Francis Earl Blincoe, Junior


Francis Earl Blincoe, Junior passed away on August 9, 2006 in Stockton. His ancestors entered the USA through the Louisville Kentucky area, before moving to California. Earl, a fourth generation Californian, was born in Visalia, CA in 1918 and raised in Tracy. He started his career in the trucking industry during World War II in the Oakland shipyards hauling military supplies. Earl worked on construction of the Alcan Highway in Alaska. On returning to Stockton in 1943, Earl formed the Blincoe Trucking Co. since renamed BJJ Co. Earl with son, Jim, ran a fleet of 100 trucks specializing in bulk and liquid edible products.

Earl was active in the community and the trucking industry for more than 70 years. His restoration of a 1946 Kenworth displayed in the Hays Antique Truck Museum in Woodland is a lasting tribute to his passion for the trucking industry.

Our thoughts are with his wife Helen, sons, James and John, seven grandchildren and sisters Maxine Davidson and Barbara Walter.
