Vale Peter Creely

It is with deep sadness that we learned of Peter Creely’s passing at 3pm Friday 3 December.

Peter was a stalwart of Bendigo Orienteers. I knew Peter since joining the club in the early 2000’s and fondly remember his enthusiasm for our sport and friendly, welcoming personality.

There is nothing Peter wouldn’t raise his hand to help with. His one true passion was Space Racing which he developed, implemented and reiterated over several years. The Space Racing program resulted in a “golden era” for our club with the Victorian junior team being almost solely comprised of Bendigo club members for several years.

His contribution to our club will never be forgotten.

On behalf of the club I extend our deepest sympathies to Peter’s family. I’d encourage you all to reach out to other club members to offer support and reminisce about Peter’s many significant contributions to the club.
