In Memoriam: Craig Budge, DZ-7622

Craig ‘The Sniper’ Budge, DZ-7622 from the Redback Garrison passed away suddenly on Saturday night. He was 42 years old. A 501st member since 2009, Craig was also a member of the Rebel Legion’s Tatooine Base and the Mandalorian Mercs Sandhawk Clan.
Craig was an extremely well-liked and highly respected member of these three close costuming families. His enthusiasm, generosity, and devotion to the many charitable causes that he supported through these clubs will be sorely missed in the Queensland costuming community.
Craig never sought the limelight, but he was as dedicated and as tireless a trooper as one could ever hope to meet. And whilst we are profoundly saddened at his loss, we are all richer in our hearts for knowing him. It is with great pride that we now enter this name into the 501st Hall of Eternal Legionnaires.
