David Blakeney Obituary
David E. Blakeney

1946 - 2014 FAIR HAVEN, VT. David Earland Blakeney, 68, died unexpectedly at his home in Fair Haven, Vt. on Nov. 22, 2014. He was born on Apr. 25, 1946, in Tunbridge, the son of David Blakeney and Madeline Fletcher. He attended school in Tunbridge and later earned his GED. He maintained residency throughout Vermont working as a bus driver for several school districts and later for public transportation until 2007. He married Brenda (Couillard) on Aug. 1, 1970, and had two children together, Tim and Judy. They later divorced and Dave married twice more, unfortunately unable to find his soul mate. Dave enjoyed hunting and working in the woods, especially during "the turning of the leaves." He loved live music, dancing, and socializing with family and friends. He had a zest for life and a passion for traveling and meeting people always curious where the next trip would take him, not fearing the unknown of the journey. He was a good man, a character, some would say, that was known wherever he went And we all will miss him ! Dave is survived by his sister, Jessie Mundell, two brothers; Raymond, John and his wife, Violet and their families with many nieces, nephews and cousins. Also by his children and grandchildren, son, Timothy, his daughters, Kelsey, Kaitlin, and Kristina, and his daughter, Judith Emmons and her husband, Jeremy, and their children; Jarrod and Jaylynn. He was predeceased by his parents and sister, Marlene Cipperly, and brother, Thomas Blakeney. SERVICES: A memorial service and reception is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 30, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. at Moose Lodge 1233 in Bennington, VT. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Dave's life with prayers and stories. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Moose Lodge for Mooseheart and Moosehaven endowment funds.
