CRAIG COMSTOCK

Bellefontaine Police Department, Ohio

END OF WATCH: APRIL 10, 2020

CRAIG FELT THE PULL TO BECOME A POLICE OFFICER AND SOON JOINED THE BELLEFONTAINE POLICE DEPARTMENT. DURING HIS ALMOST EIGHTEEN YEARS OF SERVICE, CRAIG WAS CHOSEN BY HIS PEERS AS OFFICER OF THE YEAR IN 2013. THE LAST NINE YEARS OF HIS TENURE WERE SPENT AS A NARCOTICS DETECTIVE. CRAIG WORKED HARD TO KEEP OUR COMMUNITY SAFE. 

CRAIG MARRIED THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE, MICHELE, JUNE 10, 2000. THEY WOULD HAVE CELEBRATED THEIR TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY IN TWO MONTHS. THEY BOTH GRADUATED TOGETHER AND WENT ON THEIR FIRST DATE TWO YEARS AFTER HIGH SCHOOL (THANK TO THEIR MOTHERS). FROM THAT MOMENT ON, THEY HAVE BEEN INSEPARABLE. 

CRAIG WAS A JACK OF ALL TRADE; MR FIX-IT, MR. MUSCLE, THE CAR GUY, BASEBALL COACH AND SO MUCH MORE. HE WAS A STRAIGHT SHOOTER FILLED WITH SARCASM AND WIT. EVERYONE THAT KNEW HIM HAS A FUNNY STORY TO TELL. HE COULD MAKE ANYONE LAUGH. 

ABOVE ALL ELSE, CRAIG WAS A FAMILY MAN. HIS TWO BLESSINGS COLE AND CARISSE WERE HIS WORLD. HE LOVED WATCHING THEM PLAY SPORTS AND NEVER MISSED A GAME. HE WAS SUPPORTIVE AND ENCOURAGED EVERYTHING THEY TRIED. HE TAUGHT HIS KIDS HONESTY, RESPECT, INTEGRITY, MANNERS, AND GRATITUDE. HE ALWAYS TOLD HIS CHILDREN HOW MUCH HE LOVED THEM AND HOW PROUD HE WAS OF THEM. HE WAS THE BEST EXAMPLE OF A DAD.
