Our thoughts and prayers are with Barbara Creek, and her family, as they mourn the recent passing of their husband, father, and grandfather. A lifelong farmer, Bruce graduated from Short High School in Liberty, IN in 1962 before moving to the family farm in Benton County. He and wife, Barbara, were married in January of 1964, recently celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary.
Along with involvement in his church and community, Bruce was also a private pilot for 40 years! In his memory, the Foundation has proudly established the Bruce Creek Memorial Fund. Contributions to the fund will be used to award scholarships for young Benton County students who plan to pursue a degree in agriculture or aviation.
Those who wish to give a memorial gift may mail a check, payable to Benton Community Foundation, to PO Box 351, Fowler, IN 47944 or donate online
with a credit card. Posted February 27th, 2014
