It is with immense grief and sadness for me to announce the passing of our ASC and dear friend Joe “Papa Joe” Blasingame today at 12:05AM.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Carol, son Christopher, and daughter Heather, as well as his many other family members and close friends.

Words fail me to explain how much Papa Joe will be missed. His commitment to our heroes was without exception, heartfelt and a selfless example for all of us to follow.

Mission details will follow.

Our loss is heaven’s gain…………….

Rest in Peace Papa Joe.  We will miss you.  


There is not enough room here to list all my blessings so I will just say I work hard and play hard.  Life has been very good to me and I have many people I would like to call friend.  I would like nothing better than to be able to walk up to you as a friend with a smile and say great to see you.

I truly feel that I served in the United States Military to protect your freedom of speech.  I also feel this gives me the right to smack you square in the mouth for saying something stupid!

Thankyou Papa JOe for the short time i knew you, thankyou for the Tee that you sent, which i have hung up on my study wall, and each time i see it, i think of the man who sent me the Harley tee, a Proud Man, an Upright man, and a Brother, one i only wish i had known better,

I am crying into my keyboard at the moment, wishing i could be there for your send off, I will miss you Papa Joe.

Semper Fidelis is a good motto for Papa Joe, as he was always faithfull to his friends.

Always thinging of you Papa Joe.

Are angels real? We may never know. But we all have to wonder if God's creatures, so full of grace and truth, really watch over us. Do they have feelings? Do they cry? Do they love? Do they get angry? All these things are mysteries to us. But we must believe. For angels are what gives us hope in times of despair.
WE WILL MISS YOU PAPA JOE..

Papa Joe was our  GA Asst. State Coodinator of the Warriors Watch Riders.  He was a staunch supporter of our military, and participated in numerous memorial missions, send off's and welcome home missions for our servicemen and women.

Papa Joe was especially supportive of the Georgia National Guard 121st Bravo Company, based in Covington, during their recent year long deployment to Afghanistan.  Joe quietly and selflessly took on the role of patriarch of the "Black Sheep", assisting many of the families while their husbands and fathers were away at war, providing needed repairs to the Bravo Co. armory facility itself, providing a full Thanksgiving dinner last November for the ENTIRE company in Afghanistan, and doing whatever else was needed to provide help on the home front for this unit and their families.  For his service and commitment, the state of Georgia and the Georgia National Guard presented Papa Joe with the Georgia Commendation Medal in May of this year, the third highest award that can be bestowed on a Georgia serviceman, and rarely awarded to a civilian.

A memorial service is being planned for Papa Joe by his family, the officers and members of 121st Bravo Co., and the Warriors Watch Riders, the details of which will be posted as soon as they are known.  It is expected that Joe's services will be held at the National Guard Bravo Co. Armory in Covington GA.  While Papa Joe was a retired police officer and firefighter, he was not a veteran of the military, and as such his family requests no flag line at his service. But there will be a flagged motorcycle escort for the Blasingame family on the day of the service, and everyone who would like to attend and participate is welcome.  There will be full LEO support.  (The family has requested American Flags only, no branch of service or organization flags.)

Please Stand by......We want to make Papa Joe's final ride a memorable one in his honor and for his family.."Make It Big" as he would say....;(


    Donations in memory of Joe Blasingame can be made to Georgia National Guard Family Support Foundation, Inc., C/O Joe Blasingame, Suite203-C, 5019 GA Highway 42, Ellenwood, GA 30294-3438

    The family requests donations in lieu of flowers
