Craig D. Clouatre

July 20, 1981 — March 23, 2022

It is with great sadness that the family of Craig Clouatre announce his unexpected passing on March 23, 2022, while hiking in the mountains of Montana. Craig was taken too soon at the young age of 40.He leaves his loving wife and best friend of 20 years, Jamie; their 4 beautiful children, Davin, 14, Zoe, 12, and twins, Kylie and Ella, 9; his father, David Clouatre, of Candia, NH; his mother and stepdad, Robin and Karl Alm, of West Brookfield, MA; his brother and sister-in-law, Wyatt and Alicia Alm; grandmother, Phyllis Shaylor; as well as several aunts, uncles, cousins and an incredible amount of friends. Craig is preceded in death by his grandfather, William Shaylor.Born and raised in West Brookfield, MA, Craig's love for the mountains began at the early age of 6, conquering the trails of Mount Washington, NH. He graduated from Quaboag Regional High School and proceeded to the University of Presque Isle in Maine, where after his first year, joined a summer program working the trail crew in Oregon. After his summer program, he felt a strong desire to visit the small town of West Yellowstone, MT, near the entrance of Yellowstone National Park; Craig truly fell in love with Montana and all it had to offer. He worked at the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center and what started as a dream, turned into a lifelong adventure.Craig met his wife, Jamie, in West Yellowstone and the two started their lives together in Livingston. He loved anything to do with the outdoors and the mountains; Craig had a distinct passion for antler hunting. He was an incredible mountaineer and was working on successfully climbing the highest peaks in the West. Craig conquered all of Montana's and Idaho's 12,000 footers and all of Utah's 13,000 footers in one push which was an incredible feat of which he and his family were very proud. He was working on different mountaineering trips to Wind River Range, one of his favorite places.Everyone who knew Craig loved him. He made friends wherever he went and truly delighted in listening to people's stories and sharing his contagious zest for life with a smile and friendship. He made time for everyone he met and was genuinely a caring and loving soul. The family would like to thank the Park County Sheriff's Office, SAR Team, and the many volunteers that worked diligently to bring Craig home to his family. A Celebration of Craig's Life will be private and by invitation only. A memorial dinner and fundraiser for his wife children will be held for the community and announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to "Craig Clouatre Family", c/o American Bank, 120 N 2nd Street, Livingston MT 59047.
