Mark Craddock

08-24-1957  -  07-06-2017

Obituary

Mr. Lucian “Mark” Craddock, age 59, of Oakland Park, Florida succumbed to cancer on Thursday, July 6, 2017 with his husband Todd and friend Quincy by his side.

Mark was born on August 24, 1957 in Ironton, Ohio a son to William Lewis and Venus Carol Hazlett Craddock.  After graduating high school and receiving his technical degree, Mark became one of the best travel agents around.  In the beginning of his career Mark traveled extensively which allowed him to be educated in helping others plan their special trips.  He was employed by Travel Leaders where he dedicated himself for 17 years.  When not working you could find Mark playing golf or even shooting pool, as those who knew his pool game knew him to be “The pool shark.”  Through his extensive travel Mark had become an exquisite wine connoisseur and could provide Jeopardy questions before Alex Trebek could even get the answers out. 

Mark leaves to always and forever cherish his memory, his husband, Todd Pritchett Craddock; daughters and son-in-laws, Lindsey and Jerry Nape and Chelsea and Matthew Hanks; 7 grandchildren, Kyle, Rhys, Gauge, Madalyn, Hunter, Dylan, and Rhaygan; brother, Scott Craddock; parents, William and Venus Craddock; 2 brother-in-laws, Jeff Pritchett and Drew Pritchett; mother father-in-law, Linda and Danny Points; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins; also survive. In addition to his husband Todd being his best friend and greatest love they together were the very proud parents of Rocky, Jake and Buffy all 3 of which would bring Mark great joy and essentially became his world. 

A celebration of Marks life will be held on Saturday, July 15, 2017 from Noon until 5pm at the home of friend, 1236 NE 16th Terrace, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33304.

My heartfelt condolences for the loss of your beloved, Mark. Please know that Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ is aware of your pain and they care for you. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) . I pray that you are able to find comfort in God's promise of paradise where there will be no more pain and sorrow (Revelation 21:4,5)  and the many wonderful  memories of your loved one becoming a reality in the future resurrection in paradise.  (Acts 24:15). Please accept my sincere condolences. ( JW.org )

Mark was one of our travel agents (my go to) when I worked in advertising but he became so much more than that. We had some great chats, almost every day, for quite a few years. Rest easy old friend, you will be missed.

I remember my high school years with Mark, especially in band. Mark had a great sense of humor, and was fun to be around. He was a true friend and gentleman, and I will miss him.
