Dan Dan Craig

Mantachie- Daniel Ray Craig the beloved and self-proclaimed “legend” was found dead on February 3, 2024, following an accidental drowning. Daniel, commonly called “Dan Dan” by his friends and family, was one-of-a-kind. He was born July 27, 1992, in New Albany to Rickey Hallmark and Nora Craig. Although he was far from perfect, his love for his family was second to none, and he had an inept ability to brighten even the worst moment.  Dan Dan for the past five years was with the “190 gang” at Gibson Corrugated as a lead machine operator of the 190. In his free time, he enjoyed tinkering on cars. Dan Dan was often selfless and put others above himself and would give anyone the shirt off his back to help in times of need. In the summer of 2020, he married Andrea Finley, they together have share highs and lows, but both have found true joy in their children. Dan Dan loved Christmas so he could see the pure happiness through his children’s eyes.  

Dan Dan is survived by his wife of 4 years, Andrea Craig; four children, Bradley Craig, Aden Smith, Isabella Finley, and Levi Emison; siblings, Bethany, Rickey, Buddy, and Melena; and a host of nieces and nephews. 

He was preceded by his parents.
