Early Saturday morning, Friend of Zenith and gym photographer Craig Naumec passed away after complications from a recent surgery.

Craig’s skill as a photographer and videographer was eclipsed only by the vast reserves of love and care he had in his heart for others. Craig and I met through our wives, and bonded through the love of these two amazing women, a history of childhood illness and the joy of grilling meat. Craig was a part of the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp from the very beginning and volunteered vast amounts of time and energy to the kids there.

There are a lot of people with a big hole in their hearts right now, so please keep his wife Mary, the Brady & Naumec families and his extended Hole in the Wall family in your hearts, minds and prayers. Calling hours will be on Sunday from 12-6 at Potter Funeral Home in Willimantic. The funeral will be held Monday at First United Methodist Church of Mansfield at 10:00 followed by a reception at the Windham Club in North Windham. As such, there will be no 9:30AM FIT class on Monday the 15th.

Rest well, my friend.
