Lloyd Edward Creevan passed away Monday, May 2, 2016 at Rooks County Health Center in Plainville, Kansas at the age of 86. He was born on March 2, 1930 to the late Victor and Florence (Wenzl) Creevan in his grandparent’s, John and Elvira Creevan, home. He was baptized at the St. Bridget Catholic Church near Axtell and grew up helping his father farm. He attended County School through the Eighth Grade and graduated from Axtell High School with the Class of 1948.
After graduation, Lloyd continued to farm for a couple of years before moving to Wichita, Kansas to begin work at The Boeing Company in October, 1950. In October, 1951 he enlisted in the United States Air Force. After a brief stay at Lackland AFB in San Antonio, he was eventually stationed at Sheppard AFB in Wichita Falls, Texas. He completed Basic Training and A&E Mechanic School and spent the next four years teaching aircraft and engine mechanics. He was honorably discharged as a Staff Sergeant in October, 1955.
Lloyd met Kathryn Mae Garvert in 1954 and they were united in marriage on November 22, 1955 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Plainville, Kansas. Together they moved to Stockton, Kansas where they were blessed with, and raised, three daughters, Denise, Donna, and Diane. He worked at the Rooks County Grain Elevator for eleven years, before going to the CO-OP Elevator, where he retired on March 2, 1995. He was a member of St. Thomas Catholic Church and a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus.
Lloyd is survived by his wife Kathryn Creevan of Stockton; daughters Denise Sasse and husband Ivan of Gaylord, Donna Eck and husband Jay of Beloit, and Diane Voss and husband Jon of Stockton; brother Gerald Creevan and wife Joan of Wymore, NE; and grandchildren Matthew Eck, Brittany Eck, Michaela Sasse, Tristan Sasse, Scott Voss, and Shawn Voss.
He was preceded in death by his parents Victor and Florence Creevan, brother Gregory Creevan, and sister Helen Kabriel.
Lloyd lived every day of his life in service to God, his family, and his friends and neighbors. From time spent with children and grandchildren to taking care of Kathryn in later years, no sacrifice was too big, or deed too small, that he would not gladly give of himself for the sake of others. Our lives are blessed for eternity beyond measure because he loved and cared for us so much.
