Dennis Creeden, 59, of Hardin, passed away on Tuesday May 1, 2012, as a result of kidney cancer.
Never one to give up, he continued on with his positive attitude, a huge heart, and good cheer right to the end. Despite his physical limitations and failing eyesight, he was able to convert the entire Great Gospel of John into eBook format.
For those of you who don't know, the Great Gospel documents Jesus' entire three-year ministry on Earth in 25 books of 100 Chapters.
