I had the distinct honor of getting to know Jack when we were raising funds to throw the 140th Delta Kappa Epsilon International Convention in Austin; the first ever in Texas. Jack, together with Ben Love, wrote to the alumni, and the generosity that flowed from that effort helped to create an outstanding, Texas style, convention.
Many will remember his generosity to so many things dear to his heart, but not many may know about his steadfast devotion to dear old DKE.
I felt blessed to have encountered and learned from such a spirit during his time on the earth.
Apart from his well known accomplishments & generosity, it was such a pleasure to know Jack personally! We have all lost a kind, thoughtful, wonderful man.
So sorry to have missed this service. Everyone loved Jack Blanton and he will be greatly missed. Prayers for Elizabeth, Jack, and Eddy. So many wonderful memories to behold.
Ginger, Lou and I are so very sorry to hear of Jack's passing. He was such a wonderful man. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the entire family. Love, Linda Lorelle and Lou Gregory
Ginger, our thoughts and prayers are with
you and the family at this time.
