My sincere condolences to the Blackmon family and friends for your loss. No doubt Mr. Blackmon lived a long fulfilled life and his family will miss him dearly. Hopefully you can draw comfort from Gods word, as I have, where he promises us that there is going to be a resurrection and that we can be reunited with our loved ones once again - right here on the earth. (John 5:28,29; Psalms 37:9,10) If you’d like to have more comforting thoughts from Gods word, and his plan for our future, please visit the Bible based website - jw.org.

Dr. Blackmon took care of me growing up as a child in Lake Village. Seems like I was always getting a stitch somewhere! He was always kind and compassionate and brightened the situation with his sense of humor. He was one of the early influences in my life in the pursuit of a medical career. In fact, I have been back practicing medicine in my hometown of Lake Village for 20 years in the same clinic where he once roamed the halls. Prayers and condolences to his family family

I first met Charles at Hillcrest Medical Center on about June 28th, 1968. He and Mary Ann lived in the next apartment to me and my wife. Charles and I were interns at Hillcrest for one year. During that time Mary was small and barely walking. She was baldheaded and her parents were constantly worried if she would ever grow hair. Charles loved to duck hunt. He helped me pick out my first shogun - a 12Ga Remington 1100 semi-automatic which I still hunt with today, mostly doves. I think of him fondly every time I see that shotgun. I must tell a funny story... another intern with us was Nick Moorad. He kept begging us to take him duck hunting. He said he knew how to shoot a shotgun but had never been duck hunting. One afternoon we 3 were able to get off and went up to Lake Oologah just North of Tulsa where someone Charles knew had a duck blind already set up with decoys out. It was cold with a couple of feet of ice around the edges of the lake. We launched our borrowed boat with a small 7.5hp Evinrude outboard and headed out. Just before we got to the blind, there was a large dead tree. Nick insisted that we drop him off to hunt in that tree. Charles and I tried to talk him out of it but he adamantly insisted to get in the tree. We eased the boat up to the tree and Nick climbed up a few limbs and said he was good. Charles and I started toward the blind. A teal was flying over in the stratosphere but Nick shot anyway. The teal must have had a heart attack because he could have never hit it. In any case the teal came fluttering down, bounced of a few limbs and hit Nick in the head. He fell in the water gun and all and went out of sight. We were only about 10 yards away. When we got to where Nick went under he was standing up but under water. Nick had a lot of hair. Charles and I grabbed his hair and pulled him up into the boat, without capsizing thank God. Nick was cold and shivering. Charles and I wanted to go to the blind and hunt but decided Nick's life was worth more that continuing to hunt. We went back to the landing, put Nick in the vehicle, turned the heat on high and loaded up the boat. We all laughed about it a lot as our internship year went by. It was my pleasure to have interned with Charles. He was a great doctor and an even greater man.

Mary and Doug, Larry, Brett and I were extremely saddened to learn of your loss. As excellent a physician as he was, he was also an exceptional father. Brett has so many wonderful memories of times with him and Doug...he always seemed to be available to them. We will always remember his big smile...and heart. May our Lord hold you close during this difficult time.

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Blackmon for several years in the Emergency Room at St. Francis Medical Center. When I graduated nursing school in 1989, I started working there. Dr. Blackmon was one of the ER physicians. He was so smart. I just adored and respected him. He took the time to teach and mentor all of us nurses. If I am a good nurse today, it is largely part of his doing. He had an incredible bedside manner with his patients. He made sure that he actually sat down--and I mean SAT DOWN to look patients in the eye--to go over test results with them. That is a lost art form today in the world of medicine. I pray that he is in the loving arms of Jesus right now. My prayers go out to all his family, friends, and colleagues. Thank you, Dr. Blackmon, for all your years of service. You will be missed but never forgotten!
