Mass of Christian Burial will be 11 a.m. on Thursday, October 7, 2021 at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in St. Stephen for Craig C. Danzl, age 51, of St. Cloud.  Reverend Ronald Weyrens will officiate. Entombment of his cremated remains will take place in the St. Stephen Parish Cemetery Mausoleum.

Visitation will be held from 4-7 p.m. on Wednesday and after 10 a.m. on Thursday, both in the St. Stephen’s Catholic Church.

Craig passed away at the St. Cloud Hospital on September 29, 2021, due to a medical emergency that he was unable to recover from.  Craig's love, Becky, was at his side when God called him home.


Craig was born June 4, 1970 to Jerry and Bev Danzl.  He grew up and resided in St. Cloud his entire life and spent the last 26 years working for MCI Carpet One.


Craig was very passionate about the things he loved; Becky, family and friends, classic country music, and the Minnesota Vikings.  He also enjoyed trips to Nashville, singing, golf, throwing bags, and socializing with friends.  Craig was a warm hug in human form.  He offered love and support to absolutely everyone he knew or met.  Craig was a presence that made you feel safe and comfortable.


Craig was preceded in death by his loving mother, Bev and Becky's parents Bob and Jenny Fiedler.  He adored them all.


Survivors include his dad Jerry and Judy Molitor, his love Becky Fiedler, his 'stepchildren' Tucker, Riley and Kayley Isaacson, his adoring sister Julie (Tim) Danzl-Lage, many nieces, nephews, and countless amounts of friends who thought the world of him.


Craig's smile, his laugh, and his presence will be missed forever.


Craig's family would like to thank the ICU nurses that took extremely good care of him during his time at St. Cloud Hospital.

Sending loving thoughts to Craig's family and friends. Craig will always be remembered as "Country Craig" since he was always passionate about his country music & could name a country song immediately with his vast knowledge of country music. Always inspirational with a heart of gold. My family & friends & I have many pleasant memories of him...traveling to Nashville & Arizona & Vegas or Wisconsin, music concerts, Vikings games at home or at the game, singing music whether it was Elvis or Statler Brothers or Statler Brother's Gospel or varieties of country classic songs, laughing, loving & living life. God has taken another angel home and it has been a blessing to have known Craig & his loving family and friends through many special moments that turned into special memories forever engraved within my heart. Craig's kind & caring personality affected the heart of many people in such a positive way that words cannot express. Craig's wonderlife life memories & music will linger on in our hearts like a beautiful melody of a song. May guardian angels wrap their comforting arms around his family & friends during this challenging time and provide them with comfort & loving memories of a very loving soul. RIP my friend.

Craig had been always pleasant and caring toward me.Craig always joked that he never met a women that could drive a stick shift car with a vodka in one hand and a cigarette in the other.We took Craig and his dad out seeing the scenery in the hills by Dodge and Pinecreek in trempealue county and They always remembered the big cellphone we had and the hugh van with the sliding doors. There was many good days spent listening to country music also. Bev called Craig to be with her way to soon. Rest in piece Craig.

I am shocked to see Craig passed away. He helped us several times with changes to our house and was always eager to go the extra mile when you needed something. His knowledge of which floor, carpet and backsplash looked best together. MCI lost a valuable employee and his family lost a special person. You have my deepest sympathy in losing him. Hope his memories keep your heart alive and help with the days ahead. .
