Craig Postal

CUYAHOGA FALLS - Craig Stephen Postal, 67, earned his wings Monday January 11, 2021. Craig was born in Akron, Ohio on August 9, 1953 to Shirley and Walter Postal.

He was preceded in death by his parents; stepfather, William Conzer; and brother, Clark. He is survived by sister, Carla (Jim) Kraus; nieces, Rachel (Jarrod) Criss, Leah (Noah) Kraus, Hannah (Ben) Herman; nephew, Aaron (Caitlin) Kraus; and numerous great-nieces and nephews.

Craig was a 1971 graduate of Firestone High School. After attending Trans World Travel College, he worked for TWA, which he considered his greatest accomplishment. He took immense pride in his job, and loved the people he worked with and places he visited. He treasured his relationship with his adoring sister and considered her his best friend. The feeling was mutual. Craig also cherished his time spent with his nieces and nephew (each of whom was his favorite).His spunk, sense of humor, and zest for life, even as he confronted difficult health issues, will be deeply missed by all who loved him.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Bath Manor, who so tenderly cared for and loved Craig over the last 22 years.

Private services have taken place and he has been interred at Northlawn Memorial Gardens. A celebration of life will be held at a time more appropriate for social gatherings. Arrangements entrusted to Clifford-Shoemaker Funeral Home and Crematory, 330-928-2147.
