He is survived by his parents, Steven and Mamie; his brother, Danny; sister, Kate (Sean) Rice; brother, Tim (Jamie); nieces and nephew, Maddy, Anna, Connor, Jocelynne, and Ellana; many aunts, uncles and cousins; and his girlfriend, Ashley. Creed was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Tom and Elaine Wegman of Rochester, Minn.; and paternal grandparents, Judge Daniel and Janet O’Connor of Portage.
