It is a common sentiment that time will heal all wounds. However, the sudden and tragic passing of brothers Carl Blossomgame Jr. and Colin Brannon may be an exception to that sentiment. The brothers were killed when their vehicle went over the mountain on Highway 263 just north of Yreka sometime during the week of February 15, 2021. Carl Gerrard Blossomgame Jr. was born to Carl Sr. and Deborah Blossmgame on January 29, 1998 in Arcata, California. Carl grew up an excellent young man – he worked hard as a wildland firefighter and was a talented singer-songwriter under the pseudonym “MunroE.” Carl had a beautiful soul and he was always making people laugh. He had the ability to cheer up anybody who was feeling down, and was one of the most giving people you could come across. Carl’s father passed away when Carl was a child, and as such, Carl made his two sons his top priority – everything Carl did, he did for them. Carl’s hopes, dreams, and plans came to end in the accident. Carl is survived by: his mother, Deborah Formosa of Lynchburg, South Carolina; his siblings, Cheyenne Blossomgame of Yreka, Rick Lester of Happy Camp, Donald Lester of Eureka, Tyrel Brannon of Eureka, Robert Shuff of Texas, and Tasha Kahoalii of [PLACE]. Carl leaves behind his children, Carl III and Jeremy “Remy.” His nieces Nikita Lester of Eureka, Shelby Garlington of Alabama, Makoa, Nathaniel, and Elijah Lester, all of Eureka, and Robbie Shuff of Texas. The boys’ mother, Deborah, is raising funds to send the boys back to South Carolina for a burial. She says that “losing 2 children at once is a worse pain that anyone should ever experience,” and that “people keep saying that they’re in a better place, but they’re not. Their better place is here: breathing and living with us.” Deborah extends her profound gratitude to those who cared for them, assisted in the search, and those who have reached out in the days since they were found. Your compassion does not go unnoticed. In accordance with the COVID -19 guidelines, the family requesting face masks and social distancing be observed by relatives and friends during all visitations at the home, 995 Lesane Pressley Road, Lynchburg. Graveside services will be held 12:00 noon, Friday, March 5, 2021 at Brannon Cemetery, 995 Lesane Pressley Road, Lynchburg. The procession will leave the home at 11:30 a. m.
