Craig R. Jurgens was born on September 4, 1970 in Dickinson to Daryl and Carolyn (Hauck) Jurgens. He grew up on the family farm north of Taylor. Craig attended school in Taylor and graduated from Richardton High School in 1989. Later in his early 20’s he attended truck driving school.

Craig was a farm boy at heart, growing up on the family farm and working as a farm hand for multiple farmers in the Taylor area.  He also spent a few summers on a custom harvesting crew traveling through various states.  He later used those skills to continue the family farm.  He enjoyed tending to his cows.  His favorite time of the year was calving season.  He was very proud of his registered red angus cattle as those are what started his first herd.  Even in our sorrow we feel his presence as we were gifted with a set of twins from one of his red angus cows.  Calving was his most favorite aspect of ranching.  His cows knew him well.  Craig also loved to roll on in his 18 wheeler driving along side his parents and his brother Mike in their family business, Jurgens Operating. Beyond his cattle and his yellow Kenworth, Abby was his greatest gift.  He enjoyed attending her various activities and supporting her in any way that he could.  Recently having her join the ranch was a dream come true.

If you knew Craig, he was one of the hardest workers and the most generous and self-less men.  He enjoyed multiple phone conversations while traveling.  Not much time was spent in silence. Craig was known for his quick gait, and he was always on the move.

Craig is survived by his daughter, Abigale Rose Albrecht Jurgens Trucking of Taylor; parents, Daryl and Carolyn (Hauck) Jurgens of Dickinson; siblings, Perry (Chris) Jurgens of Gladstone, Ronald (Roberta) Jurgens of Park River, Mike (Paula) Jurgens of Dickinson, Jeanine (Aaron) Schmidt of Dickinson and Jody (Jonathen) Sackman of Dickinson; and numerous nieces, nephews, and great-nephews.
