Richard Wesley Creamer
At the age of 95, Richard Wesley Creamer, having lived a wonderful life, passed from this earth on January 20, 2020. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and companion and is survived by his loving companion, Janice White; his daughter, Leslie Jeanne Creamer Roth; his son, Richard Paul Creamer and his wife Diane Creamer; grandchildren Candice Creamer, Richard Paul Wesley Creamer, Kelsey Kremer Rogers, and Tobias Kremer Roth. He was also fortunate to have met and known four great grandsons.
Richard “Dick” Creamer was a fiercely loyal man to anyone he loved and cared about, especially his family. He was a P-51 pilot in WWII, which brought him well-earned accolades later in his life. After the war, he married Lois Ruth Gedeohn on June 7, 1947 and they were happily married until her death in June of 2008. Shortly thereafter, he found his loving companion, Janice White and they had another 10 years of happiness, travel, and good times. She was his angel, especially in these last months of his life. Dick loved to laugh, play cards, golf, snow and water ski, travel, and had many happy years with camping at Lake Chautauqua in upstate New York. He was a friend to anyone he met and will be dearly missed!
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday February 1, 2020 at 11:00 am at University United Methodist Church, 4412 S. Maryland Parkway, Las Vegas, NV, 89119.
I was Leslie’s room mate in collage. Both Dick and Lois accepted me into their lives with open arms and I often felt like part of their loving family. I still do. My heart and tears are with you all as you celebrate Dicks life . He will always be a champion to many.
Oh Mimi, thank you, sweet friend! Love you!
We have had the greatest pleasure knowing Dick, Lois, and Jan through the 352nd Fighter Group reunions. It was such a privilege to listen to history through Dick’s sharp wit, bright smile and always the gentleman. We are grateful Dick and Jan were able to continue to join us for these past several years. How fortunate are we to have spent time with those who changed the face of history. God Bless you. We will miss Dick and wish we could be there to celebrate his life.
I met Richard and Janice at a number of 352nd reunions. He was a man that was friendly and kind to everyone he met. The three of us spent a lot of time together at the 352nd reunion in Huntsville Alabama during the reunion and the day after when we couldn’t leave due to mass thunderstorms. Richard had a great sense of humor and kept of spirits up the whole time. He will be missed. Kent R Harbidge
