Craig Robinson, Jr. Obituary

Craig Robinson, Jr. “My friends call me sugar” or “shoog” of Nampa, Idaho, died unexpectedly on December 10, 2023, from kidney and heart issues. He was only 51 years old and had so much more life to live. Our family is deeply saddened and shocked by his sudden death. Craig grew up in and lived more than half of his life in Washington State and was thrilled to move to Idaho where he lived out the last quarter of his life and created a life he loved and enjoyed with his family and friends.

Craig was in the insurance business for 29 years and knew his clients well. He valued his clients and thought of many of them as friends. It was his honor to serve and take care of them the way he would want to have his family taken care of.

In addition, Craig served on the Parks and Recreation committee for the Meridian City Council and was very involved in his community. He was a generous man who supported many charities whether donating or providing a space for them to hold fundraisers. In his free time, Craig valued spending time with his family and friends, holding deep conversations with them, and truly taking an interest in who they were. Craig enjoyed exploring the mountains in various ways, traveling and learning the history of different places and cultures, playing games, singing karaoke, and entertaining others. Craig has been a dedicated musician, playing the bass guitar in several bands over his lifetime, but most notably, Rewired in Washington State and until he passed, The Noteables here in the Treasure Valley. Everyone who knew Craig knew all parts of who he was. He is loved by so many who felt seen, known, encouraged, valued, and loved by him through his actions. Despite all this, his family was what he valued most. He was an avid supporter of his wife and children. If he could aid in them making their dreams come true, he did. His passing is a tremendous loss to all who knew him. A favorite quote of his was “To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable.” ― Ludwig van Beethoven. Craig lived his life this way. Our lives will never be the same.

Craig is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of 32 years Shauna, his beloved children Kayla and Caleb, his daughter-in-law Nikki, cousins Michael and Evelyn, and an incredible abundance of friends. We will miss him more than words can say.

In honoring who Craig was, there will be no services. There will be a Celebration of his life to be held on April 27, 2024, at the Rowdy Room.

Contributions in memory of Craig can be made to Nampa Funeral Home or to a program or organization that encourages keeping music alive and available to students in schools.
