Orin Dale “Tuck” Craig Jr., 79 of Taylorville, passed away at 1:01 p.m. on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at Decatur Memorial Hospital.

He was born on December 9, 1941 in Danville, the son of Orin Dale Craig Sr. and Gladys (Lloyd-Philips) Craig. He married Bobbie K. Wiles on June 11, 1961 in Danville.

Tuck retired as a Belt Maintenance Boss from Peabody Coal Company Mine #10 after a 30-year career. He was previously a member of the UMWA. He was an avid NASCAR fan and a huge fan of Kyle Larson. Tuck and his family attended many races all across the country. He had a true love of the outdoors; hunting, trapshooting, and especially deep-sea fishing in Florida. Tuck loved the ocean and his time spent in Florida. Most of all he loved spending time with his family, and his dog, Cooper.

He is survived by his wife: Bobbie Craig of Taylorville; children: Todd Craig (Barb) of Taylorville, David Craig Sr. of Florida, and Vickie Craig of Springfield; grandchildren: David “Boo” Craig Jr. (Caitie Dugan) of Ruma, Logan Craig of Taylorville, and Alexis Craig (Brett Whittington) of Florida; great-granddaughter: Madalynn Elaine Whittington; sisters: Pamela Lyons (Daniel, deceased) of Florida and Vickie Stull of Florida; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brother: David “Butch” Craig.

Mr. Craig’s wishes were to be cremated and no services will be held at this time. His family will host a celebration of life at a later date.

McClure Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Taylorville is assisting the family with arrangements. Memories of Tuck, or condolences to his family, may be shared online at
