Mr. Mel was such a kind, good man. I remember Vacation Bible School with him every summer, and what a good sport he was about always being the voice of the mascot for the week! He is dearly missed by so many.

I grew up attending Bloomfield Methodist Church. Being wonderfully raised by my mother, Mrs Ann Clark, I had no father-figure in my life, as she and my father divorced when I was 9 years old. While listening to sermons, I yearned for understanding of God as a loving father, always present and supportive. Having no father of my own around, I wondered how that would be. I would look around at the congregation, and my eyes would always settle on Mr Mel Creech. His ever-present smile and loving eyes became the personification of God to me as a child. He was always there at services, always volunteering to help anyone, always like a solid rock of love and caring. I watched the way he treated his own family and others around him. I drew great comfort from knowing this righteous, quiet, and steadfast servant of God . I had the opportunity to tell him this about ten years ago, but wanted to share this memory with his family.

I will always remember my dad as a gentle spirit who loved and lived his life serving the lord. He never had an unkind word for anyone and never met a stranger. He was my example for helping people who needed help and giving to those in need. I can't count the number of times I have asked him to make something for me to use in teaching Sunday school or for a project I would be working on for charity. Know matter what crazy thing I asked him to make, he never told me no and always did the project with a smile. He always had a smile. I will his smile and his hugs. I love you dad and will miss you more than words can say.
