2024 LIS - Long Island Sound Open Water Swim

Captain Craig

In March 2017, Craig Cioffari lost his 15 month battle to Pancreatic Cancer. Craig was a dedicated patron of Swim Across America since its inception, volunteering for over 25 years in memory of one of his closest friends, Kathy Webers.

Craig was truly one of a kind - loyal, honest, and downright hilarious. Even during the hardest of times, Craig never lost his sense of humor, evoking smiles and laughter from the Memorial Sloan Kettering staff he befriended during the last year of his life. He was beyond grateful to everyone that helped him, and we could not have imagined better care.

An avid fisherman, "Captain Craig" loved nothing more than waking up at 4am to take his Boston Whaler out on the Long Island Sound in search of striped bass.

Craig was a devoted husband to Cindy, a loving father to Mark and Kate, a best friend to many, and a confidant to countless others.

Craig spent the final year of his life surrounded by his favorite people, entertaining family and friends. His legacy will be remembered forever - we love you dad!!
