Raymond Craig Dipo (59) passed away October 27, 2014 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was born September 21, 1955 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Dan Raymond Dipo and Helen Betty Spetsas.

He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served as a temple worker, stake missionary and home teacher.
Craig had many hobbies. His love for electronics led to his anticipation of every new upgrade from VCR’s to telephones and everything in between. He spent many hours recording movies and TV shows, he was particularly fond of The Highlander, X-Files and other sci-fi movies. He was famous for his spaghetti, homemade sugar cookies, his soda fountain machine and his exotic birds.
Craig’s greatest happiness came from seeing his family achieve and succeed. He did all that he could to help them. He had a passion for martial arts and his greatest dream was realized when Mike and Danny earned their black belts. Karate tournaments became family vacations where many memories were made. Craig celebrated all of his children’s accomplishments and was especially happy to see Jen graduate from nursing school. HIs legacy will live on in the hearts of his children and grandchildren. He is loved and will be missed by all those who knew him.
