Harry moved as a young child to Hobgood, NC and subsequently to Washington, NC where he became a boating enthusiast. After attending NC State University, he moved to Greensboro, NC. In 1951 he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and became a rifle-range instructor at the Weapons Training Battalion in Paris Island, SC. After his military service, Harry returned to Greensboro and married Betty Williams of Summerfield, NC.

In 1994, Harry and Betty moved to Wilmington, NC where they lived until moving to Marietta in 2006. Harry was an avid gardener, wood worker, bird watcher and storyteller. He was a loving husband and father, a caring grandfather and a proud great grandfather. He always lit up a room with his presence and great sense of humor. He will be dearly missed and remembered by all who knew him. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Betty Creekmuir of Marietta, his sons William S. Creekmuir of Atlanta and Harry W. Creekmuir of Hurdle Mills, NC, twin daughters Susan Patterson of Marietta and Sandra Knaebel of Theodore, AL, 13 grandchildren, 5 of whom are Eagle Scouts, and 5 great-grandchildren.
