James Adams Bean of Crossville died Dec. 26. He was 86. Bean lived much of his life in Cumberland County, with the exception of his legal studies and his time in the U.S. Air Force. After four years in the military, including one in Korea, he pursued his education, and graduated from the YMCA Night Law School. He was licensed in 1962, and opened Bean and Bean Attorneys with his brother in Crossville. He was appointed City Judge in 1978 and was elected to the post of General Sessions, Family and Probate Judge in 1982. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation, The Muscular Dystrophy Association, or charity of choice.
