  1. Emma Rogers

    Homer was one of my favorite cousins. He lived next to us when I was growing up and always had a way of “keeping me strait without making me mad nor hurting my feelings. While I know he will be missed, I am happy he will be with Millie, the love of his life. Just remember, those we love live forever in our hearts and are with us each time we think of them.

  2. Leigh Hudson

    Homer always made me feel like the son he never had. He taught me how to rabbit hunt and put the plumbing in my new house. He was on the back of the first fire truck I rode, and riding shotgun on the first fire truck I drove. He helped me put the new fixtures in the new hardware store. He clearly enjoyed watching me grow as a boy and a man. Homer was a hard working member of what we all honor as the Greatest Generation. Pug and I loved C. Homer Creech and we send our best to Mary, Jane, and his extended family.

  3. Joye Stephenson

    My parents, Aaron and Rosalie Stephenson, thought highly of Homer. When they had the grocery store on Main Street, he stopped in frequently. May Homer rest in peace and may you take comfort in knowing he led a full life with the support of family he loved.

  4. Cindy Ellis Blackwell

    My thought are with you and your family.

  5. Daniel Davis

    Mary Lou & Jane, I understand the pain of losing parents; I lost my father in November of 2014 and my Mom in April of 2015. You both have my deepest sympathies and my prayers.

  6. John Frantz

    Mary Lou and Jane, I looked forward to visits from your mom and dad when they would come back to PA. He always brought his tools with him and never turned down a request to fix anything for family. I will always remember the stories Uncle Homer shared with us about his hunting dogs and the fire dept. that he loved so much. He inspired me and my brother Dave to become volunteer firemen when we were old enough to join. He and Aunt Millie loved you girls so much.
    God has a good man with him now!

  7. Ann Daily

    Homer was a honorable and kind man who I will always love and respect.

  8. Gloria Masters

    He was the greatest and John is right. …always brought tools to fix things. Fixed for mom and dad, Bob and Teta, Pam and me. A wonderful man.
