Obituary: Craig Owen Reasoner

Craig Owen Reasoner, 59, passed away in the presence of his family on Jan. 1, 2011, at his home in Carson City after an exhausting battle with cancer. Craig, the youngest of three children, was born on Aug. 25, 1951, in Albany, Calif., to Steve and Mary Reasoner. Craig grew up in Martinez, Calif. and. in 1969, graduated from Olympic High School in Concord, Calif.

In 1976, Craig met and fell in love with Rebecca Johnson; they married Aug. 19, 1978, in Reno. In 1983 Craig and Rebecca relocated to Carson City to be closer to Rebecca's parents and try something new. From 1983 to 2010, Craig worked and excelled in various occupations, but none he enjoyed more than his latest venture with Snap-On Tools. During his time at Snap-On he had the privilege to meet and work with several great and caring people.

Although we'll all have our own fond memories of Craig, I think we will all remember what he was about, his dry sense of humor, his loyalty, his work ethic, his concern for others, and above all, his desire to always overcome whatever obstacle was put in front of him, he has done it all his life.

Craig is survived by his loving wife Rebecca, his three children, Michele, Robby, and Nicci, his three grandchildren, Ashley, Lexy, and Leo, his father Steve, sister Donna, and brother Steve. He is further survived by many other relatives and close family friends.

There will be a memorial service held for Craig's passing at a date and time yet to be determined.
