    I truly loved Dr. Creek. He was my teacher and then my mentor as I worked for the Roy J. Creek Excellence in Teaching Scholarship as a Falk parent. While I was a little girl, I was also a guest in his home because his daughter JeanIne was in my class. He was kind, and patient and had a secret dry humor. Thank you Dr. Creek for teaching me more than just my ABC’s. My condolences to Mrs. Creek, Jeanine and Roy Jr.

  • Dr. Leslie F. Thyberg

    I had the joy and privilege of working under Roy’s leadership at Falk for nearly a decade. He was always patient and gracious–and it is due, in large part to his encouragement, that I went on to earn a doctorate. May he rest in peace and may his loved ones be comforted by the fact that he touched so very many lives.

  • Michele Samuels

    Dr. Creek was a kind and steadfast influence in my life when I was at Falk school. I have told many people about my experiences at Falk and the community that he created there “from the top, down”. He embodied every positive trait he expected from the community and also took a personal interest in so many students. He made a difference. May his memory be a blessing and may all who benefitted from his teaching, kindness and love pay it forward. The world is a better place because he was in it. My world, too.

  • Isabel Alcoff

    Dear Pat and family, I was deeply saddened to hear that Roy has passed. He played a large role in my children’s lives and thousands of others. I will remember his laid back leadership style and that he always did the right thing. His many accomplishments left a long lasting mark on Falk School. I am so proud that we named the Scholarship after him: The Roy J. Creek Excellence in Teaching Scholarship. I am hundreds of miles away and can’t be there with you, but my thoughts are with you. Sincerest condolences.

  • Dr. Eugene M. Dangelo

    I taught music at Falk School with Dr. Don Mushalko during Dr. Creek’s directorship. He was also on my Ph.D. dissertation committee and was a fine friend and mentor. He always beat me at Chess as well! My deepest sympathy and prayers to the entire Creek family. Roy was an excellent human being and educator. May he rest in peace!–Dr. Gene Dangelo

  • Anne (Goldhammer) Moore

    To Dr. Creek’s entire family I send my deepest condolences. To Jeanine and Roy I send my love and deepest sympathies regarding your dad. I hope to see you on Thursday when I stop by with my husband. We don’t live far from the funeral home.
    Warmest regards,
