CREACH FAMILY STATEMENT: We have asked the media to present our statement in its entirety, without editing. We trust that they will honor our request.

The family of Wayne Scott Creach would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for its overwhelming support during this extremely difficult time following his death in the parking lot of the Plant Farm.  We appreciate your prayers and thoughts and ask that you continue to remember us during the next difficult days.

The services for Dad will be held on Monday, August 30th at 10:00 am at Greenacres Baptist Church where Dad pastored for 40 years.

We would also like to take this opportunity to say that while we are in shock and extreme grief, we know that the deputy who was involved in this tragedy is also dealing with his own personal crises.  Our family extends our compassion and our prayers to him today and in the future.  We know he will carry the memory of Wednesday night and this tragedy with him for the rest of his life.

Dad loved his family and the people of this community – he was a pastor, business owner, employer and friend.  His passing will leave a huge hole in the lives of many.

We want to thank the media for their kindness and the many words of support and compassion.  We hope for your continued attention and kindness during the next days and months.

With sincere gratitude – The Creach Family
