Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at Goggans Chapel, 1911 N. Frances, Terrell, with a military burial at Rosehill Cemetery with the Rev. Larry Davis of College Mound Methodist Church officiating.
Blackie was preceded in death by his mother, Bill Wilson; father, Jessie L. Blackstone; and his first wife, Virginia Carter Blackstone.
Blackie is survived by his wife, Bennie Sammons Blackstone; three stepdaughters, Sylvia Roney and husband Benny Parrish, Rachael Roney and husband Art Throgmorton and Cathy Roney; four step grandchildren; five step great-grandchildren; and many cousins.
Taken from the Terrell Tribune, Sunday, Dec. 3, 2000, written by Alison Walker:
“James Blackstone of Terrell, a retired warrant officer of the United States Navy, was honored Oct. 19, 2000, with a tribute on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.
The tribute, led by Congressman Ralph M. Hall (D-Rockwall), commended Blackstone for his naval service dating from June 1934 to 1954. During the tribute, Hall stated, ‘His experiences span the globe and form part of the fabric of our nation’s history.’
Blackstone was involved in three separate wars, Japan’s invasion of China, Spain’s civil war and World War II.
In September of 1939, President Roosevelt declared a national emergency that became a full-blown undeclared war until the declaration of war on Dec. 7, 1941. Blackstone was involved in that undeclared war until reassignment to the Pacific Theatre war with Japan in 1942.
Blackstone was awarded seven medals, two for his service in China, one from the United States Government and one from the Nationalist Government of China.
He received a field commission shortly after the invasion of Okinawa. After the war he requested to be returned to his former rank of warrant officer.
Blackstone retired from the Navy in 1954 and was later accepted for employment with the General Services Administration Public Building Service Design and Construction division. His job title was mechanical-electrical engineer GS-7. He retired from GSA in 1973 as a GS-12.
An excerpt from Hall’s tribute, that was recorded in the Congressional Record states, ‘James is now in his 80s, and has taken the time to record his enlisted experiences and to share those with me. He has lived a life of integrity and has fought the good fight. He is a man of honor who was devoted to his country and to his fellow citizens.’
In conclusion, Hall stated, ‘James Blackstone is a great American and a real American hero — and to call him my friend and to honor him today.’”
Friends desiring to do so may make memorial contributions in memory of Blackie to Rosehill Cemetery or College Mound Methodist Church.
