George Creel Death, Obituary – Today was the day that I finally got around to writing my very first obituary. I have forwarded this to the funeral home in the hopes that it may be published in the local newspaper. On April 8th, at the age of 68, George Michael Creel, who had retired as a truck driver and worked as a welder, passed suddenly. His family, friends, and community will remember him as a man who was always smiling, full of love, and friendly to everyone he met. He never knew an enemy.
George Rogers was the oldest child of Ardina Rogers and the first of her five children to be born. His mother, daughter Christina Graham and her husband Brian, grandchildren Ashton Graham and Kaitlin Jolliff, younger brother Larry Parker, younger sister Susan Crowder, and youngest twin brothers Thomas Edward Creel and Thomas Franklin Creel are the only members of his immediate family to survive him. The name “Lil Bit” he gave to his adorable furry friend meant the world to him.
George enjoyed fishing, and he was always eager to meet new people and try new things, such as creating candles or tumbling rocks. George was always up for an adventure. In addition to that, he was enthusiastic about the collection of pocket knives, chess, brainteasers, and any ridiculous scheme that promised instant wealth. He possessed a one-of-a-kind and eccentric personality that made other people laugh and grin. He was optimistic, lively, and rather goofy, and he had a knack of making people laugh because to the way he carried himself.
Spending time with George’s wife and children was one of his favorite things to do because they were the most important thing in his life. When I was a kid, one of my most cherished memories of my dad is of the times we went fishing together. My father was fishing some distance away from me when all of a sudden he sprang up and started saying something that I couldn’t understand.
He brought his fishing poles in, gathered his equipment, and began to run toward me while dodging and weaving through the crowd. It turned out that my dad was yelling about large hail pelting him and yelling at me to run to the house before the hail got to me too.
George Michael Creel will be remembered as a funny, loving, and caring man who didn’t mind being silly in order to make people laugh. His loved ones and friends will miss him very much after his passing. George, may you finally rest in peace.
