Sean Creighton

March 17, 1969 - April 1, 2016


Sean passed away suddenly on Friday April 1 in the Cowichan Valley.  He is predeceased by his father William Allen Creighton.  He is survived by his mother Sylvia, sister Eleanor (Bruce) niece Erin Murray (Mark) and several aunts, uncles, and cousins in BC, AB, and NS.   Although Sean had his struggles, friends always remember him as the person who was willing to volunteer for something without a complaint.   He volunteered with the Navy League and the Maritime Museum of British Columbia. He was an avid postcard collector, who was always eager to show you his latest postcard.

A Funeral Service will be held at H.W. Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre, 5285 Polkey Road, Duncan, BC on Saturday, April 9th  at 1:00 PM

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Eleanor and family, I offer my condolences.
Sean visited the Community Policing office from time to time. He enjoyed looking at the collector RCMP pins and commenting about when your dad was a volunteer.

Sincere condolences for the families loss. He is now at peace.

From: Kellie Turner
Relation: Friend

Years ago I knew Sean as a great character who loved to hang out at the Brig in Maple bay. Whether doing odd jobs for Brian, or driving the Rowing Club bus, Sean was always trying to be helpful. Through the years I would see Sean go by on his bicycle, always with a wave and a ‘hello.’ In March I attended a Haida Gwaii film at the United Church in Duncan. Sean was greeting the arrivals. The youth I was with explained to Sean that she recently found out that her relations are Haida. With that Sean gave the youth a Masset Village pin – her tribal village! Sean’s small gift made the youth’s night extra special. Thank you Sean! Good to know you. My condolences to Sean’s family.

From: Bob and Suzanne Anderson
Relation: From Navy League

We are saddened to hear about Sean’s passing. Unfortunately we missed the obituary in the newspaper or we would have attended his service. We knew his dad from Sea Cadets and Sean from Navy League Cadets. Whenever we saw him around town, he always stopped to talk and asked about our family. He was a genuinely nice guy. Our condolences go out to his family.

From: Chris and Rani
Relation: Friends

Chris and Rani send our condolences to Sean’s family. We only just heard about Sean’s passing and feel terribly sad that he is gone. Sean did gardening work for us and helped us move house a few years back. He has been in and out of our lives over the years and we wish we had spent more time with him. Sean was always up for a good chat and ready to help out with anything. We will miss him.
