Earl Blacksher Sr. passes away
Earl Burt Blacksher Sr. passed away Sunday, July 14.
He was the youngest of four children born to a farmer/blacksmith and his wife in Appleby, Texas, and a fourth-generation Texan. His father died when he was five, and his widowed mother raised four children, surviving the Great Depression.
Becoming the principal source of financial support for his mother once his siblings moved away and married, Blacksher quit school after the eighth grade and joined the Civilian Conservation Corps as a young teen.

He retired as a Master Sgt. In 1960 and went to work for the Federal Aviation Administration as a flight controller at the El Paso International Airport.
He retired in 1971 due to a severe arthritic condition of the neck and spine, the result of thousands of hours of flight time at high altitudes and extremely cold temperatures.
Upon retiring from the FAA, he enrolled in El Paso Community College and followed his aptitude as a mechanic and a craftsman; he loved to build and fix things.
He suffered from several physical handicaps in his retirement years, including the fusion of his neck and spine, the near loss and subsequent limited use of his left arm due to a farming accident and finally his paralysis from a fall nearly six years ago.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Willie and Ruthie Blacksher, and his son, Ricky Blacksher.
He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Connie Blacksher; his children, Burt Jr., daughter-in-law Jo, David, Barbara and Scott; grandchildren, Eric, Amy, Ian, David, Alan, Zachary, Amber, Brian, Russell and Alex; great-granddaughter Kennedy Isis; and his sister, Alice Billingsley.
