I have been a college math professor for forty years, thanks to Dr. Blakney. He was the professor who taught me math, but more importantly continued to encourage me even when I was struggling to find my place in the world of academics. I will never forget what he told me after I flunked a class with him because I missed too many classes. He said, "It's not a matter of your ability, just your discipline. But you'll figure it out." When completing my four year degree after six years, he called me into his office and said, "Apply for graduate school. I have an assistantship for you."

Above all Dr. Blakney was the man who taught me how to care for students. I will never forget that.

Just learned about your loss. I worked for Dr. Blakney back in the 70's when he chaired the Department of Mathematics at UT. He encouraged me to go back to school which I did. He was such a class act. I am so sorry for your loss.

I am truly sorry to hear of the passing of Dr.Blakney. I had the honor of meeting him through their son, one of my dearest friends, Will Blakney. He and Mrs. Blakney welcomed me into their home and treated me like family. I feel blessed to have met him. My condolences to his entire family.
