Crenshaw Sr., Donnie N. "Preacher"  
Minister at six United Methodist Churches, died at age 93. With a glad heart he departed on May 20, 2016 to the eternal kingdom of God. Preacher was a United Methodist minister and a dedicated faithful servant of the Lord. Preacher was born in Bullitt County, Kentucky January 28, 1923, to Clifford and Mary Ann (Manakee) Crenshaw. He was one of eleven surviving children to that union. At heart, he remained a country boy all his life. In his late teens, Preacher became a master welder and built LST's at Jefferson Boat. During that time, he met and married Edna Grottenthaler Crenshaw, who was devoted and supportive for over 70 years of marriage in the home and as a partner in his ministry. During WWII, Preacher was attached to an army railroad outfit as a cook and served in the European theatre, earning several Bronze Stars. His experience as a cook during the war greatly enriched the life of his family and friends. He continued to prepare family meals and feasts throughout the rest of his life. Upon his return from World War II, Preacher earned his GED. Then, through the GI Bill, he enrolled in and graduated from Lindsey Wilson College, and then earned a Bachelor's Degree from Kentucky Wesleyan College. Back when he was a welder at Jefferson Boat, the Lord had called him to enter ordained ministry. Preacher completed his answer to that call in 1952 when he graduated from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He was ordained as an Elder in the Methodist Church in 1952. During his ministry, Preacher served the United Methodist Churches of Kenwood, Brandenburg, Audubon Park, Buechel, Watkins and St. John. All these churches are now in the Kentucky Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Preacher had a very active retirement. Having been raised on a farm, Preacher knew something about a lot of things. He could deal with electrical, plumbing, welding, automotive, and construction issues. He had been a woodworker for a number of years prior to his retirement. He loved fashioning things from wood. He loved riding Harley Davidson motorcycles. He always had a huge garden growing in the summer. But being outdoors as a hunter and fisherman were the joys of his life. He built a hunting cabin in Henry County on a tributary of the Kentucky River to enjoy God's creation year round. The family has a picture of Preacher that sums up this part of his life well. He is on a Ford tractor when in his 80s with his arms spread wide and a huge grin on his face. Preacher loved life and it showed in everything he did. Also, after retirement, Preacher continued in ministry. He attended Watkins Memorial United Methodist Church where he taught Sunday school for 25 years. He also coordinated the Softball Program there for 25 years. The following quote by Preacher sums up his life long devotion to the Lord, "If I had a 1000 lives to live, I'd want to live them as an emissary for Jesus. There is no greater privilege." Amen. Preacher is survived by his daughter Deborah Crenshaw Westbrook (Robert Ashbaugh), son Buzz Crenshaw (Dawn Landreth) and daughter of the heart Jackie Worley (Wes Worley), and numerous grandchildren of the heart. He is also survived by his only remaining sibling Dallas Faye Crenshaw Doerr (J. R. Doerr) and numerous nieces and nephews. The celebration of Preacher's life will be held at Watkins United Methodist Church, 9800 Westport Road, Louisville, Kentucky on May 26, 2016 at 4:00 P.M. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Watkins Memorial United Methodist Church, Camp Loucon Training and Retreat Center, 8044 Anneta Road, Leitchfield, Ky. 42754, or Lindsey Wilson College, Columbia, KY.
