In Memoriam – John Berdes, 1957 ~ 2016
In June 2016, the Craft3 family lost beloved founder and CEO John Berdes to lung cancer. For more than two decades, John inspired us – and the communities we work in – to be better, stronger, and more resilient. He was determined, deeply thoughtful, a little irreverent, and frequently brilliant. And he will never be far from our minds and our hearts.
John dedicated his life to helping those around him; the world will be less well off without him. Our work continues in his memory though – and with every impact Craft3 makes, we will think fondly of our friend and all the good that he did during his time with us.
