Ronald Dean Blankenship was Born in Morris Illinois and leave's behind a wife, 3 Sisters , 1 brother and 3 children, 7 grandchildren & 8 great grandchildren. Dad was an talented guitarist and singer. I remember as a little girl all the nights he and his friends jamming sounded just like Johnny Cash and loved singing his songs. His favorite artists were Johnny Cash, Elvis & Merle Haggard.
Dad was a very funny man. Always quick with smart-aleck response for every situation.
If you knew him you knew his music.
