Eulus “Lump” Blackwell was born May 13, 1950, in Cincinnati, OH. He was the fourth of seven children born to the late Clinton and Annabelle Anderson. Lump attended Cincinnati Public Schools and graduated from Withrow High School in 1970. He also attended Southern Ohio College.
Lump accepted Christ at an early age and was a member of Jerriel Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend A.L. Goodwin.
Lump was a member of Prince Hall Masons for over 25 years and thoroughly enjoyed attending the Grand Session and Potentate Balls. He loved engaging in conversations about politics and history. Lump was a massive football fan who always cheered on his Ohio State Buckeyes and Cincinnati Bengals. He had a love for quoting Dolemite and reciting great riddles. He enjoyed dressing up in vibrant colors. Lump had two childhood friends, Howard Edwards and Jimmie Triggs, who remained his friends throughout his life. He also shared an exceptionally special relationship with his nephew Charles “Tudda” Blackwell.
Anyone who knew Lump was moved by his kindheartedness, tickled by his humor, and lifted by his vivacious personality. If you knew Lump, you knew some of his conversations included colorful phrases like “come si come sa” and “ macht nichts”… yes, that was Lump!
