Homer Lamar Blackwell Jr. 68, passed away on January 30,2014. Homer was born on May 18, 1945 in Yazoo City, Mississippi. Homer lived life to the fullest. He was a brilliant businessman and transformed Blackwell Bail Bonds in Pueblo,|
Colorado, to become the most successful and dominant bail bond provider that Southern Colorado has ever seen.
Homer was crazy about his family; he lived life for his children Dennis Blackwell (Lynette) and Janice Titus (John). His grandchildren were the apples of his eye, Steve Titus and Trevor Blackwell often put Pop on the spot questioning who was his number 1. His granddaughters, Britney Titus and Taylor Blackwell couldn't do much wrong either. They loved to
aggravate their grandpa as much as he loved to aggravate them. His presence in their lives is one of our greatest losses.
When Homer's wife Diane passed on May 21,2010, a big part of Homer passed. He often told us he couldn't wait till the day he could be with her in Heaven. The Lord answered his prayer on January 30,2014, to be with the love of his life.
Homer was preceded in death by his wife Diane Blackwell, his father Homer Blackwell Sr. and his mother, Gertrude Blackwell.
He is survived by his sisters, Linda Blackwell and Susie Wagner, as well as, many nieces and nephews.
Life will never be the same without our hero and role model to guide us through the ups and downs that life bestows upon us.
We love you Dad and Pop.
Private family services have been planned.
