James Creason was born on May 2, 1946, to parents Vernon and Hildred (Hines) Creason in the state of Missouri. He grew up in Missouri for a brief period of time before moving to Iowa with his family in 1955. Jim attended high school at Beaman-Conrad and graduated in the class of 1965. Although Jim never married, he had a family and friends who cared and loved him dearly. In his free time, you might find Jim spending time with his friends, showing off his sense of humor by joking around with his friends at the Odd Fellows apartments or going to Taco Johns every Tuesday for Taco Tuesday.

Left to cherish his memory are his sister Jean Boone and brother Vernon (Rose) Creason; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and special friend Dennis Paxson.

In death Jim rejoins his parents Vernon and Hildred Creason; both paternal and maternal grandparents, brother- in-law Mel Boone; sister Joan Hanlin and nephew Terry Creason.
