Craig Pendarvis was born November 17, 1959 to Dorthy “Sug” Pendarvis and Willie “Sonny” Norwood. He passed on July 9th, 2017 at his home in Anadarko, Oklahoma. Craig graduated from Anadarko High School, where he met his sweetheart Mila Tomagos. Craig was an employee for 25 years at Delta Faucet, Silver Buffalo Casino, and currently employed at Gold River Casino as a security guard. Craig loved his family especially his wife of 32 years, four girls, and his grandchildren. Craig loved to be with family and friends, play cards “Tonk It Up”. Most of all he loved spending time with his grandchildren. Craig enjoyed eating the Ultimate Feast with a tall glass of Bud Light at Red Lobster. He was a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan and he loved Kobe Bryant. Craig was a hard working loving man who always put his wife and kids first and kept his home open to all.  He was always known to speak his mind in the most comical way.
