CREELMAN, Kenneth Hugh October 16, 1927 - May 29, 2019 It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Kenneth Hugh Creelman, beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and uncle. Surrounded by loved ones, he passed away peacefully at the University of Alberta Hospital on May 29, 2019, at the age of 91. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Marjorie, in 1998, parents Ralph and Irene, as well as six siblings. Ken is survived by sons Gary, Wayne (Cheryl), and Kim; daughter Candice; grandchildren Cara (Andrew), Marla, Jessica (Ryan), Christopher, Kendra (Joe), Cody (Diana), Cassie, Jackson; 16 great-grandchildren; and brother Maurice. Twenty-six nephews and nieces will sorely miss their Uncle Ken and his stories. He also leaves behind friends and other family members with whom he enjoyed visiting. For Ken, family was always first. Nothing mattered more to him than to ensure he was doing the best for his family. Remarkable in his line of work, he never missed a Christmas at home with his children, even going as far to shut a drilling rig down for the Christmas holiday. Despite the displeasure of some of his bosses, Ken insisted. Family came first. Ken spent most of his working life drilling oil and gas wells around the world including the Atlantic Ocean, North Sea, and Persian Gulf. He was a pioneer in offshore drilling, starting with the Hibernia Oilfield off the shores of Newfoundland. The stories he could tell about his adventures were amazing. As per his wishes there will be no formal service at this time. At a later date the family will have an interment service when his ashes are laid to rest alongside his wife's at the Devon Cemetery. At that time, it is hoped all family and friends will attend with a social to follow to share their stories of a good man.
