Blatchford, Michael Homer: Co-Founder

ARIZONA, Flagstaff – A public service was held for MICHAEL HOMER BLATCHFORD, 51, on December 2, 2009, at Flagstaff. Interment followed in Tall Mountain. Michael passed away November 28, 2009.


Mike devoted his life to helping others with his work as co-founder and executive director of ASSIST! To Independence, a non-profit Native American owned and operated independent living center. Mike was a true inspiration to everyone he met through his advocacy work for Native Americans with disabilities across America. His own disability did not hinder his commitment to enrich other lives. He was a lifelong and die-hard Broncos fan, a fry bread fanatic, enjoyed the abundant love of two families and truly loved life. Mike was also dedicated to visiting every tribal casino across the US and Canada. (Navajo-Hopi Observer, December 2, 2009)
