Hundreds attend funeral for Deputy Alton Creech

Posted: Updated:

Family, friends and fellow officers said goodbye to Deputy Alton Creech Tuesday morning.

A funeral was held at First Baptist Church on Walton Way.

Deputy Creech crashed his motorcycle on I-20, last Thursday. He died from wounds in the hospital.

"He was a mentor and a role model," said David Aycox, Deputy Creech's brother-in-law. "He had a very large family, as you can see with the Sheriff's Department, the Navy. He was more than that to me though. He was a big brother. Like one I never had."

Deputy Creech was buried in Hillcrest Memorial Park.
