I have many fond memories of my relationship with my great friend and colleague, Dr. Blamer......he was my mentor and supporter for 28 years while at MCC.....my entire family recalls our great times together in Indian Guides, with his entire family at Higgins Lake, and with the PE staff and others at all of the after MCC game parties....He was a wonderful man, someone you could always trust to give you his best thinking, and a man of his word.......a great teacher and administrator at MCC for many years.....he will always be remembered for his contributions to the college, the community, and the entire country!!!!! He will be missed!!!!!! Howard Hughes

I met Coach Blamer as a Flint Junior College freshman when I took a golf class from him in 1961. I followed his stellar career after I left Michigan in 1967 and spent the next 40 years in higher education, mostly in Kentucky. I did have an opportunity to visit with him during this time. His coaching accomplishments at FJC and Mott CC were superlative but I was also impressed by his academic career, earning a doctorate and eventually becoming V.P. for Academic Affairs at Mott, the top academic position at the college. Throughout his career his was a gentleman of the highest order.

Mr. Blamer was my bookkeeping teacher at Flint Tech. He signed on as a coach at Flint J.C./Mott C.C. the same year I went there as a student. Mr. Blamer was my late husband's and my customer when we owned Higgins Lake Hardware. Dr. Blamer and his wife attended many of our '56 Flint Tech reunions held in Grand Blanc. He will be fondly remembered by so many of us.
