Craig Anthony Birdwell 38 passed away in the early morning hours of January 14th, 2021 after complications from the Sugar Toxin that lead to a career long battle with the infamous criminal Type 1 Diabetes.

Civilians will recognize him as Rockman and thank him for his years of rocking out and making people laugh.

His family only knew him as a musician, an electric spark that could fill a room with a smile that was infectious and a style all his own. Craig was known for his entertaining stories that were usually wildly inappropriate and his abundance of useless knowledge.

He is survived by his father Robert Birdwell; wife Valerie Kast- Birdwell separated, step-daughter Shirley Eisele and daughters Beverly and Payton Birdwell who will grow up to avenge their fathers untimely demise; brothers Chris(Lauren) Birdwell, Jeff (Annunziata) Birdwell, Jon Birdwell( fiancé Sabrina); nieces and nephews Nathan, Lucian, Jayden, Goodric, Sophia, Athena, Dexter.

Bloomingdale, IL 60108. Limited room rates are available at $69 a night under Craig Birdwell’s Memorial if you’d like to stay at the hotel for the event.
