I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I used to have Courtney and Brian in daycare when they were in elementary school and the one thing I remember about Mr Creekmore was how much he loved his children..again, I'm sorry for your loss.

I met "Skeet" first at the Regional Social Studies Fair at Northeast Louisiana University. He was a very interesting man. Then a year or so later he came in my store looking for a Banjo to purchase. I told him we had met before, and he remembered the entire conversation. I am so sorry for the loss of this man much too early in life.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I was introduced to Dr. Creekmore during the Fall of 1995, during my Freshman year at NLU/ULM when I became one of his "babies" in the NCEC Special Ed. Degree Program. Little did I know the impact and imprint he would have on the rest of my life. His Philosphy of educating students with disabilities has help the world of education develop "Best Practices" that are used nation-wide today and will be for a long time. During my career, I have called him several times for advice and he was always willing to take my call and was happy to hear from a former student. Words can never described the person that he was or the impact that Dr. Creekmore has had on the world of education in our nation. He was the most positive and "peachy" person I have ever meet. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dr.Skeet was my advisor back in 2001 for many years. The first time I met him I had my baby daughter with me. He was so gentle with her. He asked me her name and when I told him Courtney Elizabeth, he had the biggest and brightest smile ever and shared that was his daughter's name. After that we became close and he became my counselor more than my advisor. I always told him he was a speical father figure to me. He was so sincere listening and caring about what was going on in my life personally along with academically. He became a dad I always dreamed of having. In fact, he began telling me, "I'm your daddy here on campus!" LOL...He was such a positive influence for me. He taught me so much about life. From being a spouse to a parent to just being myself and it's okay to be. It's truly an honor knowing him and I will always be grateful for him having such a huge impact in my life. God Bless you Dr. Skeet and thank you for being my "daddy on campus!"

Skeet was one of the first people I met when I was hired at ULM and he was always a consistent supporter of my progress as a professor in the CEHD. He was a valued colleague and will be missed.

Nancy and family, so sorry that we cannot be there with all of you at this time, but we are with you in spirit. John and I remember Skeet as a wonderful man and we have fond memories of sitting behind you both when Addison was newly born. He had such fun with her and occasionally he'd even share her with us. We needed those baby hugs so he was most generous. :- He will be missed dearly by all of us at CCBC. You will all be in my prayers in the coming days. May the Lord give you comfort and peace and joy in your memories of a well loved husband, father and grandfather. John and I send our love and prayers.
Gerald left a message on May 7, 2013:
Dr. was a great teacher and supporter of athletes. Having played on the first basketball team at NLU to play in the NCAA Tournament in 1982, he and I would talk about the good old days when I returned back to ULM in 2002. I came back to pursue my MAT and took the inclusive education class under him and I came to appreciate those with special needs because of DOC. My prayers and sympathy are offered to the family. May the peace of knowing that he knew God, comfort you in your time of bereavement.
Megan Jefcoat left a message on May 7, 2013:
I never had Dr. Creekmore as a teacher but we crossed paths during my collegiate years at ULM and during my years as a member of the staff. He was just one of those guys you never forgot and had a shining personality. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you! He is ULM Warhawk/NLU Indian that will be truly, truly missed!!

Kathy Brumfield left a message on May 7, 2013:
I worked with Dr. Creekmore as his secretary for the "Best Practices Institute" for many years at ULM. He is and always will be one of the most compassionate people I've met in my life. He was a true and loving family man, always speaking of his beautiful wife and wonderful children. He said to me once, "Kathy, the most important thing in life is family." Work was important to him, but he put family first. This world has lost a great and wonderful person. God bless you Nancy, Bryan and Coutney, you're in my prayers.
Drew Fluke left a message on May 7, 2013:
Dear Nancy and family, Cathy and I are so sorry to hear of Skeet's passing. He was certainly larger than life and his accomplishments and influence attest to that. His knowledge and passion for the education and welfare of ALL children was so motivating to those of us who knew him, worked with him, and learned from him. Thank you for sharing him with us these many years. You will all be in our prayers in the coming days.
