Michael (Flathead) Blanchard
Blanchard, Michael (Flathead) 1944 ~ 2012
A Celebration of the life of Michael "Flathead" Blanchard will be held on April 14th, 3 pm 8160 Rosemary St, Commerce City. Weary of reading obituaries noting someone's courageous battle with death, Mike wanted it known that he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctors' orders and raising hell for more than six decades. He enjoyed booze, guns, cars and younger women until the day he died.
Mike was born July 1944 in Colorado to Clyde and Ethel Blanchard. A community activist, he is noted for saving the Dr. Justina Ford house from demolition and defending those who could not defend themselves. He was a Republican delegate, life member of the NRA, founder and President of the Dead Cats MC. He loved music. Mike was preceded in death by Clyde and Ethel Blanchard, survived by his beloved sons Mike and Chopper, former wife Jane Transue, brother Stephen Blanchard (Susan), Uncle Don and Aunt Cynthia Blanchard(his favorite); Uncle Dill and Aunt Dot, cousins and nephews, Baba Yaga can kiss his butt. So many of his childhood friends that weren't killed in Vietnam went on to become criminals, prostitutes and/or Democrats. He asks that you stop by and re-tell the stories he can no longer tell. As the Celebration will contain Adult material we respectfully ask that no children under 18 attend.
Any doubts he requested being buried face-down?
“Baba Yaga” is an evil witch character from Russian folklore. I wonder what the connection was.
Loved it, LOL! That’s a guy who has no regrets!
The Museum began as the personal hobby of Paul Stewart , who, as a child playing cowboys and Indians, always had to be the Indian because, "There was no such thing as a Black cowboy." After Mr. Stewart reached adulthood, he met a Black cowboy - a man who had led cattle drives at he turn of the century - and at that time, vowed to unearth all the material he could on other African American western pioneers."
That is awesome. I’m starting work on my own version tomorrow. God bless Flathead and his partying friends.
What an uplift and a laugh. Thank you for sharing.
Well, if you have anything to say within your obit that’s along the lines of Flathead’s life it will be worth reading, hopefully not any time soon.
Isn’t it a little anal to point out prior threads, especially when some posters here obviously missed those posts? Not that there is anything wrong with being anal.
>>>Isnt it a little anal to point out prior threads
No, it’s not.
What’s anal is an inability to use FR’s search function and see if maybe a topic you want to post about has an existing thread you could comment on rather than starting a brand new thread.
No, you are anal. When something is repeated, just move along down the road. Or, try to come up with a post that’s valuable to the group.
Speaking of “just move along”... Physician, heal thyself.
It’s my thread.
>>>Its my thread.
Big whoop. Starting a thread gives you ZERO privileges beyond your own tiny mind.
And if you want to run the show, get your own place and quit trying to run this one.
And another thing...
All I did above was post links to existing discussions on the same topic - there are people here that appreciate the cross-reference. Apparently, you’re not one of those. Get over it, your thread and all.
But if I decide it is MY thread, trust me, it will be.
