Justin Taylor Creed
Age 19, died August 21, 2010, three days past his 19th birthday. A resident of Chester Springs, PA, Justin passed away at his second day of college as a freshman at Fairmont State University, Fairmont, WV, where he planned to study psychology. The cause of his death is currently unknown.
Justin was born in South Charleston, WV, on August 18, 1991. He loved playing football until he suffered a torn ligament in freshman football at Downingtown East High School which prevented him from playing organized football again. He was an avid fan of the Eagles and loved to golf. A 2010 graduate of Downingtown East High School, Justin's favorite pastime was "chillin'" with his friends. Known to all as a kind-hearted young man he put his soul and being into everything that he did, whether it was learning to ride his bike as a child or heading down the "snow luge" he crafted with the other teens in the neighborhood. Most endearingly, Justin always stuck up for the underdog. When his friends were hurt, he was deeply affected. Justin was a loyal friend and had an infectious personality. The consummate politician, he could walk into any room and win friends with his perfect smile, big brown eyes, and soft brown hair.

Justin's mother's last words to him before she left him at college were "I'm proud of you, Honey." May we all remember Justin as a young man whose radiant smile and loving manner made the world a better place.
