Frank Ross Creasy Jr. June 20, 1930 – August 11, 2020


Frank Ross Creasy Jr. June 20, 1930 – August 11, 2020

Frank was born in Fort Francis, Canada. His family immigrated to Bend, Oregon. Frank said at that time, you had to have a sponsor family and a job to emigrate from Canada. The Creasy family moved to Portland where Frank entered the USMC at age 18, right after graduation. He served in all the major campaigns during the Korean War. Frank met and married Glenna and they made their home in Toledo, Oregon. Frank was a shipping supervisor at Georgia Pacific until he retired. He was an avid reader and served for a number of years on the library board. Frank loved to golf and play card games with his buddies. He helped set up the Lady Elks table during the Toledo street market and was always willing to help out. Frank had a sense of humor that could make you laugh out loud; he was a kidder and jokester of the best kind. Frank was a longtime member of the Toledo Elks Lodge of 63 years where he spent time with friends as well as helping with projects to improve the community. Frank said many times he had a wonderful life and was lucky to have a family that he loved.  Anyone who knew Frank was familiar with his saying “you are no spring chicken” Every day is a gift, Hooray hooray! It’s the first of May outdoor... begins today. Frank is with the love of his life and they are angels together in heaven. Frank departed this life on August 11, 2020 at the Oregon Veterans Home in Lebanon, OR where he was lovingly and compassionately cared for. He will be very missed by his family and friends. Frank was preceded in death by his loving Wife of over 53 years Glenna as well as his younger Brothers Fred (Butch) Creasy and Gerry Creasy. Frank is survived by children he claimed as his family upon marriage to Glenna. The family grew into more brothers and Frank loved having sisters, nieces and nephews, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and greatgreat-grandchildren. Frank had a special place in his heart for his great-great grandsons, Russ Jr. and Liam. They loved him dearly. Frank, may he rest in peace. Frank will have an Elks funeral service a celebration of life when we are allowed large gatherings safely.
