Dan Blakemore, past president of Tuesday’s Angels, died last week.

Details are still being gathered as multiple sources tell SFGN Blakemore died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

“Dan was a good guy who meant well and raised a lot of funds for Tuesday’s Angels,” said Chuck Nicholls, Tuesday’s Angels Vice President.

Nicholls said Blakemore was “living in a state of depression” and kept his feelings to himself.

“He didn’t have a partner to come home to and bounce issues off of,” Nicholls said.

On April 12, Tuesday’s Angels President Mike Ross delivered the news in an email to members.

“Dan was a long-term and very dedicated supporter of our mission, as well as a friend to many of us, and we will miss him greatly,” Ross wrote.

Tuesday’s Angels is a Fort Lauderdale based nonprofit, section 501(c)3 organization that provides funding on an emergency basis to men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS.

SFGN publisher Norm Kent called Blakemore’s passing a sad day for the local community.

“Dan was a treasured individual whose contribution to our community will always be appreciated,” said Kent. “SFGN is grateful for the partnerships we forged and the relationships he fostered.”
