Judge Edgar Phillip Calhoun

Judge Edgar Phillip Calhoun, retired, passed away on August 6, 2012 after a prolonged illness. He was born July 2, 1931, on a tenant farm in Scott County, VA.

His family moved to Kingsport, Tennessee in the mid 1930's where they lived until 1946 when his parents purchased a grocery store in Silvacola on the old Bloomingdale Road, near Blountville.

Edgar graduated from Blountville High School at the age of 16. Unable to attend college he enlisted in the United States Navy after graduation. He served on the LST 391 as a radar man second class. His tour of duty was extended when the Korean War began. After the Navy, Edgar attended East Tennessee State College one year as a full-time student then joined what is now the Kingsport Times-News as a general reporter and worked his way to Managing Editor of the morning edition, was the Sports Editor for one year and Sports Columnist with the byline, Phil Calhoun--this was because there was a prominent businessman with the name Edgar. During this time, Edgar continued to take college classes part-time and graduated from East Tennessee State.

At age 28, he left the newspaper business to study law at the University of Tennessee, where he met his wife, the former Billie Ann Helms. After graduating from the College of Law in 1961, Edgar accepted a job in the State of Tennessee Comptroller's Office in Nashville. After passing the Bar, he became an Assistant State Attorney to State Attorney General George McCanless. In 1967, he returned to Kingsport to practice law and work part-time in the Sullivan County District Attorney General's office. A few years later, he left private practice to work full tim in the Attorney General's office. On April 1, 1976, he was appointed Criminal Court Judge of Sullivan County, a position he held until his retirement from the bench in August 1994.

Edgar was very active in the Indian Springs community. He served as the first president of the Sullivan Central Athletic Boosters and held that position several times. He served on the Board of the Sullivan County Fair and was a member of the Indian Springs Ruritan.

A devoted husband and father, Edgar loved his girls more than they ever realized. When his daughters expressed an interest in swimming, Edgar became a fixture at the pool, acting as meet starter and official for his daughters swim meets both at Central and with the Kingsport Barracudas. Countless weekends were spent traveling to meets around the Southeast. As interests changed, he attended many basketball games, dance recitals and cheer competitions as well.

Prior to his retirement, Edgar loved traveling to the "country" to hunt, with both gun and camera, the elusive wild turkey. He enjoyed visiting with friends and family. While Edgar did travel abroad and throughout the South, his first love remained the hills and mountains of East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.

He was preceded in death by his parents Echol and Emma L. Calhoun.

Judge Calhoun is survived by his wife, Billie and four daughters, Melanie L. Calhoun, Kingsport; Valerie Calhoun Elkington and husband John, Memphis; Laura Calhoun Mount and husband Parker, Baltimore, MD; and Jennifer L. Calhoun, Fayetteville, NC; three grandsons, Fletcher Elkington, Griffin Elkington, and Beau Calhoun Elkington, all of Memphis; one granddaughter, Aubrey Mount, Jacksonville, FL; two sisters, Edith Hayter and husband Roy, Kingsport; Betty Latture and husband Don, Franklin; two brothers, Glenn E. Calhoun and wife Kaye, Blountville; Don Calhoun and wife Margaret, Clinton; several nieces and nephews.
