I was a neighbor and friend of John Creech for several years here at Grand Towers. John always wanted to be "among them". I was always outside with the rest of my neighbors in good and not so good weather. He was always nice and friendly. He was always in a good mood. I enjoyed him very much and I will miss him.

My deepest sympathy to Tami and the family of John. I always felt safe when I was around him. I always considered him to be a American Hero. Here at Grand Towers admired him very much. When I had a car I bought him lunch every day , he faithfully always paid. He will be missed.
