I got to know Mr. Creed while working in insurance when I lived in Buchanan County. He was the most honorable and kind gentleman I had ever met. Always such a pleasure to wait on, you could tell he was a Christian from his actions and tone of voice that he used. He will be missed by all that knew him and may God wrap His arms around each of you and provide the comfort you need in the coming days ahead. The family and community has lost a great friend in Mr. Creed.
