be a native "Ft.Worthian." He became a Christian as a young child and grew up in the former Rosemont Park Baptist Church and remained in contact with many friends over the years. He graduated from Paschal High School and as a teen moved to Travis Avenue Baptist Church, where he was active in TAB Singers. He had fond memories of his travels and friendships through TABS. In 1978, he married Ann who he met through friends at the Seminary and North Fort Worth Baptist Church. After their marriage, Craig and Ann moved to southwest Fort Worth and became active at South Hills Baptist Church. It was there that Craig was ordained as a deacon. In 1988, their pastor, Walter Reid helped them adopt their son Michael, the pride of his father's life. Through his church involvement and work with churches at Cargill Associates, Craig has many friends at churches in Fort Worth and across the nation. He will be remembered for his great sense of humor and his gift of friendship and caring. His jokes and comments will be sorely missed but we know that he will be waiting with a big hug for the rest of us to join him. He has already hugged his father, Lowell McMullin, who preceded him in death in 1984. He will be remembered as a wonderful husband, father and son.
