A celebration of the life of Michael "Flathead" Blanchard will be held on April 14, 2012 at 3 p.m. at 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 in 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, a lifetime member of the NRA, Founder and president of the Dead Cats MC. He loved music.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
He is 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; cousinsand nephews, Baba Yaga can kiss his ****.
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.
