He lived his sixty-eight years of life to the full. His association with his colleagues brought him the utmost gratification, and students and professional associates honored and revered him.
He was always liberal with his enormous fund of knowledge. In this regard, he constantly added to his information by spending much of his free time in searching literature apropos his professional interest.
Dr. Blackmore is survived by his widow, two sons, and two daughters. His body was laid to rest in his home community of Grovehill, Ohio.
