Blanchard, Michael "Flathead"
1944 ~ 2012
A Celebration of the
life of Michael "Flathead" Blanchard will be held on April 14th, 3 pm
8160 Rosemary St, Commerce City. Weary of reading obituaries noting
someone's courageous battle with death, Mike wanted it known that he
died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctors' orders
and raising hell for more than six decades. He enjoyed booze, guns, cars
and younger women until the day he died.
Mike was born July 1944
in Colorado to Clyde and Ethel Blanchard. A community activist, he is
noted for saving the Dr. Justina Ford house from demolition and
defending those who could not defend themselves. He was a Republican
delegate, life member of the NRA, founder and President of the Dead Cats
MC. He loved music.
Mike was preceded in death by Clyde and Ethel
Blanchard, survived by his beloved sons Mike and Chopper, former wife
Jane Transue, brother Stephen Blanchard (Susan), Uncle Don and Aunt
Cynthia Blanchard(his favorite); Uncle Dill and Aunt Dot, cousins and
nephews, Baba Yaga can kiss his butt. So many of his childhood friends
that weren't killed in Vietnam went on to become criminals, prostitutes
and/or Democrats. He asks that you stop by and re-tell the stories he
can no longer tell. As the Celebration will contain Adult material we
respectfully ask that no children under 18 attend.
