  5. Prayers to your entire family. I am friends of one of the nieces to him and have heard so many positive things about him. Take time to grieve and celebrate what a wonderful man he was. It sounds like he has touched so many people’s lives, but especially the lives of a lot of children throughout his years in education. ❤️

  6. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember him so well as my Junior High Teacher at Lynchburg-Clay. I loved the Junior High years. May God comfort you and your family.

  7. May God wrap his loving arms around the family during this time. He was a great teacher, I can still remember sitting in his classroom. Windows wide open (on the 3rd floor!) he would be walking the room with his yard stick while teaching. He will be missed by many.

  8. I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. He was one of my favorite teachers. He will be missed by many.

  9. Joy and family,
    Mindy and I are praying for you. Count me as one of the many who learned their Ohio history in that upstairs room on the jr high side of Lynchburg Clay Elementary School from Mr. Creighton..
