January 11, 1983 - May 2, 2014 Our hearts were broken Friday May 2, 2014 when we learned that Craig had passed away from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. He was a wonderful father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend. He will be sorely missed by all of us who were lucky enough to know him during his short life. Craig was born on January 11, 1983 in Bountiful to Steve and Claudia Allen. He graduated from Viewmont High School in 2001. He also attended Weber State University. At age 19 he was called to serve a mission in Seoul, Korea. He married Alyssa Van Wagoner (Rivers) in March of 2003. They were later divorced. Craig was a loving father to Ben (age 10) and Luke (age 6). They were the loves of his life and he spent every minute he could with them. He loved his grandparents and had a special relationship with them. He was so full of life, extremely entertaining, funny and charismatic. He loved his brothers and sister and they in return loved his fun loving personality and antics. When Craig was around he had everyone laughing and enjoying themselves. Through all of his ups and downs those closest to him knew of his big and caring heart. He loved the outdoors, animals, BBQs and fun times with friends and family. He also enjoyed building and carpentry and working with his Dad. Craig was preceded in death by grandparents Jack and Connie Bangerter and grandfather Reese K. Allen. Survived by his children Benjamin Craig Allen, Lukas Jack Allen, his parents Steve and Claudia Allen, sister Diana Allen Andrew, brothers Thomas James Allen and Clark David Allen. Also survived by his grandmother Janice E. Allen and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. We love you Craig more than you can even imagine. Your fun-loving, outgoing personality will be forever missed. Friends and family can visit Thursday, May 8 at Russon Brothers Mortuary, 295 North Main Street, Bountiful, from 6 to 8 pm.
