Steven G. Creeden
August 19, 1953 - July 3, 2023
Steve Creeden was an easy going, charismatic husband, father and Pappy. He left this world suddenly on July 3 at the age of 69. He was the only son of Dorsie and Lavona Creeden of Kingsville, Texas. He graduated from Kingsville High School and Texas A&M University where he was in the Corps of Cadets Hellcat 8 Squadron. He and his wife Ronell recently celebrated 48 years of marriage. They were high school sweethearts who spent the past 30 years in Lafayette, LA enjoying the culture, community and dancing the nights away, together. He was the general manager of Cox Communications (formerly TCA) and spent his last 18 years of employment as a consultant for LUS Fiber helping to start up the city's Fiber to the Home project. Steve was a leader on numerous boards and groups including: Kiwanis Club, Lafayette Education Foundation, Krewe of Bonapart, Boys Scouts of America, Aggie club and many others.
In addition to his wife, Aggie buddies and friends, Steve leaves behind two children, Andrea Diaz and her husband, Everett, and Chris Creeden and his wife, Tanya. He was the “Happy Pappy” to 10 grandchildren, Haleigh, Cody, Hannah, Carson, Grace, Jacob, Brylee, Allegra, Emma, and Jacob, who will cherish memories of Pappy in his tie-dyed shirts out by the pool or telling stories. He was a great cook, strong leader, hunter, fisherman and could foxtrot your shoes off. He also leaves behind a slew of Creeden family stretching from Sublette, Kansas down to Florida and many states in-between.
Steve never wanted a funeral, but instead had requested a celebration of life on the bank of the Guadalupe River, where he spent countless summers canoeing and camping with his lifelong friend Millard Locke.
Steve was the life of the party and was always ready to make new memories. His family will cherish the great memories made together while here on Earth.
