I am the daughter of Ward and Irene Guilbert of Gila Bend. I remember well when you lived in Gila Bend! My sympathy to all of you. Lynelle Guilbert Brant
Sincere sympathy to all the family. We remember your visit to us many years ago when our families were all young. Both our children have now left home. Our daughter lives in Dublin and has four children. Our son, who has been working in L.A. for several years, will be moving to New York in May. We heard of Tim's death from Auntie Betty in Kenmare. We would like to make contact with you if any of you come to Ireland. Michael Galvin,(Tim's first cousin) firstname.lastname@example.org

You lost a husband-a father-a grandfather etc and I lost a GREAT friend.Tim once said to me. it is important to do the right thing but it is more important to know the right thing to do. For over 50 years, I have watched him follow those words and admired him for it. He was a true gentlemen and a FINE man.I will miss him

Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you. Although I have been out of touch for many years, I still remember Mr.Creedon and was so saddened to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time.
Sincere sympathy to The Creedon Family; what a gifted gentleman he will be sorely missed but not forgotten...we know you are in heaven now looking down on all of us...R.I.P...Nora Falvey Zilliox
I have fond memories of Tim Creedon during his time in Tucson as head of Valley National Bank. As the director of The Sunday Evening Forum from 1979 to 1984, I was responsible for fundraising for this community program series. Tim was always affable, genial, and supportive. He never turned me down, and on behalf of the Bank, helped sustain the organization through his donations. He will be missed as the community leader he was, both here and statewide.
With sincere good wishes to his family,
My Condolences to the Creedon family. I remember Mr. Creedon when I worked at Valley National Bank from 1976 to 1991, and thought he was a kind and respectful person. May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
So sorry to hear of Tim's death, I have fond memories of him visiting Kenmare, may he rest in peace. Sheila Falvey, Templenoe, Kenmare.
This Obituary speaks of a man God must have said "Good and faithful servant well done". Don my prayers are for strength and encouragement for you and your family. Didn't know your Father but I know you and your sister and its easy to see why you are both wonderful people. God Bless!
My sincere condolences to Joan and all the family. What a beautiful obituary. I had no idea of all his many accomplishments. Tim was so humble,caring and loved his whole family. He was always jovial and he was my Kenmare connection and kept up with his family back there.He was the best lector at OLPH, we missed his beautiful Irish brogue when he moved up North.
Well done good and faithful servant and may God hold you in the palm of his hand. Slan.
My sincere sympathy to Joan and all the family. Tim was my Kenmare connection at OLPH church, where he was the best lector with his beautiful Irish brogue. He stayed current with his Kenmare roots and family back there. He was a humble,caring and loving person, and I miss him. What a beautiful obituary, I had no idea of all his accomplishments.
Well done, good and faithful servant.
Slan agus Beannacht (good bye and God Bless)
Tim was my close comrade and a personally dear friend since we served in combat in Korea. Tim was a true hero! He was platoon leader of a machine gun platoon and never shrunk from visiting his troops, checking their fields of fire and personally encouraging them. Tim was hit terribly in the back with multiple mortar fragments but refused to be evacuated. For a 19 year-old Irish kid when I first met him, he was an inspiration for we native Americans. I loved him.

My sincere condolences to the entire Creedon family. This has to be one of the most beautiful obituaries I have ever read, about a very fine man. I had the pleasure of attending Jr. High and High School with John. Although it's been MANY years since then, I would like to send a big *hug* to him and to the rest of the family. My thoughts are with you all during this difficult time.

John, Don, Bev,
I read last night of the passing of your dad. I knew him to be a man of accomplishment, but did not realize the full extent of all that he did. He served his family, his community, and his country well. My heart goes out to you and your family.

Our thoughts and prayers to all of the Creedon family.
Such a wonderful man. I worked for VNB for 23 years and met Mr. Creedon several times. He was always down to earth and humorous.
Mrs. Creedon, please accept my heart felt sympathy in the loss of your husband. You were a great influence to my son, La Mont. We believe God will help you through this difficult time. Gwen Adams
Tim, above all, as they'd say back home, You are a darlin' man.
There is not a new star in heaven, there is a constellation. Our prayers are of you dear Creedon's.
I am thinking of you and your family.
It is so very sad for me to learn that Tim has passed away. I had known Tim for over 65 years. Tim was my Boy Scout Master in Winslow, AZ. I credit Tim with the moral code that I live by today. He was a great influence on my life as a young boy that carried over into adulthood. I had the greatest respect for Tim and admired him for what he believed in and what he stood for in his life. Tim was a real hero of the Korean War and highly decorated. I too am a veteran of the Korean War but never met up with Tim during that war. I had the great pleasure of participating in the annual veterans day celebration at Garden Lakes School with Tim. I always looked forward to seeing him, talking with him, reliving our young days together, and remembering the Korean War. Tim was a gentle man and a gentleman. He epitomized the good citizen, veteran, and all around good guy. I shall never forget this gentle soul. May God keep him in the very palm of his hand forever.

Dear Joan and Family,
Tim was one of the finest men I've ever met - so kind and gentle. My thoughts an prayers are with you during this very sad time. May your fond memories of him sustain you now and always. With deepest sympathy, Paula Jensen
I have fond memories of Mr. Creedon working at Valley National Bank. He was a man of excellent character and very genuine. My sympathy for your loss.
I remember Tim as a young girl visiting my mother, Virginia White, a long time Valley Banker, at home office. I knew him later on when I went into banking. He was always a gentleman in every sense of the world and respected by all. His lovely Irish accent warmed the heart ... blessings to his family and I know that Tim has gone on to a place where he still will be of service.

Have many found memories of working with Tim in Casa Grande & Joan making Irish stew on ST Patties Day. One of the best I ever worked with. He always cared about his employees and the customer. The world was made a little better by him.
Dean, Joan, and Family, I for one can only say, WHAT A GREAT MAN, SUCH A FINE PERSON, AND MOST OF ALL A VERY DEAR FRIEND, he will be missed by so many people. I will always remember, those early calls I use to get from "Tim" when he was traveling to Phoenix for meetings--he would say, Claudio, it's me on the road again.
Tim was a great man, a great banker and a great leader. I have found memories of working with him at Valley National Bank. My condolences to his family.
Dear Joan...In our religion we believe that we live on in the hearts and minds of those who love us. In Tim's case that will obviously be for a long time. He was a special person and I am glad that you had 58 years together, but so sorry that it isn't more. Know that our prayers for Tim and those who loved him are winging their way to God.
Bev and Steve Weckstein
Tim will always be remembered by me as one of the finest gentleman I ever knew. He'll be missed by all who knew him. My deepest sympathy to all the family.
