He is preceded in death by: his mother, Johnella Vines, father Fern Craddock, his wife Silvia Craddock, sister Patricia Vines-Scales, three children, Dewayne Arthur Craddock, Patsy DeShone Garner, and Dominique Dorcel Dickson, and many many more family members that welcomed him with open arms to the Heavenly Kingdom.

He also leaves behind a wonderful world filled with his grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other relatives, and friends, to continue on with the stories of his life that he bestowed upon each and every one of them, and for them to never forget his love and his wonderful smile, his words, wisdom, and the man that he was, as he began the names and legacy that will always live on.
