Nelson Dailey

Nelson Craig Dailey, 60, of Renick, WV, joined his parents in Heaven on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, surrounded by his dearest family.

Craig lived a full life, touching the lives of everyone he ever met.

His smile was our warmth and his presence was the sunshine that lit our paths daily. His happiness was contagious, and his love can only be compared to that of God himself – unconditional.

Some of Craig's favorite things in this life were WVU football, Greenbrier East sports, iced tea, trains, angel food cake, CDs, tractors, magazines, pumpkins, candles, being together with his family around the table, going to church, and his best friend, Bubba. He loved God, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.

Craig is once again with his parents, Nelson and Charmalea Gibson Dailey, and other loved ones. He will be forever loved and missed greatly.

His survivors include a sister, Debra Ramsey (David) of Renick; nieces, Mary Holson (Doug) of Renick, Sherrie Ramsey (Travis Rose) of Beckley, WV, Margaret Bradley (Ryan) of Renick, and Amanda Lopez (Ruben) of Crawley, WV; great-nieces and great-nephews, Ryah (age eight), Matthew (age four), Mason (age four) Madisyn (age one), Mariana (age 11), Alex (age 6), and another due to arrive June 2019. Also surviving are special extended family members, Susan Reed and Brittney Aldridge.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, November 3, 2018, at Mt. Hermon United Methodist Church in Renick with Pastor Phil Hickman and Pastor Steve Barnett officiating. Burial will follow at Rosewood Cemetery in Lewisburg, WV.
