In Remembrance

AIA Akron Members-

It is with extreme sorrow we share news of the passing of Craig Thompson, AIA.

Born in Manassas, VA, Craig was a resident of Cuyahoga Falls and was the owner of Craig Thompson Architecture. A 1991 graduate of Stow High School, he earned his undergraduate degree in architecture from Kent State University. Craig had a strong work ethic and was a brilliant designer. He studied and became a registered architect. Craigtook great pride in establishing his own firm in order to bring modern architecture to northeast Ohio. His experience included Jamaica, Miami (FL), Ft. Lauderdale, and San Francisco.

Our hearts go out to Craig‘s family in the face of this tragic loss.
