September 22, 1971 - October 15, 2009
Malorzo, DDS, Craig Thomas Of Euless, Texas passed peacefully into the hands of the Lord on October 15, 2009 after a long and courageous fight with cancer. Craig was a kind, sincere and devoted husband, father, brother and friend whose smiling face brought joy to those he touched. Craig was born on September 22, 1971 in Cleveland, Ohio, but he considered himself a Texan after moving to Texas when he was nine years old. Craig graduated from Cistercian Preparatory School, Irving, Texas in 1990. He received his B.S. from Texas A&M in 1994 and was in the first class to graduate from the Baylor College of Dentistry of Texas A&M University in 2000, where he was awarded the Outstanding Endodontics Award. After graduation, he worked in several offices before opening his own family dentistry practice in Colleyville in 2002. He was forced to discontinue practicing dentistry after being diagnosed with cancer. Married in 2000, Craig is survived by his wonderful wife, Emily and his daughter, Ava, whom he affectionately referred to as “my little Ava”, his parents Catherine and Thomas Malorzo, his sisters Amy and Mary and his brother Tom, Jr. (“T.j.”).
