Craig C.'s Story
Craig C. Marquis, Sr., 73, of Beverly, passed away Friday, March 24, 2017, at the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers with his family by his side. He was the husband of the late Janice M. (Hincman) Marquis.
Born and raised in Beverly, he was the son of the late Robert A. and Jane F. (Piecewicz) Marquis. Craig was a graduate of St. Mary’s School in Beverly and Beverly Vocational High School. He was one of the finest cabinet makers on the North Shore. He took his craftsmanship to the former Naumkeag Lumber Co. and later to the Jules Gourdeau Architectural Design Company, where he worked for decades before retiring.
Craig had an incredible zest for life and adventure. He was a very funny guy with a dry sense of humor who enjoyed spending time with his family and friends at Lake Ossipee. He loved nature, birds and wildlife. Craig also loved fast cars and was an active member of the North Shore Corvette Club. He was a member of the Danvers Fish & Game Club, where he was an indoor range officer and was a NRA Certified Handgun Instructor. Among his many interests, he was an avid golfer, especially with his brothers. He also enjoyed travelling, skydiving, boating, scuba diving and dancing to the "oldies." He was an amazing friend who touched so many lives and will be missed by so many people.

Marquis, Jr. and his wife, Jude of Epping, N.H.; his brothers, Mike Marquis and his wife, Anne of Newburyport, Bob Marquis and his wife, Ann of Essex; grandchildren, Kelsea and Erika Marquis; and great-grandchildren, Jaelynn and Mia.
