Mr. Perry Worrell Creed, 84, of Mount Airy, passed away January 9, 2020 at Joan & Howard

Adirondack furniture, birdhouses, and curio cabinets, watch the birds from his back porch, and

spend time on his computers; he built a cabin off the Blue Ridge Parkway where many good

times were spent; but his all-time favorite activity was planning his summer garden and thinking

about all of the prize-winning tomatoes that he would grow.

daughter, Sandy Creed Allen; granddaughter and husband, Holly Lauren Lanter and Taylor
