Leo “Bucky” Creamer, 88

Leo Christopher Creamer (Bucky), a lifelong resident of Greenwich, passed away on August 13 at the age of 88. Bucky was born on September 26, 1933 in Greenwich. He is the last surviving child of Leo and Cecilia (Masterson) Creamer, predeceased by six brothers (James, John, William, Robert, Peter, Frank) and three sisters (Alice, Mary, Jean).

He graduated from Greenwich High School in 1951, and then served in the US Marine Corps from 1951-1954.

Bucky worked for the Town of Greenwich for many years, including at the Board of Education and the Animal Control Unit. Upon retiring, Bucky remained active as a crossing guard, where he was reliable and well-liked by all those he helped. Bucky also had various jobs handling animals, which he loved.

Often you could see Bucky walking through the park or down Greenwich Avenue greeting people. He was always up for a chat, a cup of coffee, or a drink. He is last in line of a family that will be remembered for spicing up Greenwich with their boisterous, lively manner.

He is survived by loving nieces, nephews and a host of long-time friends.

A memorial gathering will be held on Wednesday, September 7, 2022 from 4:00pm-6:00pm at Coxe and Graziano Funeral Home, 134 Hamilton Ave, Greenwich.
