Obituary

Craig A Budzinski age 61 of Toledo, Ohio passed away peacefully in the arms of his wife on Wednesday, January 11, 2023, at Hospice of Northwest Ohio-Toledo. Craig was a 1978 graduate of Clay High School and went on to receive his Associate's Degree in Business. He was a car guy. Craig worked in various positions for auto parts supply companies but to anyone who knew him he was the go-to for car knowledge. Craig was a humble honorable person who would do anything for anyone without expecting anything in return. That is how he lived his life he was generous with his time and knowledge. Craig mentored several young men sharing everything he knew. Even when Craig was battling cancer, he purchased AAA memberships for family worrying about who would help them with their cars if he wasn’t there to help. This is just how Craig loved.

Craig is survived by his loving wife Amy O’Connor Budzinski; son Cody Allen (Lelia Valle) Budzinski; daughters Ashley (Carlos) Pecina and Abby Sullivan; mother Sara Curns; grandchildren Luke, Charley, Gabby, Mia, Courtney, Cali, Carter, and Kameron; brothers Douglas, Danny, David, Todd, Scott Curns; sister Candice (Larry) Miller; and many nieces and nephews.
