Knoxville attorney David Dickason Creekmore died on July 2. He was 75. Creekmore graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Law and held two degrees from the Judge Advocate Generals Law School. He graduated from the U.S. Army's Command and General Staff School and served 26 years in the Active Reserves. A lifelong resident of West Knoxville, he served as General Sessions Judge in Knox County for 15 years. He then served as Town Judge for the Town of Farragut for several years. When the Cocke County General Sessions Judge was called to active duty in Iraq, he served 4 years in his stead. An accomplished writer, he was a columnist for the Knoxville Journal for 17 years. The family will receive friends at Berry Highland Memorial this evening at 6 p.m., and a graveside service tomorrow at Highland Memorial at noon. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Frank B. Creekmore Award at the UT College of Law, the Salvation Army, or a charity of your choice.
