Obituary for Richard Lamar Creech

On Wednesday July 20th, 2022, Richard Lamar Creech, loving son, brother and uncle, peacefully passed away at the age of 81 at Lexington Medical Center.

Richard was born August 9, 1940 in Charleston, SC to Talcott Broadus (“Tac”) Creech and Ruby (Ferguson) Creech. He was a graduate of Barnwell High School and worked for the Department of Energy at the Savannah River Plant for most of his career.

Richard had an unparalleled passion for sports of all kinds, especially tennis and racing. As his father, TB, was a mechanic for his entire life, Richard shared this love for automobiles and motorcycles. He was particularly fond of his 1967 Pontiac GTO, which he often affectionately referred to as his “GOAT”. An avid music lover, hunter and fisherman, Richard was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit.

Richard was preceded in death by his father, Talcott (“Tac”); his mother, Ruby and a brother, Bobby Creech. He is survived by his older brother, Talcott Broadus Creech, Jr. and his wife Cynthia of Atlanta, GA and his five children - Gayle, Eddie, Don, Stanley and Kevin; his older sister, Patricia Creech Berry of Greenville, SC and her 2 children, Bonnie and Byron; and Gary, Amy (Hiott), Tony and Timothy Creech, children of his late brother, Bobby Creech and his wife, Darlene.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, August 7th, 2017 at Mole Funeral Home in Barnwell. The family will receive friends at the funeral home beginning at 1:30. A private graveside memorial will follow the service. The family has requested in lieu of flowers that donations be sent to Barnwell County High School Booster Club/Tennis, 474 Jackson St. Barnwell, SC. 29812.
