Frank was a kind, loving and gentle man; a stoic, hardworking man full of intestinal fortitude. Frank was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather; a man of unfailing pleasant demeanor, who never, ever lost his temper, raised his voice, or spoke poorly of others. Frank always had a pleasant smile and a hello for everyone, and was always willing to help others. A team in heaven just gained a master 45’s player.
Frank was predeceased by his loving wife, Irene Creeley, in 2009. Frank is survived by his son, Ronald Creeley of Peterborough, Diane Creeley of Peterborough, and his four grandchildren, Meghan Creeley and Johanna Creeley of Peterborough, Brian Creeley and his wife, Christine, of Roslindale, and Sean Creeley of Gloucester.
