George Roy “Mack” Craig, 71 of Glenwood, Iowa passed away March 25, 2024 in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

During harvest season, he would go help bring the crop in with his son-in-law in Ogden, Iowa. His greatest love was spending time with his family. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

    My sincere condolences on the passing of your brother, to Lou and Terry, and the entire Craig family, especially to my dear neighbor, Rachel, at this difficult time. I didn’t know Mack as well as I knew you girls, but remember watching him from childhood, in the neighborhood helping out at your grandparents or Aunt Rachel and Uncle Bill’s, and always had that feeling of familiarity of all being a part of the kinship neighbors felt back then. If I can do anything for you, please reach out.
