We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Borkoski Funeral Home Cadiz, Ohio
Reverend Ernest Lee Creamer, 78, of Cadiz, died Saturday, January 22nd, 2022 at Trinity Medical Center West. He was surrounded by his children and two grandsons.
Born September 11th, 1943 in Martins Ferry, Ernest was a son of the late Clarence H and Dorothy Warden Creamer. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Minnie Belle, sister, Barbara, and brothers, Jimmy, Charles and Bill.
He was retired from Weirton Steel and the Nazarene Church in Cadiz, as well as a Veteran of the United States Navy.

His Outreach Ministry touched the lives of many who spent their final years in nursing homes throughout the Ohio Valley. His soup kitchen in Cadiz fed hundreds over the years. He loved his life as a preacher, traveling around the country, helping people in need, and Sunday dinners; but most of all, he loved his family.
