Craig was born in Seattle, WA, on June, 18, 1970, to Al and Mary Ann Hulten.
He grew up in Olympia and Vancouver, before moving to Spokane with his parents and older sister.
He graduated from Valley Assembly School in 1988 and from Northwest University in Kirkland in 1993, with a major in Biblical Studies.
He loved working with children in the various churches he attended over the years.
He has worked in the telecommunications industry for the past 20 years, most recently at T-Mobile as a Resolutions Specialist.
Craig is survived by his father and mother, Pastor Al and Mary Ann Hulten, his sister, Lisa Barkley, his much-loved nieces and nephew, Katelynn, Chris, and Emily Barkley, by numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, and by a host of friends.
Our hearts are broken and we miss him greatly, but the end of the story has not yet been written; we will be together with him in heaven in a short while.
