November 13, 1949 - October 18, 2021
Edgar Leon Cretin, Jr. passed away on October 18, 2021 at his home in Covington, LA. He was born on November 13, 1949 in New Orleans, LA to the late Edgar Leon Cretin and Ruby Louise Blum Cretin. Eddie was the beloved husband of Freda Nethery Cretin for 34 years. He was the loving father of Christine Cretin Brouillette (Kris), Edgar L Cretin III (Liz), Christopher E Cretin, Kurt Thomas Cotton (Ruthie), Stephen J Cotton (deceased), Blake Noël Cretin (Nikola) . Eddie was the proud grandfather of Anna Brouillette, 21, Evan Brouillette, 14, Grant Cretin, 21, Luke Cretin, 19, Madeleine Cretin, 22, Jackson Cretin, 21, Daisy Rose Cotton, 7, Lilly Belle Cotton, 4, Kershaw Cotton, 2, Blaze Cretin, 2, and Killian Cretin, 1 year old. He was the brother of Charmaine Cretin (Vickie) and Darnelle Levy (Mike). Eddie was a man of great strength, integrity and character who ultimately succumbed to the vicious hand of mesothelioma. With humble roots in Laplace, LA, the dream of being an entrepreneur and a self-made family man blossomed into a career of serving the communities around him and enhancing lives spanning decades. Eddie was first and foremost dedicated to Christ, his wife and children, followed closely by his friends, employees, business associates and life-long customers. Outside of running a renowned residential homebuilding business, he enjoyed the simple things in life: a lover of his children and grandchildren’s activities, an outdoorsman, an inventor, and accomplished snow skier. There was no problem he couldn’t solve. He will be missed by his family, his friends, and the community at-large. Relatives and friends are invited to the Funeral Service at E.J.
