With Craig gone, the best band, that I grew up with, is now in heaven. Tom Crawford, Dave Barney, Craig and
the lone (perhaps) survivor, Butch Harmon. "The Ones" were THE fixture in the Tri-State corner in the early 60's
and many a draft card was passed around under the table to get served at Lido's when they played there,
thanks to Steve Pitcher, who actually possessed one. Thanks Steve and thank goddess the barkeep couldn't read.
A toast is in order to all the time that has passed around us - now the elders - once the young rebels.
Bless all you boys - Bruce Springsteen had nothin' on ya ! - back then or now. - Will (B.J.) Brown

My deepest condolences to the summers family. I met Craig at the cage at Salisbury. He was best. We would always talk about hunting and fishing, something we both loved.

Craig, you were the best. I always loved talking to you at the cage at Salisbury. I will miss catching up in the fall about hunting and fishing. I’ll never forget you and the impact you had on me at Salisbury. My deepest condolences to the summers family. Craig was genuinely the best.
