    Bloody hell.

    Always hoped he'd return from his CW exile - sadly not. Was a good bloke to have around.

    RIP to his friends and family.

    Is this CricketWeb's greatest poster in the short history of the forum?

    I was at a meeting tonight and Lindsy told me about his passing. Came home and immediately checked CW to see if anything had been written.

    fmd, what can a bloke say? At times (and some would say alot of times) Craigos and I didn't see eye to eye in the sense that I would take the piss out of him, he would take the piss out of me. What many don't know is that I often spoke to him off forum and we got on really well, so I hope people don't think I harboured any ill feeling towards him. But ****, that means nothing now.

    Honestly it's shocking. In all my dealings with him he was life loving and gentle. Words can not describe how devastating this must be to his family.

    RIP Craigos.

    Has anyone heard of any means where we can donate to the family?

    Hard to know what to say at a time like this. Can't say I knew him well but the tributes in this thread speak for themselves.

    Deepest condolences and best wishes to his friends (whom I am sure quite a number are here) and his family.

    Rest in peace, Craig.

    Didn't know the bloke, but I have seen a few of his posts, which were always a pleasure to read. Really shocking to hear of his passing.

    RIP

    Shocking news.

    Always seemed a good bloke. Remember that famous pic that Joe made of his too.

    Rest In Peace.

    Horrible, horrible news. Hit me in the gut.

    Don't think I ever spoke with him but I've still fond memories of the joking around we got from him. Just a great bloke to have around.

    Upsetting news. RIP.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Starting the reminisce now, Just thinking about all the joke pictures Langers did of his desire to get Craigos's cycling posse, and the good humour he took them in. I'm sure he'd have raised a wry smile if he could at the irony of it, and is probably sat on a cloud cursing the name Hingston as we speak. WAG

    Would never post in obituary threads usually because I do not care most of the time. But you could just tell he was one of the better people around with the way he carried himself around the forums. Was a huge fan and Joe, myself and Craigos had a lot of great banters when he was around. Will be sorely missed.

    Still have this in my sig:

    What do you look like? Pt III

    One of the best moments of his on CW.

    ****ing awful to hear this.

    Judging by the posts on his facebook page, this seemed to have happened quite a while ago.

    Does anyone have a timescale for this or anything?
