Bobby Lee Creamer, 83, of Spring City, Tennessee finished his Christian service on earth on Saturday, April 10, and God's grace has intervened and our beloved Barnabas was taken home to paradise where he is doing things now that we as believers can only be envious of, like celebrating family and being with loved ones that have gone before, and more than that, boundlessly worshiping our Lord and King. And even though it so saddens us to no longer be able to share stories, jokes, laughs, phone calls, visits, and hugs with him here on earth, we are celebrating his: no more worries, fears, discomforts, illnesses, tears and loneliness as he missed his wife Marlene, who preceded him in death in March of 2020.
Bobby will be fondly remembered for many things: He was a faithful member of the Glen Alice Christian Church in Rockwood, Tennessee. He graduated from Jeffersonville High School in Jeffersonville, Ohio and from Bliss Business College in Columbus, Ohio. He graduated from the Ohio Fire Safety and Ohio Peace Officers Training Academy. He was retired from the Cedarville, Ohio Fire Department and retired from the Cedarville, Ohio Police Department.
Bobby loved his gardening, canning, and freezing his home grown vegetables, and had a passion for helping his neighbors. While living in Cedarville, Ohio, Bobby was a carpenter and had a small store where he sold his self-made items and furniture. Bobby was an active pastor in the Barnabas Ministries and he and Marlene are well remembered as Henry and Sweetie in their faith-filled humorous skits and their column in the Paraklete monthly publication also entitled "Henry and Sweetie".
Bobby was born in Greenfield, Ohio on November 8, 1937. Bobby was preceded in death by his loving wife, Marlene Creamer, whom he married on February 14, 1981. Bobby also leaves one daughter, Deborah (Creamer) Miller, Cyprus, Greece, one step-daughter Sandy (Park) Tidd of Springfield, Ohio, three step-sons, Donald (Becky) Park, Orient, Ohio; Jim (Deanna) Park, South Charleston, Ohio; Tim Park, Clarksville, Tennessee; Eleven grandchildren, and 17 great grandchildren. He is survived by two sisters Barbara (Eldon) Creamer Howard, Locust Grove, Georgia, and Bonnie (Robert) Creamer Klingbeil, St. Augustine, Florida.
Bobby was also preceded in death by his wife, Melanie (Hanley) Creamer, and son Christopher Creamer; his parents, Robert and Leona Creamer, and his brother, Billy LeRoy Creamer.
A memorial service for Bobby will be held at the Glen Alice Christian Church, Rockwood, Tennessee at 3:00pm on Sunday, May 16, 2021 and a memorial service will also be held at the Jeffersonville Church of Christ in Jeffersonville, Ohio on Sunday, May 23, 2021 at 3:00 pm.
