IN MEMORY: Floyd “Craig” Nagunst

Floyd “Craig” Nagunst February 22, 1956-May 21, 2020

Floyd “Craig” Nagunst (64) passed away to be with our Lord on May 21, 2020. He was born on February 22, 1956 to Floyd and Glenellen (Willey) Nagunst in Council Bluff, Iowa.

Craig served in the Air Force as an aircraft maintenance technician. After his 17 years of service, he was honorably discharged as a decorated veteran. After his military service, Craig worked in construction. The 15 years before he retired, he was a real estate broker.

Craig was a very gifted person, with the ability to build or fix anything he set his mind to. He used this gift by volunteering many hours on projects for church, the community and for anyone who needed help. He also used this gift to build a home for his wife Brenda and himself. He never used written plans; everything he did he had planned out in his head.




Craig had a big heart. He was always willing to help anyone who needed help, whether it was a building project, plowing snow for someone, helping out those in need with food, clothes, tires for their car or whatever was needed. One thing not many people knew about Craig was that this extended to animals as well.

Craig was a selfless man, it didn’t matter what the situation was; if he could help, he would. He would help people that most wouldn’t consider helping. He wanted to help them have better lives. He was a behind-the-scenes kind of guy. He often gave credit to others, or he would do all the work and wouldn’t expect anything in return; he was happy to just help. His help went beyond physically doing things. He also supported people by helping them achieve their dreams. That was his major motivation for helping others.

Craig loved his family very much; he was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He always put his family’s needs and wants before his own.

Craig was a quiet person, but when he did speak, what he had to say was profound. He made you stop and think. He was also very funny and quick witted. He was the king of one-liners.

Craig was an all-around great man and will be missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing him. Craig is survived by his wife Brenda, his son Brian, four grandchildren, Brian (BJ), Jamie, Jason, and Jaxson, his siblings Rick, Jeff, Ron, and Kathy. He is preceded in death by his parents Floyd and Glenellen, brother Kerry, his youngest son Joshua.
