FR. DAVID GORDON CREAMER, SJ
1946 - 2021

Fr. David G. Creamer of the Society of Jesus died peacefully on April 17, 2021, at La Storta House in Pickering, ON.
Dave was born in Saint John, NB, the son of David Creamer and Ruth Keir. He was 74 years old and in his 52nd year as a Jesuit. In Winnipeg David was President of St. Paul's High School and later taught at St. Paul's College at the University of Manitoba. There he co-founded the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Development, which later became the Jesuit Centre for Catholic Studies at St. Paul's College. David was also involved in the Mauro Centre and the Peace and Conflict Studies program at the College, including serving on the Mauro Board. He often took his students to India to witness the lifestyle of the poor. In light of his pastoral ministry at Stony Mountain Penitentiary, David - with help of Sr. Carol Peloquin SNJM - founded 'Future Hope', an organization that helps ex-offenders transition out of the prison system by providing personal formation and transitional housing.
A private mass of Christian Burial will be livestreamed at 9:00 a.m. (CDT) on Monday, April 26 from St. Ignatius Chapel at Manresa Renewal Centre in Pickering (https://funeraweb.tv/en/diffusions/28225), and available for streaming after that time. Interment to follow at the Jesuit Cemetery, Guelph, ON.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to Future Hope (through St. Ignatius Parish, 255 Stafford Street, Winnipeg), St. Paul's College or St. Paul's High School would be appreciated.
