Craig was born November 27, 1952 in Sturgis, Michigan the son of the late Leonard and Marie (Butler) Brouse. He graduated from Western Michigan University with an engineering degree. He worked at Atlas Press and Clark Equipment Company before settling at Robert Bosch Corp., in St. Joseph as a Senior Manufacturing Engineer. He enjoyed going to auctions and reproducing replicas of steam powered toys and other antiques.  He was very creative in fabricating tools. There were times instead of going to the tool room at Bosch to have something made, he would go home and make it himself.  It has been said that Craig had a wry sense of humor, and he was uniquely Craig.                               

Survivors include his sister, Pentha “Penny” Lord of Florida; a niece, two nephews, great nephews and a host of friends from work.
