Spokane Valley Pastor Remembered In Monday Service

GREENACRES, Wash. – A Spokane Valley pastor who was shot outside his home last week was remembered as a community leader who loved God as much as his garden during a service held Monday morning at his former church.

W. Scott Creach moved to Spokane after being raised in Western Oklahoma where he will be laid to rest later this week. Creach's family shared that, "Scott began doing pastoral supply work in the Inland Empire Baptist Association shortly after settling in Spokane. His grandparents had raised him in the church and in a Christian home and when he was 24-years-old he accepted God's offer of forgiveness."

Shortly after he moved to the Inland Northwest, he built a greenhouse on his Spokane Valley property that became the foundation for his plant farm and nursery which grew larger than seven acres.

Creach was shot and killed by a Spokane Valley Police Officer on Thursday night after the officer responded to a report of a prowler in the area. An altercation occurred shortly after 11 o'clock at night and Creach was shot with a single bullet.

Police identified the officer involved as Deputy Brian Hirzel, a veteran law enforcement officer with more than a dozen years of experience in California, Idaho and Washington.

The shooting remains under investigation by the Spokane Police Department and Washington State Patrol. Department policies require City detectives to investigate County fatal shootings and vice versa when a law enforcement officer is involved.
