Craig Martin Cleveland died peacefully on October 30, 2023 surrounded by his four children, a lot of love and an abundance of forgiveness. He was 71.
Craig was born in Horseheads, New York to Martha Taylor Brown and William Ernest Cleveland. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the Marines and served in the Vietnam War from 1970-1972. He was employed at the Conneaut Telephone Company for many years before becoming a paramedic. When his children were young, he volunteered many hours coaching at CLYO and was also a member of the St. Mary’s choir. Throughout his years of involvement in Alcoholics Anonymous he provided comfort, support, and friendship to a lot of people in recovery. He lived his life trying his best to help others, despite the fact that he carried a lot of pain and trauma from his years in Vietnam. The multiple myeloma that took his life was most likely caused by agent orange exposure.
In his later years, Craig fulfilled his lifelong dream of living out west by moving to Montana with his wife, Vicki. He found peace, comfort, and joy living just outside of Glacier National Park on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation with his horses and menagerie of animals.
He leaves behind his devoted and loving wife of twenty years, Vicki Cleveland of Browning, Montana, his four children, Taylor (Louise) Cleveland of Conneaut, Ohio, Patrick (Carey) Cleveland of Ithaca, New York, Casey (Niki) Cleveland of Girard, Pennsylvania, and Katie (Tim) Sielschott of Lima, Ohio, nine grandchildren- Isabella Cleveland, Harrison Cleveland, Josh Leggett, Ross White, Jedidiah Cleveland, Kholton Cleveland, Camile Cleveland, Audie Sielschott, and Luisa Sielschott, his brother Dale (Cheryl) Cleveland of Horseheads, New York and his sister Connie (Bruce) Payne of Horseheads, New York.
A private ceremony to spread his ashes will be held at a later date.
