Dehen, Wm. Craig, 71, of Grandville, Michigan passed away on 4/19/2023 in Port Charlotte, Florida surrounded by family and friends. Craig was born on 11/22/1951. He will be missed deeply by his loving wife Patricia Dehen, of 52 years.  He leaves behind his daughters, Calley (Troy) Harrington and Becky (Rob) Sperring; grandchildren, Bryson and Jordyn Harrington and Caleb, Nolen, Ezra, Jesse and Veyda Sperring; sisters, Carol A. Dehen (Kyle Kribbet), Margaret Shackelton and Jeanne Thomas. He retired from GM after 30 years.  Craig loved spending the summers at Big Star Lake in Baldwin, MI and winters in Port Charlotte, FL. He loved hanging out with family and friends and “never wanted to miss nothing.” He took a genuine interest in the lives of his girls, grandkids and friends and in a world of texting and technology preferred to call them, often daily, to find out what they’re up to as he loved to always be in the loop. He always had a new joke or story to tell. The family is thankful for the care and support provided by Tidewell Hospice of Port Charlotte and the continued support of so many friends. Did you hear the one about that cat?…..
