Gospel preacher. He spoke at the 6th Annual Bible Lectureship at Freed-Hardeman College in 1942.

Creacy
On November 24 E. G. Creacy of Horse Cave. Ky., fell at home suffering a broken hip. He was hospitalized the same day and had surgery on November 27. His recovery from the surgery was satisfactory and he showed signs of improvement until he developed pneumonia. He passed away Sunday, November 30, at 5:00 A.M. He bid farewell to his faithful wife and a host of friends in Christ to keep the divine appointment of death from which no man can escape. Emmett Creacy was born in Hart County, Ky., November 9, 1897. Early in life he became a Christian and began preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ at the early age of 17 years. Over a period of sixty-one years he became known as one of the greatest evangelists and debaters of the church, traveling In Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, West Virginia, and Tennessee. He was also an effective writer of several tracts and made many contributions to a number of religious papers published by brethren. Services were conducted December 2 in Horse Cave. A fervent prayer was presented by Allen Phy and the sermon by the writer. I had been instructed and baptized by Brother Creacy when I was fourteen years of age. Brother Phy also offered some words of consolation at the graveside. Paul Smith closed the service with a prayer. The faithful In Christ turned from the graveside with the high hope in their hearts. "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit that they may rest from their labors: and their works do follow them." --- Joseph H. Cox. Gospel Advocate, Dec. 25, 1975, 835.
