Edward Craig Bickle

Edward “Craig” Bickle

March 8, 1965 – July 21, 2011

After a lengthy battle with depression our beloved son, brother, and uncle passed away suddenly July 21, 2011.

Craig lived his entire life in Courtenay, B.C. and took a major role in the publishing of newspapers all over the Comox Valley. His great passion in life was drag racing his yellow 1969 Camaro “6028” S/ST. Craig travelled near and far to participate in the N.H.R.A. Street Series and won an abundance of trophies on his journey. He was very proud of these achievements, especially his “Wally”.

Craig will be remembered as a kind-hearted man who always gave generously to those who were less fortunate. He was known for his witty sense of humour and has left his loved ones with lasting memories.

He was predeceased by his father Philip Edward Bickle and grandparents Ed and Helen Bickle and Heather McClary. He is survived by his mother Cheryl, sister Tracy Ellis (Howie) of Campbell River, niece and nephew Kali and Brandon Ellis, aunts Sandra Gallaway (Bill) of Courtenay and Barry Anne Bury (Richard) of Prince Rupert, his love (Sheri Mclean), cousins, and his many racing buddies. Craig will be deeply missed and forever in our hearts.

We invite those who loved Craig to his memorial service to be held on Friday, July 29 at 2 pm at Piercy’s Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made in memory of Craig Bickle to the Archie Courtnall Center, 1952 Bay St., Victoria, BC V8R 1J8.
