Due to the pending storm the Funeral Service for Donald Blackmore has been rescheduled to Monday, September 26, 2022 at 11:00 am from Moncton Wesleyan Church Life Centre.

Don Blackmore, 83, of Moncton, passed away peacefully at The Moncton Hospital on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. Born in Bell Island, NL, he was the son of the late Roger and Elizabeth (Morgan) Blackmore.

Don had a successful career in business and then at the age of 36, he gave his heart to the Lord and became a pastor. He never really retired from that calling, the Word of God was his life and he lived it to the fullest. He loved Friday morning breakfast at the Homestead with the "Backroom Boys". Sundays at the Wesleyan started at 8:00 am and was the pivotal point in Don’s week. Don was an avid reader of all subjects and loved to watch black & white movies.

Proverbs 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.

Don will be sadly missed by his loving wife, Sandra (nee Cowe); son Andrew (Jennifer); grandchildren, Danica, Jelena, Bailey, Morgan, Shelby, Aiden, Jayla, and Jordan; sisters, Dorothy Furey, Laura Stortz (Orval) and Roslyn Power (Gerald); brother, Walter Blackmore (Cynthia); sisters-in-law Joan Crossman (Greg), Nancy Morris (Steve), Cathy Fulton, Pam Crowe (Rick Kinjerski) and special brother-in-law Jim Cowe (Daphne); as well as several nieces, nephews, and extended family members.

Don was predeceased by his son, Michael; and his sister, Shirley Batten (Alan).

Visitation at Fergusons Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Rd, Moncton (858-1995) on Friday, September 23, 2022 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. A Funeral Service to Celebrate and Honour Don’s life will be held on Monday, September 26, 2022 at 11:00 am from The Moncton Wesleyan Church Life Centre (945 St. George Blvd).
