Joe Blackman passed away July 9, 2020. We are pretty sure he is now riding his Harley Davidson of his Bi Ole White Mule, Crystal, the two things he missed doing during his illness.

He was born in Pennsylvania and later moved to Arizona where he was the sole miner at the world’s richest amethyst mine in the four peaks wilderness. After digging for the stone, he backpacked it down the mountain seven miles on his back. He hitchhiked all over the United States making more friends and having more adventures. He rode to Sturgis on his own when he was seventy one years old. He was seventy six when he left us for another adventure. He was a fine man and a great character, and he will be greatly missed. He was a strong man and endured two heart breaks of his life – the death of his beloved son Little Joe, and his sister Susan.

He leaves behind a loving family, wife Nicci of almost forty seven years, a son France (Tia), a daughter Brooke, two granddaughters, brother Greg (Sandy), sister Wendy (Jim) along with nieces and nephews. Ride Safe Joe.

Services for Joe will be at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the Joseph C. Blackman Memorial Fund and may be sent in care of the Martin-Becker-Carlson Funeral Home, 414 NW 3rd, Abilene, Kansas 6741.

I love my big brothers. My most vivid memories of Joe were from early childhood. He was always very protective of me and Susie. He saved me from a fox in the woods in Mink Hollow, a school mate who was getting a little too friendly and Once treated me to an ice cream sundae when I found his fiancé’s diamond ring in a field. His life was full of adventure, often dangerous which kept things exciting around the house. He was a one of a kind , larger than life character. Rest In Peace Joe. I love you. Wendy

I will miss my childhood friend and hero for ever. We were closer than most brothers because we lived in a very remote area and we only had each other. Also, because of his bad hearing, I was his ears. Your loving brother, Greg

I would also like to add that Joe also had a sister (Nellie) that he never got to meet. She lives in Sao Paulo, Brazil and because of WW II, events changed several lives. He would have loved her as do Sandy and I. Greg
