Judge Frank Creede, Jr. was one of the giants of our legal community. He was a dedicated, hard working jurist with a strong commitment to the law and justice. Upon his retirement from serving as a full-time judge, he received the Fresno County Bar Association's highest honor, the Bernie E. Witkin Lifetime Achievement Award. I am glad that the Fresno County Law Library was renamed for Judge Creede in that year, too. It was my honor to have known and appeared before him. May he rest in peace.
