Mr. Ardoin passed away Sunday, March 14, 2021 in Farmerville, La.  Craig was a great friend to many people.  If you were his friend, then he always had your back.  He loved to visit with his friends and family and he loved to tell stories.  He was known to start those stories, head nodding, with “To put it in perspective…”  Craig loved to dance and if there was music he would dance with someone or even by himself.  He had a fondness for children that won’t soon be forgotten.

Craig loved his L.S.U. Tigers, Donald Trump and his Cajun heritage.  Bass fishing, hunting and cooking were favorite pastimes of his.  You may even find him acting as a guide on Lake D’Arbonne.  Craig and his beloved wife, Kristy, had a special bond with each other; from enjoying the good times and walking through the hard times, they never wavered in their love for each other.  He loved his Maltese puppies Baxter, Shiloh and Gypsy and they loved him and will certainly miss him, also.

Mr. Ardoin was preceded in death by his grandparents, Loyd & Hazel Bunyett of St. Landry, La. and Tillman & Susie Ardoin of Turkey Creek, La.
