Richard Creer

August 7, 1944 — January 27, 2019

Our amazing father and grandfather passed from this mortal life on January 27, 2019 with his family

lovingly surrounding him.

Richard Lynn Creer was born to Ronald "Bonnie" and Beth (Rose) Creer on August 7, 1944 in Spanish

Fork, Utah. His early years were spent in Leland, Utah and he graduated from Spanish Fork High School

in 1962. He married his sweetheart, Judy Ileen (Henline) on December 4, 1964. They were later sealed in

the Salt Lake City Temple and had just celebrated their 54th year of marriage.

Richard's family was the center of his life and he was always the happiest when he was surrounded by

his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He never met a stranger that stayed a stranger for

long, and he was known for opening his heart and his home to anyone in need.

Richard is survived by his beloved wife Judy and their 4 children; Bonnie Lynn (Troy) Reyes, Charles

Richard (Ashley) Creer, Kyle Dain (Emily) Creer and Raynee Creer (Jeramie Hansen). Also of special

mention are Jeffrey Wagner and Sarah Lamb, though not his children by blood, he considered himself

their dad, their children his grandchildren and made room in his heart for them all.

His legacy includes 21 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren and countless other young men and women

that he took it upon himself to love as he would his own at the times they needed it most. He leaves

behind a big sister, Joyce (Mack) Brown and 2 younger brothers, Douglas (Kathy) Creer and Curtis Creer.

He was preceded in death by his parents; 3 older brothers, Craig, Charles, and Deloy (Joan) Creer plus 2

sisters Shauna and Vera Creer.

We will miss him dearly but we are comforted to know that we are forever his, he is forever ours and we

will be together again someday.

A celebration of his life will be held at 11:00 AM, Saturday, February 2, 2019 in the LDS Chapel at 250

South 580 East, Santaquin, Utah 84655.

We welcome all that remember him to attend and share a story of how he touched their life.

Many thanks to the Doctors that have cared for him over the years and to the caring hands of his home

health aide and hospice nurses that helped to ease his pain these last few months.
