Obituary for Ernest Wayne Blanton

Ernest Wayne Blanton
1943 - 2019

On Friday June 21, 2019 our community lost an exceptional member .

Earnest Wayne Blanton of Rush Kentucky has taken his place with our LORD after his recent battle with cancer.

Wayne was a walking testimony for our LORD, a Faithful husband; a Role Model of an outstanding man for his 2 sons, grandson, and family. He showed many friends and co-workers a strong work ethic.

Wayne was a PFC in the Army Infantry 5th missile battalion during the Cuban Missile Crisis stationed in Greenland earning a Good Conduct medal and expert rifle designation. Wayne was a member of the Greenhill Masonic lodge and the American Legion.

Wayne enjoyed working as an Operating Engineer through Local 181 operating heavy equipment and cranes for 33 years. Wayne enjoyed hunting and fishing.

While Wayne has completed his earthly journey; he leaves behind his loving wife Christine; children Ken, Kevin, & Raina; grandchildren Dakotah and Jonathan ; his brothers, Jarold Blanton and Keith Blanton: his sister Brenda Middleton: and his brothers and sisters in blood and spirit.

In Lieu of flowers the Blanton family asks that we celebrate Wayne’s life by donating to the Ashland Community Hospice House, 2330 Pollard Road, Ashland, KY 41102 who treated him with love, care, and respect as he left this world.

Final arrangements for Wayne are made through Kilgore and Collier funeral home in Catlettsburg, KY with visitation beginning on June 23, 2019 between 5:00pm to 7:00pm and funeral service at 7:00 pm.
