Creutzer was born in Sweden c. 1873, migrating to the US c. 1892. Like a lot of Scandinavian immigrants, he spent some time in the State of MN (amongst a transplanted Swedish community there) before heading West. He worked in Minneapolis, MN, and Spokane, WA, before coming to Seattle, WA, c. 1906. His name first appeared in the Seattle City Directory in 1908. In 1910, John and Hilma Creutzer lived in a house at 1204 North 45th Street in Seattle. At that time, Hilma's brother, Reuben Johnson (born c. 1886 in MN) lived with the Creutzers. They lived at 4610 Wallingford Avenue, Seattle, in 1918.

Creutzer married Hilma Johnson (born c. 1873 in Sweden) c. 1903. She came to the US as a young child, c. 1874. John and Hilma probably met in MN, as her family had settled in that state.

Creutzer returned by steamship from the Port of Goteborg, Sweden, on 01/03/1908 bound for New York, NY, via Hull, UK. His World War I Draft Registration Card indicated Creutzer to have been of medium height and build with brown hair and gray eyes in 1918.
