The Rochester area lost one of it’s best citizens, Craig Charron. He passed away on Tuesday to a battle with cancer. Craig Charron was 42 years old and put up the best fight that he could. Thoughts go out to his family, friends and everyone who knew him. He touched a lot of lives.
From the Amerks:
“It is a real sad day. We all have heavy hearts with the passing of ‘Sharky.” We all knew he was a great player, but more importantly he was an amazing young man,” said Amerks Director of Player Personnel and former teammate Jody Gage. “He will be truly missed. Our thoughts are with Wendy and the four kids. We extend our love and support in this most difficult time.”
In memory of Craig, the Amerks will wear his No. 5 tonight on their helmets when they play the Hamilton Bulldogs. The Amerks will have a pregame tribute to “Sharky” Saturday night. There will be further recognition of his outstanding career at a more appropriate time.
