Creighton MacConnell: Children’s Education Fund

Donation protected

In the vast expanse of the ocean and the boundless skies above, Captain Creighton MacConnell was more than just a man; he was a beacon of strength, adventure, and love. As a devoted father of six, an outstanding United Airlines Captain, and a beloved surfer, Creighton's life was a tapestry woven with the threads of dedication, passion, and unwavering commitment to his family. His unexpected passing has left a void in the hearts of those who knew him, but it has also sparked a powerful wave of support to ensure that his children's futures remain as bright as the sun setting on the horizon after a perfect day of surfing.

Creighton's days were spent navigating the skies, riding the waves, and working tirelessly to provide for his family, but his true joy came from watching his children grow and thrive. He dreamed of a world where they could chase their dreams and carve their own paths through the sands of life. Now, in his memory, we, his friends, colleagues, and fellow surfers, are coming together to turn that dream into a reality.

Through this GoFundMe campaign, we aim to establish 529 college savings plans for Creighton's children. These plans will serve as a lasting tribute to his legacy, ensuring that his passion for adventure and love for his family live on through the gift of education.

Every donation to this campaign is more than just a contribution; it's a ripple in the ocean, a wave of support, and a promise to stand by Creighton's children as they navigate the currents of life ahead. Together, let's rally around Captain Creighton's family and show them that they are not alone in this time of loss.

Though Captain Creighton may no longer ride the waves or soar through the skies, his spirit of adventure, resilience, and love will forever echo in the hearts of those who knew him. Let's honor his memory by ensuring that his children have the opportunity to ride the waves of education and chase their dreams to the highest peaks.

Thank you for your support and for helping us honor Captain Creighton's legacy in the most meaningful way possible. Together, we can ensure that his children's futures are as bright and boundless as the ocean he loved so dearly.
