Craton graduated from Sargent High School in Monte Vista, Colo. in 1958 and received his B.A. degree in teaching from Adams State College. He married his wife, Phyllis on June 17, 1962. He was a very loving and devoted husband.

Craton loved running the river, boating, fishing, hunting, camping in the R.V., four wheeling and of course spending time with his grandchildren, family and many friends.
