Craig Weigle, 92, of Scottsdale, AZ died peacefully surrounded by family on Wednesday, November 25th. Craig was born on August 7, 1928 to Leslie Weigle and Lorene McNaughton Weigle in Fremont, Indiana. Craig was one of 3 children and graduated from Fremont High in 1946. He was fascinated by airplanes and flying and got his student pilot’s license in his early 20s, but did not pursue a career in aviation. He started working as a paper boy at the age of 11 and after graduating from high school worked as a diesel operator in the city power plant, and later as a butcher for a local grocery store chain. He began working in the electronics industry for Philco in his mid-20’s and moved to Scottsdale in 1959. He then worked as the manager at Papago Lanes in Scottsdale, and did so again after retiring from trucking. He bought his first truck in 1964 and began working for Mayflower as a long-distance mover. He continued in the moving business with Bekins until 1970, then moved on to become an independent owner-operator hauling freight. His career as a trucker spanned 30 years and he logged some 4 million miles. He was married to Beverly Hageman in 1948 and they had 4 children. His first marriage ended in 1964 and after gaining custody of his children he married Margaret “Marge” Clemens in 1967. Marge and Craig were married for 50 years, until her death in 2017. Craig loved his family and he loved the open road. He is survived by his sister, Sharon Sherman, sons David and John, daughters Susan Mason and Sandra Garrison, and by 9 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, 1 niece and 2 nephews, and 6 of Marge’s grand children and their descendants. A graveside memorial service attended by family will be held at St. Francis cemetery.
