March 11, 1970 - March 20, 2021
Craig J Talley, age 51, of Rockwall, TX, was reunited with his parents Clyde and Paula Jean when he went to be with the Lord on March 20, 2021. He was born in Rockwall on March 11, 1970, as the youngest of the three Talley boys. Craig had a contagious joy about him and a sense of humor that made him the life of the party. We will dearly miss his goofiness, his warm smile, and most of all, his signature wink that let you know you were in on the joke. Growing up, Craig enjoyed playing tennis, spending time on Lake Ray Hubbard with his brothers, and fixing up and riding motorcycles. Craig had a long, successful career with a respected general contractor and was a talented woodworker who crafted picture frames and keepsake boxes. Much like his father, Craig loved and respected all things vintage. He collected antique signs and furnishings and had a knack for refinishing old furniture, which was reflected in his beautiful home with his beloved wife of 14 years, Jamie Talley. In addition to his wife Jamie, Craig is survived by his family who he loved dearly: Step-daughters Mackenzie and Jillian Nelson; Step-grandsons: Gage and Gunner Evans; Brothers: Doug Talley and wife Lisa and Chris Talley and wife Shannon; Uncle: Jerry Talley and wife Barbara; Aunt: Beth McClung and husband Ray; Cousins: Darren McWhirter and wife Karen, Jeanna Jackson, Kathy Pena, Robbie McClung, and Elizabeth McClung; Nieces and Nephew: Berkley, Maggie, Avery and Cole Talley; Second Cousins: Shelby McClung, Caroline McClung, and Belamy Gonzalez; Mother-in-law, Carolyn Halloway; and Brother-in-law: Kevin Kolisek. Craig was preceded in death by his loving parents: Paula Jean (Mullins) and Clyde Talley. Craig loved and was loved by so many. Please join the Talley family in remembering him from 5:00 to 7:00 PM on Friday, April 30th, at Rest Haven Funeral Home-Rockwall Location.
