James Blandford In Memoriam

Who was Jimmy B ? He wasn't a genius, inventor of a miracle cure or worldly famous, never made history, but if you were lucky enough to get to know him; he became your friend for life.

To us he was affectionally known as the King. Jimmy wasn't perfect, no one is; so he loved his Natural Ice beer. His favorite sayings were " Brothers from another Mother," Trampa and God loves you and so do I. His good friend was Fred Ramirez.

Jimmy did a singing tribute to Elvis Presley for over 50 years. His Karoke buddies were Joe Murial, Randy Calderon and Ish Cardona. Survived by his daughter; Lisa-K, ex wife, Karen Collard. He served in the U.S. Navy and was a Vietnam veteran. Services are pending.

Your "Brothers from another Mother", Robert, Lorenzo, Richard and Steve O
