Larry’s greatest pleasure was spending time with his family, especially his nine grandchildren. He considered them to be his most treasured gifts and could always be seen watching their sporting events, music and dance performances, or simply playing the guitar and singing with them. He loved traveling with Betty, friends and family. He also loved visiting his favorite place – Point Sebago in Maine. Larry felt at home in left field while playing for a number of teams in the Lynn Softball League over several decades. He coached his children’s sports teams, started an annual horseshoe tournament and played many rounds of golf. Prior to his retirement in 2014, Larry was a highly respected employee for 42 years at Boston Gas/National Grid in Malden. Countless people considered Larry to be a lifelong friend. Larry leaves behind his three children and their spouses, Katie Guitard and her husband, Dan of Danvers, Lauren Rec and her husband, Brian, also of Danvers, and Timothy Creamer, Sr. and his wife, Stacy of Charlotte, NC. He was the brother of David Creamer and his wife, Donna, of Denver, CO, Debbie Owens of Danvers, Lois Creamer, of Danvers, Lynne Votano and her husband, Tony, of Lynn, Kenny Creamer, of Lynn, and the late Danny Creamer, of Lynn. Larry was the loving grandfather to Andrew, Timothy Jr. (T.J.), Jacob, Penny, Ella, Teresa, Bryson, Landon, and Damon. He is also survived by Betty’s family with whom he considered to be brothers and sisters of his own. There are also many nephews and nieces, who grew up loving and respecting their Uncle Larry.
