The wife and reported mistress of a New Jersey man found a very forward way to honor Leroy “Blast” Bill Black, a man who literally didn’t get the chance to take his secrets to his grave.
According to the Philly Voice, Black of Egg Harbor Township lost his battle with lung cancer on Tuesday (August 2). His family and friends found out the traditional route through the newspaper Press of Atlantic City, but they also found out some new details behind Black’s life. On Friday, (August 5) the paper ran two obits; one by his widow Baretta Harrison Black and his “longtime girlfriend” Princess Hall. The placement might have been odd, but a representative from the Greenidge Funeral Homes claimed both women were aware of the postings. They were also placed separately because “the wife wanted it one way, and the girlfriend wanted it another way.”
His funeral, which will be held in Atlantic City, should be one to remember.
