Craig S. Riggle, 58 of Cedar Springs, was ushered into the presence of his Heavenly Father on Sunday, November 18, 2012. Craig was a 1973 graduate of Cedar Springs High School. His love of anything automotive led him to seek employment at Hough’s Gulf Station, Rowland Bros Automotive, Verwys Auto Parts, Ed’s Auto Body and eventually to Auto Die in Grand Rapids where he became a die barber. His last employment was at Saturn Tire in Cedar Springs. In 2003 after suffering a heart attack and subsequent seizure disorder, he was forced to resign from the everyday work force. Craig was preceded in death by his father, Howard “Slim” Riggle in 1981; brother-in-law, Robert F. Eary in 1999; and a niece, Piper Gates in 2012. He is survived by his mother, Janet L. Riggle of Cedar Springs; twin brother, H. David (Cyndi) Riggle of Cedar Springs; three sisters, LeeAnn Eary of Boyne City, Debbi (Lohryn) Gates of Howard City, Terri L. Riggle of Cedar Springs; uncle, Charles (Mary) Crosby of Marshall; many nieces and nephews. Craig’s family wishes to express their sincere thanks to the folks at Sue’s Kountry Kitchen and Kelly’s Restaurant for the years of help and care that they provided him as he continued to suffer under the burden of his seizure disorder. The family will greet friends Friday, Nov. 30 from 1:00 pm until time of service at 3:00 pm at the United Methodist Church, Cedar Springs. Pastors Chad Wight and Tony Karns officiating.
