Walter Otey Creasy, 87, of Roanoke, Va., was born on November 21, 1921, in Bedford County, to the late William and Elizabeth Stevens Creasy. He spent his final days in his home, surrounded by his family and loved ones. He passed away the early morning of Thursday, September 3, 2009. Mr. Creasy owned and operated Creasy's Oil Burner Services for over 25 years. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and working in his garden, but was most happy simply being outdoors doing anything. He was a man that always wanted to give but never expected anything in return. He was a humble person in that he was always happy with whatever was given to him without ever asking for anything more. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. In addition to his parents, Mr. Creasy is preceded in death by his wife of 65 years, Zenna Ash Creasy, who passed away just eight months earlier. Also preceding him in death are sisters, Mary Witt, Odessa Orange and Nannie McDaniel; brothers, Billy Creasy, Asey Creasy and Thomas Creasy; and granddaughter, Sherry Lynn Wilson. He leaves to cherish his memory, four children, Roger Creasy and Judy, Bonnie Conner and Buster, Peggy Creasy, and Ronda Parr and Tony, all of Roanoke; seven grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; a brother, William Henry Creasy, of Moneta; a sister, Elizabeth Cooper, of Thaxton; numerous nieces and nephews; and his favorite "granddog," Chelsea. Services will be held 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 5, 2009, at Oakey's North Chapel with Pastor Don Eshelman officiating. Interment will follow at Blue Ridge Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends on Friday, September 4, 2009, from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. The family wishes to thank Good Samaritan Hospice for their care and services, and also wishes to extend a special Thank You to Rita Peoples, CNA, for having such a genuine and caring heart, and for becoming a part of our family. Arrangements by Oakey's North Chapel, 540-362-1237.
