Default Former Newton Chamber director dies

Former Greater Area Newton Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Craig Light died on Monday. Light served as the director in Newton for two years, first on an interim basis beginning in March 2015 until his departure in February 2016.

“Craig was a great past executive director and he really stepped up at a time when we needed him,” chamber executive director Amanda Price said. “We are very saddened by his passing and asked you keep his family and friends in your thoughts at this time.”

Light first came to the community in 2010 on an interim basis and returned almost four years later after having a great experience in Newton. After returning Light said he was enthusiastic to be a part of a community that was making great strides.

After two years in the position, Light left to be closer to home and move on to other endeavors. In that time, he once again became involved with the Urbandale Chamber of Commerce, where he was formerly employed and served as a past-president.

Services for Light have been scheduled with visitation taking place from 1 to 3 p.m. on Friday at Merle Hay Funeral Home. A memorial service will follow at 3 p.m.
