      TIPTON COUNTY ADVISORY COMMITTEE
      Dyersburg State Community College - Dyersburg, Tennessee

      Duke Brasfield passed away on Friday, April 9, 2010. Duke was last known to be living in Covington, Tennessee. He received his Juris Doctor in 1975 from the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law at the then Memphis State University. He served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War from 1969 to 1972, with overseas duty in the Philippines. He is survived by his wife Martha. Visitation will be Sunday from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at the First Methodist Church in Covington. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Monday at the Church. The Service of Committal will be held at Sunset Cemetery in Dresden, Tennessee, at 3:30 p.m. Memorials should be sent to the First United Methodist Church of Covington, Dyersburg State Community College, or a charity of the donor's choice.

      A Covington attorney died Friday in a one-vehicle crash in Fayette County near the Tipton County line. Duke Harris Brasfield, 62, was driving a Chevrolet Suburban on Hendrick Road about 12:30 p.m. when the vehicle didn't stop at a "T" intersection with Sinai Drive, according to Mike Browning, a spokesman for the Tennessee Highway Patrol. The Suburban struck an embankment, went up a hill and caught fire at some point. Witnesses pulled Brasfield's body from the vehicle. A coroner will investigate whether Brasfield died while driving, rather than as a result of the accident. The crash site is south of Mason, between U.S. 70 and Interstate 40, and about 40 miles northeast of Downtown Memphis. Brasfield was the husband of 25th Judicial District Chancery Court Chancellor Martha Brasfield. He had been the Tipton County attorney since 1985 and also was attorney for the Covington Industrial Development Board, said Bruce Petty, budget and accounts director for county government. Petty said Brasfield was well known across the state and well liked. "It's a shock to everybody," he said.
