Saturday memorial set for Sky

From his family's submitted obituary:
A memorial service is planned for Saturday, June 2nd at 1:00 pm with visitation immediately following at Lord and Stephens, WEST. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Craig Hertwig, "The Sky Spirit Award" to be given to a UGA student. The fund is at the Oconee State Bank, PO Box 205, Watkinsville, Georgia 30677 or can be dropped off at any Oconee State Bank. Lord and Stephens, WEST, is in charge of arrangements.
The Athletic Department also has a nice announcement up, with some comments from Coach Dooley:
"Because of his size, he was not ready to play as a freshman and we redshirted him," Dooley said. "One of the things I remember most about Craig is how big a fan he was during that season he redshirted. He loved to get in the stands with the students and cheer for the team. I don't know if I ever had a player who was as big of a fan as Craig. He matured and became a great player – an All-American – played professionally and came back to Athens. He always continued his support of Georgia football and all Georgia sports in that social way. He was so well known all over Athens and will be missed."
