Craig Desormeau, age 76 of Syracuse, NY passed away on April 1, 2021 after a long illness. He was born December 20, 1944 in Theresa, N.Y. to Gerald & Margaret Desormeau. He grew up in Theresa and graduated from Alfred State College. A retired civil engineer, he began his career working for the engineering firms O’Brien & Gere and Calocerinos & Spina before opening his own consulting engineer business. For a time he owned a wine-making product store in Syracuse.
Craig loved designing and building, and twice built his own home. He always had a project in the works. Generous with his time and talents, he devoted many hours to helping his daughter & son-in-law remodel fixer-upper homes, and taught them a thing or two about tools and materials and life. He also enjoyed cooking and spending time with his family and was a proud grandfather. He had a kind heart and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He is survived by his daughter, Lori Desormeau (Michael Kelleher); his granddaughter, Emily Kelleher; his mother, Margaret Desormeau; his brother, Gerard Desormeau (Patricia); his nieces Janice Howard and Tammy Robinson. He is also survived by his former spouse, Jane Desormeau. He is predeceased by his father, Gerald Desormeau.
There will be a private memorial at a later date.
