River Heights - Our beloved father and friend Wendell G. Blauer "Prune" to most who knew him, died at the young age of 85 on Thursday, April 24. Prune was born Oct. 29, 1928 to John and Violet Blauer, of River Heights, Utah. He was the 5th of 7 siblings. He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings Gwen, John, "Rodney", Wallace "Wally", Blaine. He is survived by his sisters Afton and Karma. His children, Susan, Troy, Jayne, Shawn and Kipp. He was blessed with 15 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Prune was River Heights' one and only Town Marshal. He was also a paperboy, a dairy hand, Pepsi Cola sales rep., Sweets Candy sales rep., the sextant at Providence Cemetery, a "parking marshal" in the Logan Credit Union parking lot. Most all of Prune jobs, if not all of them, was his love for people and meeting new friends. As a candy man he would go to most all the county stores in Northern Utah and Southern Idaho to check their candy racks, but most of the time was spent small talk with his friends in the stores. He was a man who loved sports especially golf, which was a member of the Logan County Club for most of his adult life, or every Tuesday night, would be found down to Logan Lanes bowling in league with his brothers Rod and Blaine. He was an avid hunter and he loved to take his boys up to "Arts Cabin" for the deer and pheasant hunt with family and friends. Prune was a lifelong member of the River Heights Lions Club. He served in every leadership capacity as Lions member. He set a high standard of living to his children with his compassion and care of his many friends, family and neighbors, for he will be missed by all. Many thanks given to all who have responded to Prune's passing, with the out pouring of love given to Doreen and the family. Funeral services have been set for Tuesday, April 29 at 12 p.m. at Allen-Hall Mortuary, 34 E. Center St. in Logan.
