Craig L. Rainey, 62, formerly of Hanover, PA, passed away on Monday, January 16, 2023 in his residence in Etters, PA.

He loved spending time with his Life Partner, Sharon Rapak especially when they would take rides on his Kawasaki Side by Side. He enjoyed working around the house and in the yard and found great pleasure in doing his own home improvements. More recently, he helped deliver a litter of kittens and enjoyed every minute of it.
