Obituary

Steven A Blackman Sr born March 19th, 1955 of Orlando Florida by way of Bronx, New York departed this earthly life on August 8th, 2019.

Steven was predeceased by his parents Ashton and Vernice Blackman and his sister Nadine Blackman.

Steven is survived by his son Steven A Blackman Jr and wife Nikole, ex-wife Judy Blackman, daughter Cheryl A Beverly, grandchildren Alysia, Mickayla, Vanessa, and Ashton, and great grandchildren Amira and Aliyah.

During his early years, Steven attended Bronx Community College where he obtained his Bachelor’s Degree, City College where he obtained his Master’s of Science in Education, and Long Island University where he obtained a second Master’s of Science degree. The overwhelming dedication he had toward his education led to 18 years tenured in education including time served as a Teacher, Counselor, Principal, and a College Adjunct Professor.

Aside from spending time creating lasting memories with friends and family, Steven had a host of hobbies including cooking, fishing, bowling, gardening, sports (little league coach), reading, and camping. He was well known for starting the first predominantly Black Boy Scout Troop (Troop 8) in Bridgeport Connecticut.

Steven will be missed but not forgotten. If he were here to comment, he would certainly say: 

“This Too Shall Pass”

 

A celebration of Steven’s life will be held 8/30/19 at 6:30pm:

Real Life Christian Church

2413 S. Goldenrod Rd. Orlando, Florida 32822

    Steven, 24 years together makes for a lot of memories. C.C. and I were recalling so many, we laughed about some of your shenanigans, were sad when thinking about others. I am just glad for the life we had and the love we shared.

    The kids are having a tuff time. Their hearts are broken . I ask you just to be with them always until they can see you again.

    Love you ??
    Ju Bear.

    Steven, did you feel the love shared to you last night. Jr. put together a Celebration of Life fit for a king. You were honored by so many who knew and loved you. Pastors Mark and Mitch eulogized you with honor and respect. When it was finished, we wrote messages to you and sent them via lanterns that were ignited and floating thru the skies above.
    You are missed by us all and the promise is to reunite as a family, as you would want us to be.
    I know you are watching over all the loves of your life.

    Love you,
    Judy

    You left without warning. You were tired, and God knew that. He beckoned you on to a place where there is no more suffering or pain. Where you can watch from afar and smile at the sight of your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
    I wasn’t ready. None of us were ready. It was not supposed to be like this.
    Sleep in Peace Steven...you remain forever in my heart ??.

    To Judy Blackman and Family
    My condolences to you all.
    I write this with a very heavy heart I will miss Mr. B.
    He was my best teacher ever of Stamford High School, and my class of 1987. A great man and friend. One who invited to into his home and would treat you like family for life. I was sad to my heart when I saw him last in 2017 how his illness had taken so much from his life of the man I knew and grew to love like a father, but it couldn't take his handsome smile. And that's what I will remember about him the most.
    Love to the family and people who knew him well.
    R.I.P. Mr. B

    Love JoJo
