He was born on January 30, 1971 to Oscar Blackwell and Linda Blackwell. Graduating from Davie High School in 1989, he was a CDL truck driver known for his skills as a master auto mechanic and sawyer. He was a former Hicks Farm employee until he decided it was time to use his skills as a mechanic and then went into business for himself. He liked to make people laugh. Even when times were tough or bad for someone, he always found a way to make people laugh when they wanted to cry.
