  1. To Craig Family, I was saddened to read of Gordon\’s passing. I have many memories of our times on the bus into L.A. talking about our families and projects. Craig was a very sharing person and referred to some of his contractor friends that I used in my house projects. We particularly enjoyed discussing his trips to Mexico to purchase ornaments and other for his house. I also worked at ARCO and last saw him while he was President of APL on Cherry Avenue. I am retired from ARCO but still remain in contact with friends from those wonderful days. I will inform my friends of Craig\’s passing. My prayers are with you. Sincerely, John R. Gutierrez
