Remember This?

What ever became of the class of  1951?

Kenneth B. Creasy was born in Barbourville, Kentucky, on October 7, 1932.  He graduated from Willis in 1951 and from Ohio Wesleyan in 1955, then attended a year of grad school at Ohio State. 

Ken taught Social Studies at Willis during the 1957 and 1958 school years.  The political bug got him when he was elected to the Delaware City Council at age 23.  He went on to become vice mayor, a state representative from 1959 to 1972 and a Delaware County commissioner from 1985 to 1988.

He was director of the Ohio Department of Public Welfare from 1977 to 1982, having served as Assistant Director before that.

Ken passed away in June, 1992, of a heart attack.  He is survived by his wife, two daughters, and two brothers.
