Many have also remembered Craig for his love of animals, including his dog.
Chris Coe said: 'We spoke regular either on [Facebook] via text or passing when you was walking your dog. You was the life and soul of the party, laughing and getting everyone going. You're missed so much by many out there. You're one in a million. You're the other side of the rainbow where I hope you're happy and relaxed.'
Other friends close to Craig reminisced about times out together.
Emma Burgess, of Beccles, said: 'We had some good chuckles together! Singing Disney songs on overtime, having a natter about life. Your laugh was the funniest and could always tell when you were about. It's hard to think you were suffering and that this was your only option. You will be sorely missed Craggle. Shine bright.'
And Liab Reynolds, who joined in with the celebrations at Norwich Pride with Craig, said: 'What a great friend he was to have. Always life and soul of the party, and he'll always be remembered fondly in our hearts.'
