Craig `Lumpy` Tonkinson , Age: 40
March 31, 1978 -- April 16, 2018

Craig William Tonkinson, who died on April 16th, 2018, aged 40, was a stand-up guy (literally, a stand-up comic) with a dark and overtly offensive sense of humor. Craig was born in California in 1978 and was a complete disappointment to his Mother, Joanie Stratton Tonkinson and Father, Ronald Tonkinson, not really! Craig was dearly loved and admired by his parents, family, and friends.

Craig enjoyed classic rock music, professional hockey and was the only adult male in Kansas City who could wear a Superman costume in public with complete confidence. Like most white kids from the burbs, Craig grew up as an avid fan of Bo Jackson, Dungeons and Dragons and he had an ironic penchant for early 90’s gangster rap. Craig will always be remembered as a shameless self-promoter who abused social media in a desperate attempt to sellout his comedy shows.

While he was never married, Craig’s biggest life accomplishment was appearing on The Price is Right in 1998 where he dominated “Plinko” only to be defeated in the “Showcase Showdown” (typical Craig). A Celebration of Craig’s Life will be held at Noon on Saturday, April 21st at The Mulberry Room (1321 W. 13th St. Kansas City, MO). This is a casual affair in keeping with Craig's style of blue jeans and a t-shirt. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Wayside Waifs, 3901 Martha Truman Rd. Kansas City, Mo 64137.
