I just found out today that Mr Blackmon has gone to once again be at Genevieve's side. My life was forever changed the moment I met them both and it will always be my greatest pleasure to had known them both. I send my deepest sympathies to Kirk, Bill and Greg, who were always very kind to me. Every time I see a Blackmon Mooring truck rolling down 35, I will smile at the legacy he left for you to continue. I will miss Mr B dearly.

Sorry to be late responding to Mr. & Mrs. Blackmon's passing but heartfelt condolences to the Boys and their family going forward. We are now on the front line of age and end-of-life anticipation and it is a giant encounter. Hope we end in peace surrounded by family as Bill and Genevieve did. Their kindness and support remain strong in my memory.

I am so sad about Bill passing.
He was a wonderful and gentle man.
He was well respected. My deepest sympathy to the boys. The last time I saw Bill was at Pappadeaux with his boys for lunch. I remember thinking "What a great group of guys" he will be missed...

Mr. Blackman hired me right out of college. I worked for him as a manager trainee. He taught me a lot about leadersip. He was a great family man. He will be missed by all of us who developed under his management. My condolences to Scott and the rest of the family!

I only learned of Mr. Blackmon's passing today, but I wanted to say "thank you" for the opportunity that him and Mr Mooring provided me over 30 years ago. He was truly a great man that left a legacy that the entire family can always cherish. I cannot ever remember seeing him without a smile and a word of encouragement. Kirk, Bill and Greg, may you continue to walk in the footsteps that he has laid before you. May God continue to bless you all.

Floppy Blackmon was my Little League coach and I was surprised that such an important businessman would take the time to teach us how to play ball. He always dropped to one knee to talk with us and I cannot recall ever seeing him when he wasn't smiling or laughing. Such a delightful, joyful man. It was an honor to know him. My sincere condolences and prayers to all the Blackmon Family. I truly enjoyed learning more about him in the recent Star-Telegram article. I wish more people were like Mr. Blackmon.

What an absolutely wonderful man. I loved the beautiful article in the obituary; he was, indeed, amazing. Floppy and Genevieve were always a wonderful team and in inspiration to everyone. Les joins me in sending our love and deepest sympathy.

It was a pleasure to know and work for Mr. Blackmon for many years. I remember how excited he would be with a new process or piece of equipment. Our prayers are with the family.

It is sad to see a common name and an interesting man pass away. Every time one drove down Rosedale, his building was on the corner. It is gone now, but his company and steam cleaning, for carpets, etc. I am sure saved many a carpet in his lifetime, my parents carpets included, with three rambunctious kids, growing up. Another familiar person, name, and building, gone in Fort Worth.

i first met floppy at colonial playing tennis in the next court...at a break i asked if he played often and he replied..."this is not tennis; it is a bunch of old men chasing a little white ball..."
that sense of humor is what i shall remember most about floppy...and, that he was a consumate gentleman.
my most sincere condolences at your loss...few men like floppy come along.

My sincere condolences to the Blackmon family. Mr. and Mrs. Blackmon welcomed me into their home as a young man. Mr. Blackmon provided me an opportunity not only to work at a young age but was also as a mentor in the service industry. Mr. Blackmon was always generous by offering numerous individuals a career to include myself which provided me an opportunity to be successful on my own. He inspired me to engage my three sons to work with me and retain a family business.

Mr. Blackmon's fond memories will be with me forever.

Deeply missed,
June 17, 2013
Rest peacefully, you sweet, wonderful man. I will never forget you...I love you!
