William Creswell

March 22, 1945 — January 16, 2022

William Gary Creswell, 76, passed away on January 16, 2022, in Orem, UT. Gary was born in Santa Ana, CA to William Creswell and Floy Van Nortwick.  Gary married Linda Creswell on October 27, 2012 in American Fork, Utah.

Gary Loved the out of doors, camping fishing, hiking, being in God’s Country. He loved to sing. He loved to serve others and could accomplish anything he could get his hands on, especially when it came to working on cars, working with power tools, or anything that came from Home Depot. He loved demolishing and remodeling things. Gary loved jokes, including ones he was the brunt of. He was always a good sport and enjoyed a good, hearty laugh. Gary loved spending time with his family and particularly enjoyed family vacations and game nights with them, even though we teased how he always lost! As Gary grew older, his love for his family expanded to loving and supporting his grandchildren.

Gary is survived by his loving wife, Linda Creswell, daughter Melissa Creswell, step-children Ryan (Nikki) Zimmerman, Corey (Jill) Zimmerman, Tyson (Ashley) Zimmerman, Ashley (Phil) Lafeen, Kaycie Miyasaki; 22 grand-children, 1 great grandchild and 1 great-grandchild on the way; a sister Betty (Jim) Parises, and a niece Debra (John) Guedry.  William is preceded in death by his parents, William Creswell and Floy Van Nortwick and his niece Charlene Crossley.
