Mr. Thomas Riley Creswell, 86, passed away on Saturday, June 29, 2019, at St. Francis Hospital in Memphis, TN.

Mr. Creswell was born on April 18, 1933 in Quitman County, MS to The Late Lydia Vera Sprouse Creswell and Daniel Raiford Creswell. He proudly served in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict. Mr. Creswell spent his early years running routes as a delivery driver before ultimately finding retirement from automotive sales. After retirement he went to school to become a casino card dealer and enjoyed his time meeting new people in that role. Above all, Mr. Creswell was a loving family man who made sure his familiy was taken care of. He is remembered for always wearing a smile as he often told jokes. He was a member of Whitehaven Baptist Church in Memphis, and he will surely be missed deeply by those who knew and loved him.

Mr. Creswell leaves behind his loving family which includes his son, Paul Kevin Creswell of Collierville, TN; three daughters, Teresa Robin Creswell Marsh of Piperton, TN, Janet Lynn Creswell Farrar of Colorado Springs, CO, and Anita Kay Creswell Stubbs of Collierville, TN; six grandchildren; and twelve great-grandchildren.

Graveside services will be held with military honors on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at 2 pm in Chapel Hill Cemetery in Pope, MS with Rev. Jim Meredith officiating. Visitation will be held on Tuesday from 11 am - 1 pm in Dickins Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Chapel Hill Cemetery Fund.

Dickins Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

At this sorrowful period in your life, please accept my sincerest condolences for the death of your loved one. Reflecting on the divine promises found in the Bible will give you the hope and strength to keep going until all of God’s promises are fulfilled. (John 5:28, 29; Isaiah 33:24; Isaiah 45:18; 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.)

My condolences to the Crestwell family. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Thomas. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
