George Spencer Blackmore

George Spencer Blackmore of Clawson, MI died died February 19, 2018 at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. He was 59 years old.

George was born July 29, 1958 in Detroit, Michigan to George J and Helen (Briggs) Blackmore. At the age of 15 he began his culinary career. He loved to cook, play baseball and most of all music. As a teenager, George began to play the drums. Later in life he began to play guitar. He loved to sing at karaoke. He married his wife Denise in 1980 and they had a son, George, in 1985. He was so proud of his son and his accomplishments in life from watching him become an Eagle Scout, graduating from college and law school.

George lived by the motto live your life to the fullest because you never know if it will be your last day. He certainly did that in his life. He was always a happy, laid back kind of guy who wanted everyone to live life, be happy and “rock on”!

A Celebration of George’s life will be held Sunday, March 11, 2018 2pm-5pm at the Clawson/Troy Elks Lodge, 2549 Elliott Dr, Troy, MI 48083.

  3. Please accept our condolences, on behalf of my wife Heather and the entire Don Crawford family of Dallas. We all love George and Denise and welcomed them in our home many times. We enjoyed George’s drum and guitar playing and his singing, especially on Sundays at the Gin Jam, where all the musicians love George. He will be missed, and will never be forgotten. God bless Denise and the Blackmore family. Rock ON, brother George, in that great band in the sky!

  4. I met George in a “jam band” we both played in on Saturday afternoons. Because we both played drums, sometimes we would set up two kits and play together, other times he would play guitar and sing while I played drums. We have all missed him since he left Dallas, and I was shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. I will fondly remember him singing out song changes to me on songs he knew better than I. Wishing peace to his family.

  5. So sad to hear to hear this, I am a singer/guitar player in a band that played with him. He could play drums, sing at the same time (not easy) and was fun to be with.

  6. As noted above, word just reached the musical group that George was a part of here in Dallas. George’s presence made a real difference in our Saturday afternoon sessions – he was a very positive force who had the effect of raising the bar for each of us, and this wasn’t limited to just music. He quite truly brightened everyone’s day simply by walking into the room. All of us are better for having been around him. Denise and George, we are very grateful to you for sharing him with us while he was here in Texas!
