Craig L. Burrier, 57


Craig L. Burrier, 57, of 413 Main St., Bowerston, died suddenly early Monday morning, June 18, 2018, in Trinity Hospital Twin City in Dennison after becoming ill in his home.

He was currently employed as a truck driver for Carroll Asphalt and Stone Company in Carrollton, where he had worked since 2009.

Born June 17, 1961, in Coshocton, he was the son of Constance Mae Donley Burrier of Amsterdam, and the late Harold Lavern “Charlie” Burrier. In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by a sister, Christi Renee Miller.

He attended New Life Center Ministries at Barnhill and was someone who walked the path of his faith through his attitudes and deeds. Craig was a great friend who could be counted on to listen and provide advice and was described as someone who “knew that we possess two ears and one mouth”. He was a very kind and patient man who was remarkably devoted to his family, and he showed that love and dedication by checking on them with regularity. Craig was a fan of NASCAR and was very adept at the hobby of “couponing”.

In addition to his mother, Constance Burrier, he is survived by his wife, Misty Dawn Mullins Burrier, whom he married March 5, 2011; a daughter, Arista Burrier and her companion, Stefan “Gage” Orwick; a son, Sethin Burrier; a step-daughter, Mrs. Santana (Logan) Murral; two step-sons, Dillon Best and Robby Levengood; three sisters, Mrs. Cathy (Steve) Kinney of Harlem Springs, Corena Barstow of Amsterdam and Mrs. Cara (John) Borland of Augusta; two granddaughters, Rielle and Daisy Murral; and a large family of nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be conducted Saturday, June 22, at 4 p.m. in Leesville United Methodist Church, 90 Market St., Leesville, with Pastor Fred Battles officiating. Calling hours will be held Saturday prior to the funeral service beginning at 1 p.m. in the church. Baxter-Gardner Funeral Home in Sherrodsville is handling arrangements.
