Mr. Joseph L. Creamer, 83, of Milford MA died Tuesday (August 22, 2023) at the Milford Regional Medical Center. He was the beloved husband of the late Marie R. (Giancola) Creamer who died in 2013. 


Joseph was born in Milford MA, the son of the late George Creamer and the late Lillian (Hannigan) Creamer. He was a graduate of the former St. Mary’s High School, Class of 1957.


Joseph was a US Navy veteran having served from 1958 to  1962 and was stationed aboard the USS Forrestal.

Joseph took great pride in taking care of his residence, both inside & out. He also was an avid reader, loved to do crossword puzzles and was an avid NE Patriots fan. But his favorite past time was spending time with his beloved family members.
