Heart Emblem

Craig E. Wiegand Jr., age 5, of Jackson, Michigan passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, December 18, 2019. He was born in Battle Creek on November 27, 2014 and was the adorable son of Mandi Krutsch and Mark Stutler. Craig attended Pirate's Cove Pre-School in Napoleon, MI where he loved to go to school and seeing his friends & "girlfriends".

Craig is survived by his parents; his sisters, Abby Wiegand and Octavia Stutler; his brother, Korbin Wiegand; his grandparents, Tim & Shawn Krutsch, Susan "Gia" Dussia, Mary & Gary Stutler, and Dana Krutsch; two great-grandmas, Norma Krutsch and Karen Brannon; a great-great grandma, Thelma Rogers; and several aunts, uncles and cousins. He was sadly preceded in death by his sister, Kiley Wiegand; his grandma, Elizabeth Wiegand; two great-grandpas, Wes Brannon and Emanuel Krutsch; and a great-great grandpa, Danny Rogers.

Craig truly loved "Life", staying at "Gia's" every other weekend, fishing with "Papa", spending time with his cousins & family, and of course, marshmallows. His favorite color was green and he also enjoyed playing video games with his dad, dinosaurs, building towers with blocks, playing board games & his Tablet; and was truly excited to be a "Big Brother".

The family will receive friends 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., Monday, December 23rd at Farley Estes Dowdle Funeral home & Cremation Care, Battle Creek where funeral services will be held at 3:00 p.m., Monday. Memorials directed to the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor would be appreciated. Personal messages for the family may be placed at
