Charles Derek Criniere 1978-2022
Charles died suddenly on August 27, 2022, when he was hit by a car while on a bicycle, leaving behind his wife and 10 children, 9 of whom are still at home. He was a devoted husband and father who deeply loved his family. Now the Criniere family is left in what seems like an impossible situation. However, the community is responding in amazing ways and the family is carrying a message of great hope!
Charles was a graffiti artist on the streets of Chicago until his faith in Jesus radically changed his life. He was a Deacon at Grace Point Baptist Church and a beloved public school teacher in Grandview, Missouri. His whole mission in life was to bring lasting change to the next generation.
