    Arrow Memorial Website for Craig Levin

    There were a very small number of early gaming portal websites. I think www.CasinoCity.com was the first, with www.RGTonline.com and www.gambling.com starting fairly soon thereafter.

    There were not very many of us in the early days, and we were pretty friendly with one another. When Graeme Levin launched Gambling.com, I had CasinoCity run some banners for them to generate some publicity for their launch. I've always considered Graeme to be a friend, and we've always chatted and said hello when we were at conferences together, which happened quite a bit.

    Graeme's son, Craig Levin, was very active in his father's business for a number of years and was prominent in the development and running of Gambling.com and a number of other sites in the online gambling industry.

    Tragically, two years ago today, on July 22, 2005, Craig was killed in an automobile accident. Graeme recently had a web site developed in his memory at www.craiglevin.com. There is information about Craig's life and the nearly 200 who sent condolences have their messages on the site.

    My heart goes out to Graeme on this anniversary of Craig's accident. Please join me in visiting the site in his memory.

    Michael,

    Thanks for posting this.

    To be honest I had no idea Craig had passed away.

    It was shortly before this date (2 years ago) that everything came crashing down around my ears. Hence I was off-line for a good 8 months.

    Anyway, although I didn't know Graeme personally, we had over the years sent a few emails back and forth. So I'll definitely be visiting the site.



    Regards

    Dave


    Edit: Memories come flooding back to another well know identity Julie Sidwell who worked for gambling.com. Another great person who our industry lost.

    That is very sad. My sympathies go to his family at what must be a difficult time of the year.
