Mr. Kenneth Edward Creech was born on 1-23-1966 in Booneville, KY. He passed away on 10-11-21 at just 55 years old in Wooton, KY. He is survived by his daughter, Bailey Elizabeth Creech, his wife Shelly Margaret Creech, his mother Wanda Mae Bowling, his father Wendell Edward Creech, his brother Jimmy Rae Creech and two sisters Trena Dotson and Renae Creech.
Ken served the United States Army in Desert Storm. After the service he went on to build and own Brentwood Farms Golf Club, C4 Builders construction, and his nonprofit organization Green Energy Research Inc. using fossil fuels. After almost 20 years in business he retired as a disabled Gulf War veteran as his health deteriorated. Serviced related illness and pain wore his body but a brilliant mind remained. His sense of the world and depth amazed anyone he met, and being the smartest person in the room was seldom not the case. He could fix, build or make anything even from nothing at all. In his spare time he enjoyed mostly reading and documentaries.. Anything to further his understanding of the world and its history. He had endless ideas and projects.. And creating things was his talent and what he loved to do. Ken was also an artist with a sheet of paper and pen. He wrote books and beautiful poetry with dreams of one day submitting his work for publishing. His most admired role models included Abraham Lincoln and Chief Joseph. He too was of Cherokee Indian descent and was proud of that and all their tribe stood for. Ken was a man of honor. Strong, loyal and resilient in the face of hardship. He loved his daughter endlessly and being a good father was of the utmost importance to him. He accomplished everything he set out to do and he took care of those he loved that depended on him. His daughter plans to finish and publish his literary works and finish the projects he set out to had he not been taken too soon. He has created lasting change in the lives of so many, including those he protected having served in the US military. There wasn’t a thing he believed in or needed that he didn’t fight for including lives of thousands of people he had never even meet. He will be missed here endlessly.
"Hear me my chiefs. I'm tired. My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever." -Chief Joseph
