STANLEY SHELEY CRESON

November 5, 1926-October 25, 2016

A long time resident of Auburn, Washington, Stanley was born in Salem, Oregon to Fern Elena Fought, but lived his childhood on a homestead off Oravetz Road south of the Stuck River in Auburn. When he was 15 years old he joined the Merchant Marines, having lied about his age and quitting school. Neither was uncommon at the time. After years of poverty in the depression of the 1930’s the beginning of the Second World War was, for some, the only way out. Therefore, Stan’s formative years were spent traveling and working on Merchant ships, mostly in the Asian Pacific. For many years after the war he worked as a Miner, Lumberjack, Seaman hauling goods to Alaska by tug boat, and as an iron worker building bridges. Stan had a strong will and physical being. Just days before his 90th birthday he thought only of getting up, sitting in a chair and going back home.

In 1949 Stan proposed, by letter from Alaska, to Camille Louise Gleason. Together they raised six children until the death of Camille Louise Creson on January 26, 2012.

Both died with all six children spending much time with them in their final days. Both our parents will live on in our memories. If there is an after life, then they are together again. And of course, their stories are far too large to tell here, now, but will be collectively recalled for years by their surviving family.
