A great man went home to be with the lord today.
James Carol (JC) Blackwell passed away peacefully in his sleep on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at White Oak Manor Nursing Facility.
JC served 3 years with distinction in the United States Army from 1956 to 1959. The honor and patriotism he learned in the army never left him as family and friends will attest. He worked hard to support his family and his work ethic could never be questioned. He took pride in all the work he did whether on the job or around the house.
It has been said by many that they could not find one negative thing to say about JC. No truer words have ever been spoken. He was well loved and respected by all who knew him. He will be greatly missed. God gives us the assurance that we will see him again one day in heaven. What a day that will be.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Cleo Blackwell of Sunny View, NC.
He is survived by his wife, Carolyn Blackwell; two sons, Jeffrey (Jennifer) and Steve Blackwell; grandchild, Megan Blackwell; a sister, Revonda Siegfried and many wonderful friends.
A Celebration of Life Graveside Service with military honors will be held 1 PM Saturday, September 28, 2019 at Big Level Baptist Church Cemetery with Reverands Freddie Siegfried and Danny Siegfried officiating.
Donations can be made to Hospice of the Carolina Foothills.
Sanders Funeral Home of Columbus, NC.
