Craig P. Sheldrick of Benton City, known by some as "Jazzman", passed away Thursday, October 18, 2012 at age 61. He is preceded in death by his mother, Helen and father, Lynn. He was born on June 24th, 1951 in San Raphael, CA, served in the armed forces and was a Vietnam vet. He was a member of the Retro Riders Vintage Motorcycle Club as well as the National Moto Guzzi Owners Club. One of his biggest passions was restoring and riding his Moto Guzzi Ambarado which he rode to multiple rallies during the summer, including one in Bodega Bay, CA this year. He lived to ride and had been across the country multiple times. If you were to show up at his place, you'd be treated to an awesome cup of coffee and great conversation and maybe if you were lucky a bowl of his famous 'Jumbo'! He loved to restore and play bass guitars and could drum along with just about anything usually some SRV, CCR or anything Blues! He is survived by his daughter April O'Meara, granddaughter Eliana, his best friend and significant other Lori El-Hajj, as well as many many friends.
