Craig Francis Ertel, 58, of Rockville, Connecticut passed away unexpectedly on March 3, 2019 at his home. He was a lifelong resident of Rockville.

Craig was born on September 12, 1960, the youngest of three children of the late Thomas R. Ertel and Norma (Byrnes) Ertel. Craig leaves two siblings; David V. Ertel of Groveland, Florida , and sister Lynn (Ertel) Haberern of Windsor Locks. He also leaves one nephew, Jonathan R. Haberern of Windsor Locks; three nieces, Heather (Ertel) Mucha of Glastonbury, Elizabeth (Haberern) Cullen of Syracuse, New York, and one beloved great niece, Casey Haberern.

Craig loved being outdoors. He was an avid fisherman, hunter, and gardener. He enjoyed not only harvesting his garden vegetables, but sharing them with his neighbors.

Craig looked forward to family gatherings and opportunities to discuss nature and wild life. He knew by name many if not all of the bird population of Connecticut. He was a dedicated Red Sox fan attending many games in Boston with friends. Craig will be dearly missed by his family and friends.

Family and friends are welcome to attend calling hours at the Burke-Fortin Funeral Home, 76 Prospect Street, Rockville from 4:30 to 6:30 PM on Thursday, March 7. A prayer service will follow at 6:30 PM. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Shriners Children's Hospital, Springfield, MA in memory of Craig's mother Norma (Byrnes) Ertel. For online condolences, please visit
