Richard R Creighton - January 14,1929—January 23, 2022
A genuine gentleman, Great aviator, True friend and who will be missed by all who knew him.
Richard learned how to fly before he learned how to drive, and after a life in the military driving a truck, went on to fly helicopters over Chicago and performing pipeline surveys. With his son aboard was said to have chased deer and bears while in the chopper out on a survey, having the skill to almost put a skid on a deer's back while giving chase. Having given up flying long ago Richard came weekly to our chapter club house and enjoyed the fellowship of fellow pilots until just recently.On April 16, 2022 we dedicated our Chapter 908 clubhouse to him.
