Where do I begin. Such a caring but strong person. Took me in and taught me to work hard and never give up. At age 16, introduced me to the plumbing and sewer field passing flyers for a Chicago based company. J&C sewer service. We would get dropped off in a neighborhood and picked up for lunch and checked on through the day until the flyers were all gone. Then we started to ride along with him and become helpers. Soon we had our own truck to hand dig sewers and repairs. This went on for years until Blanton and Sons opened. He taught us to treat our customers like family as he always did. Soon we became licensed plumbers and currently hold that same license. Dad, thank you for all of these years of guidance and teaching us humility. I owe all of my experiences to you. Glad we had time to catch up last month at Jr’s farm, I will never forget after hunting , waiting to see your TV on to stop in and chat. There will always be a huge void in my life now without you , mom and Doria here but glad the memories will never leave. Glad you are now together with your maker , wife and daughter and the pain and suffering is over. Love you( do you understand what I am trying to say)
