Omar Darnell Blackwell, son of Starlee Selby Blackwell and Richard Blackwell, was born on November 29, 1974 in Wilmington, Delaware. He departed this life on Monday, November 19, 2018 at Bayhealth Medical Center.

Omar received his early education in the public schools of New Castle and Wilmington, Delaware and graduated from Howard Career Center in 1994. Omar received an Associate Degree in Nursing from Delaware Technical and Community College and went on to receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Wilmington University. At the time of his death, Omar was a student at Walden University’s Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner master’s degree program.

Omar held several jobs during his lifetime including Take-A-Break, Inc., Comcast, Dover Behavioral Health, Meadowwood Behavioral Health as an RN and Verizon where he had been employed for the last 24 years as a Splicing Technician.

In his spare time, Omar enjoyed spending time with his daughters, cooking his favorite meals, eating at his favorite sushi restaurants, watching Sunday football and watching his favorite game show, Jeopardy. Omar will be remembered for his hard-working nature, his seemingly never-ending wealth of knowledge, his warm personality, generosity, and great sense of humor.
