How do I share so many memories? My favorite ones are of him saying (after school, while waiting on my mom to get off work), "Pam, let's play some duets." Duets I had never seen or played before (this made me very good at sight reading). But we sounded pretty amazing, together. I can not even tell you all about the impact Mr. Creamer had on my life. It is too much to even describe. "You can do anything you want to do, as long as you want to do it badly enough." I still hear his voice, every day. 💜 I love and miss you all. Clarinets players rock! 😃

Mr. Creamer was my band director at Jonesboro Jr. High. I will never forget his love for music and how he transferred it to us kids. He was strict and expected much. No excuses for not being prepared or not following through. Our band was superior at band festival with high ratings. I think about him from time to time and all that he shared with us as junior high school students at the time. God bless the family and thank you for sharing Mr. Creamer with us.

My memory is of Mr. Creamer at Jonesboro Jr. High (1970 - 1973). I had already switched from band to chorus when he came. My sister was in the band along with numerous friends. Great memories of our families getting together. Great stories. Love to Sue, Jeff and the family.

I will always remember Mr. Creamer from Doughtery Junior High School. He inspired my love of music and helped me to continue on with the band. I know he will be leading a band in Heaven in one of the many Bands God has. My prayers are with the family during this time.
