of Bartlett, TN
May 3, 1943 - February 14, 2020
Quinton Richard Creekmore, 76, of Bartlett, TN, went to the Lord on February 14, 2020, in his home. We rejoice in the fact that he is face to face with his Savior, and are grateful that his is no longer experiencing pain and suffering. He was born on May 3, 1943, to Melvin and Zela Creekmore, in Elaine, AR. Richard was preceded in death by his parents; his loving wife, Anne Creekmore; and his two brothers, Alfred and Elbert Creekmore. Those left behind to cherish his memory, are his two daughters, Sarah Atkinson (Jarrett) and Susan Watford (Jeff); his twelve grandchildren, JJ, Grace, Katie, Savannah, Liz, Ben, Ashley, Will, Madelyn, Kyle, Owen, and Daniel; his five brothers, Melvin Creekmore (Anna Jane), Delbert Creekmore (Frances), Preston Creekmore (Velma), Walter Creekmore (Judy), and Dean Creekmore (Anne); and his sister-in-law, Susan Creekmore. Richard was a longtime member of Grace Chapel Primitive Baptist Church where he enjoyed fellowshipping with the Saints of God. He served in the US Army for four years, and began his career as an over the road truck driver. He drove a truck many years and earned the affectionate nickname of ''Blockhead.'' During his retirement, he enjoyed spending time with his many friends, family and grandchildren that he loved dearly. We are thankful that he is now reunited with the love of his life, Anne.

I am so saddened with the passing of my cousin, Richard. He was one of my favorites. Always had my back and the back of many others. I am happy though, that his suffering and fighting is over. RIP, Richard. Love, Kitty Sue.
Your HHS yearbook quote, "Speech is great, but silence is greater". Richard, your life of respect of others spoke volumes. Thanks for a lifetime of friendship. You are missed. Ping
