He retired from the city after spending 35 years working at the Columbia Wastewater Treatment Plant on January 1, 2021 due to a recurring cancer diagnosis.
Creedon had a passion for sustainability; he took up gardening and later on added chickens for a supply of fresh vegetables and eggs. He was well known as a cycling enthusiast, riding his favorite electric bicycle the then 13 miles it took roundtrip to work and home.
He was a seeker of spiritual knowledge and understanding throughout his life. He attended many churches over his life; in Columbia he sat with a Buddhist group, went to Quaker Meetings and was a member of Unity of Columbia.
He was always up for a debate in front of Coffee Zone with his favorite cup of coffee. Debra and Creedon spent many Saturday mornings enjoying conversations there.

He’s also survived by his grandsons Jaden, Devin, Bronx, Luca, Felix, and Sage, parents Duane and Flo, brothers Curtis (Andrea) and Craig (Nancy), nephew Isaac, and nieces Chloe (Mack), Rebekah, and Sara.
