Craig Irwin Baron, 60, of University Heights, died suddenly on Nov. 30, 2019. Craig was born Nov. 21, 1959, in Cleveland.

Beloved son of Lois and Russell Baron of Cleveland Heights and brother of Hallie Baron of San Francisco, predeceased by brothers Joshua and Stephen Baron.

He was wacky, funny and curmudgeonly; an ardent socialist/anarchist; an avid antique gun collector; a lover of all animals, especially cats; a war historian; a lover of mystery novels; a wannabe Ramones guitarist; an avid gardener and watcher of birds; and a great friend and wonderful brother, son, nephew and cousin.

He will be sorely missed and the world will be a little quieter, sadder and lonelier without him.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

To honor his memory, please consider making a donation to the Geauga Humane Society’s Rescue Village.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Baron family.

Arrangements under the direction of Berkowitz-Kumin-Bookatz Memorial Chapel. 216-932-7900.
