Dr. Blotner was my doctor for many years. He greeted me with a smile each time I saw him. He was very down to earth. Dr. Blotner was an outstanding doctor and person. Young doctors today need a Dr. Blotner in their hearts and in their relationships with patients. They must be humble as Dr. Blotner was. I earned a Ph.D. in history in 1972. My head and heart and knowledge permeated my teaching young and older students at Northeastern University and Boston University. I wish the young doctors of today would demonstrate their knowledge of medicine along with they are administering their hearts to other human beings. This applies to young doctors and nurses. A sweet smile with sparkling eyes and feet on the ground is what Dr. Blotner demonstrated. I think of his caring heart. Lois D. Wasserman, Ph.D.

Wow just found out so sad my mom had Dr. Blotner for a long time he delivered my brother in 75 and my sister in 81 so I knew him as a little girl and then he became my dr. My mom would drive from Portsmouth Nh to Brookline just for her appointments she didn't trust anyone else. When I moved away I had to find a new dr and it took a long time to find one as he set the standard so high so to his family I am truly sadden to her of your loss he was truly a remarkable person always had a bright smile

I just read this as I have often wondered about him...he was a wonderful and caring doctor, and I was blessed to have had him deliver our daughter in the early 1980's. I remember his soothing manner especially as Lindsay was a preemie...of course, all went as well as he promised. Always in my heart, Deena Frio

Dr Blotner remains my gold standard for physicians - an extraordinary doctor, counselor, old world gentleman. My own debt to him is immeasurable: I am alive today because of him. However belated they may be, I send heartfelt condolences to his family.

I am stunned to hear of Dr. Blotner's passing. He was not only an excellent physician but a wonderful, caring person. He delivered my first two children in 1972 and 1974. After moving away from Boston, I realized how fantastic he was when my new obstetrician came no where near Dr. Blotner's high standards and caring demeanor. I'm honored to have had my first two children delivered by him. I'll never forget this wonderful man who helped me through two difficult deliveries.

Dear family of Dr.Blotner: I am sorry for your loss, he delivered my youngest son Matthew in Boston Women's Lying Inn in 1976 and I appreciated all his kindness and understanding while I was his patient. On my six week visit post partum, As he looked at my son and I said his name, he repeated "mattyhoo" jokingly and smiled at what a "good big baby" he was. I can still hear him, "Loved him and respected him"

Dear family of Dr. Blotner: I am deeply saddened to learn that the world is bereft of one of the finest doctors and human beings I have ever known. He was my gynecologist from roughly 1980 until he retired (when he called me personally to tell me -- I cried). I loved Dr. Blotner. He cared for me through several very traumatic health crises, including breaking the news to me that I needed breast cancer treatment. He always asked if I had time for a mammogram at the end of our appt and he'd send me downstairs and that was that. Until the last time when I was asked to return to his office. He not only likely saved my life but gave me recommendations for the Very Best Doctors in Boston. He always made me feel so cherished not just as a patient but as a young woman. He was kind, respectful, concerned for my overall well-being, and just the nicest man. He would always conclude his examinations by saying "You're perfect." And in that moment I truly believed I was. I'm sure he had that effect on all his patients and I can only imagine the terrible loss his passing is to his family. Oh how he loved his wife and children and grandchildren! We talked about everything and he gave me wonderful care. No matter what decisions I made, he assured me that his only concern was for my health. Honestly, I think he cared for my whole person, and I loved him for it. Offering you my deepest sympathy seems so inadequate. I am so sorry for your loss. He was a great, great man.

I did not know Dr. Blotner died. I just could not believe it. He always wore a smile on his face. He was my doctor for a number of years and I appreciate his dedication, devotion,professionalism
and, let me add, caring about is patients. I wish I could have seen him to say goodbye to him and let him know
what a wonderful person and doctor he was.

One beautiful summer morning, for some reason, I thought of Dr. Blotner. What a wonderful man. Belatedly, I am so saddened to hear of his passing, but seeing this picture and reading all of these posts, only confirms my memories of this wonderful doctor and very kind man.

I, too, had the good fortune of being a patient for over twenty years; both of my sons, now 30 and 34 were brought into this world by Dr. Blotner. On the first delivery night, I'd heard that he and his wife were having Chinese food when we interrupted them for a little boy who longed to be born.

As "older" (in those days) first parents, we were nervous, but Dr. B was so caring, reassuring, and kind. Thanks to Dr. Blotner, our second son was one of the first in Boston to be born without a repeat C-section. Dr. Blotner was the kind of physician that honors and brings honor to the profession. Our (belated) condolences to his family. I know that you will carry him in your hearts forever and am sure that he treasured such a loving family

My son was delivered by Doctor Blotner in February of 1978. The subway was running but the roads were still closed to regular car traffic.(The blizzard of "78) In Boston he was the only practitioner of the method: Birth Without Violence. That son is now in the Army training to be an intelligence analyst. The next two children were actually born at the Leboyer Clinic in Paris. Dr.Blotner was so kind and caring. A truly great man. I am sorry for your loss. He made such a difference in this world. Thank you.

We cannot begin to express the sorrow we felt learning of Kenny's passing, we knew he had retired for health reasons, but was hoping he would play a lot more rounds of golf and have more time to enjoy the family he treasured.
Ken took care of our whole family, mother, 4 daughters, and grand-daughters. If you needed a gyn-ob it was Ken.
I was the lucky one who found Ken and had the priveledge of him delivering all 4 of my children (the last twins). For more than 30 years Ken was always there, always with a smile, a kind word, advise when you needed it, a blood test to get married (cause this one is right for you), refer you to a doctor when you asked (and they where the best in their field), and always gave you hope.

If it was not for Ken's intervention on my behalve for a back problem I may have been parylized, but because he made the calls to get me seen just before christmas of 1997, I had surgery on December 27 and made a full recovery. How do you say thank You?

Just looking at the picture and remembering how truely wonderful a person,doctor,husband,father,grandfather,and so much more. We miss him

We thought the day he retired was hard, this is so much harder.

We hope your family finds peace in his memories, as we do!

Dear Phyllis and Family:
I was deeply saddened to only just
now learn of Kenny's passing two weeks
ago, and extend my heartfelt and profound
condolences to you, your children, and
all the family.
From reading all the incredible
tributes in this guest book, there is
little one can possibly add.
May your journey through your grief
be a gentle one and may his memory be
for a great and good blessing.
With sympathy and understanding,

Ken was a year ahead of me at Tufts Medical, and I often had the opportunity to work with him during our clinical rotations. He always knew all the important data about our patients, both medical and personal. He took the extra time and effort necessary to acquaint himself with his patients as fellow human beings,not just as strangers in time of medical need.
His bedside manner was unique in my experience. He had the ability to easily impart a sense of serentiy to his anxious and worried patients. I was so impressed with his manner and expertise, that when my own children were to be born, I could think of nobody else by Ken to deliver them, which he did. .
He was such an amazingly gentle and gifted man as well as an extremely competent and caring physician. Ken was a role model for all of us. His passing drastically diminishes the medical profession and indeed, all of us.

Sorry to be potentially redundant but this memory is one I cannot get out of mind and hope you don't mind my sharing it.

A Good Memoryby Leland Katz on Thursday, October 7, 2010 at 8:36am
"Yellow bird, high up in banana tree."

It's early evening the first week of August, 1961. The tenor voice has an island lilt to it and steel drums thrum in the background.

Kenny, Phyllis, Judy and I are on the Castle Harbour beach in Bermuda -- rum swizzles in hand. It's our honeymoon and our entire lives lie before us.

Military service, civilian careers; triumphs, disappointments; joys, tragedies; children, grandchildren; travel, adventure and more.

We are 22, 21 and 20 and it's almost 50 years ago. I remember it as if it were yesterday.

Dear Phyllis,

Dear Phyllis,

Following are some thoughts I posted as a note to my Facebook page. I hope you don't mind and know you know the stories but for others who may visit these pages.

A Sad Dayby Leland Katz on Wednesday, October 6, 2010 at 12:57pm

Yesterday, October 4th was a sad day as the world said goodbye to a good man who truly lived up to the Jewish imperative to do everything you can to make this world a better place than it would have been had you not been in it. On a more selfish level, Judy and I lost a good friend whom we had known for over 49 years. We met Dr. Kenneth E. Blotber (Kenny to us) when he and his Phyllis and we were on our way to Bermuda to celebrate our mutual honeymoons having both been married on July 30, 1961. Since then, it was the rare year when one or the other of us was too far from home for us not to celebrate our mutual wedding anniversaries together.

As I returned from Europe at the end of my military service, Kenny was just finishing medical school and as I struggled with more or (occasionally) less success with a career in high tech marketing and sales, Kenny fell naturally and with grace into what he was meant to do -- bring life into this world. The obituary says he was a "prominent physician." That is not the half of the story. Kenny was a mensch in the finest Yiddish sense of that German word that translates literally into "human." In Yiddish, a mensh is a person with whom you would be happy to befriend and associate with, because you feel genuine in a mensch's presence. That was Kenny Blotner.

Once, Kenny came home with a new but not ostentatious Buick. My Judy asked him why, saying he could afford any car he wanted. Kenny's answer was telling. "My dear," he said, "being rich is being able to afford whatever you want and then buying what you want." Kenny didn't need an "important" and expensive car to validate himself or impress the world around him. He always knew who he was and, while being an OBGYN doc was an important pat of that, being a husband, father and grandfather was always also an important part of who he was. I cannot count the number of anniversary celebratory meals at a restaurant when Kenny had the appetizer, left to deliver a baby and returned just in time for desert. Someone said he delivered around 5,000 babies. More importantly, he helped women and couples who wanted a family and had difficulty through those difficulties and made their families possible for them.

When our son was married five years ago and other of our friends could not come to New York for the wedding, Kenny and Phyllis were there. When I returned from the hospital after my back surgery last year, Kenny and Phyllis were the first to show up with food and good conversation.

Kenny would have loved his funeral procession. A hundred cars long, it included four State Police on motorcycles leap-frogging each other to stop cross traffic and/or highway entrance traffic from breaking into the procession. It would have appealed to his wonderfully dry sense of humor.

Kenny, we will miss you and we hope that with time the sadness we feel will fade. But the memories will always remain. And the memories are good.

Phyllis, Amy & Mark,

Kenny was a very special man which is obvious by all the wonderful messages from his patients. I was never one of his patients but I was blessed to have such a warm and caring man catch me when I dropped into this world. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful man with the babies like me who needed him.

Jerry Bergheim via Eliot Spack just emailed me about Ken's passing.( One of the few disadvantages of living in southern Arizona is being out of the loop!) My sincere condolences to you and the children and grandchildren at this time.
Several thoughts come to mind which I hope will be comforting. First, you two were so blessed to have each other for so many decades!! A rare gift!! Second, both Ken and I grew up with amazing Tufts Med Dads and somehow managed to make our marks as well. Ken's medical career as well as his kindness, his friendship, his good nature, and his devotion to family (all extraordinary) will long be remembered. Thirdly, going to high school, college, and med school together created a kind of unspoken bond that he and I shared. I felt comfortable enough to talk to Ken 5-6 years ago about my son, David and Tufts Med School after my first wife, Judy, died over a decade ago, and David then decided that he wanted to devote his life to medicine. (David graduates Tufts Med. this coming May!) Lastly, after a time, the warmth of so many happy memories will displace the much of the deep loss of now (I know).
Thinking of you,

Dr. Blotner was probably the finest doctor ever. i was his patient for many years. He was extremely caring and so easy to talk to. I can not find another Dr. Blotner, he can never be replaced. I am thinking about you at this most difficult time.Ilene Liner(Needham,MA)

Dear Phyllis, All of my thoughts have been said, the kindness and compassion of Dr. Blotner and his caring, sensitive ways. My visits to him were always special whether I was sharing my appointment with a friend or my mom. Chatting about our times in Hull or his love of golf and his beautiful family. He will be greatly missed. Wishing you comfort and love

Dear Phyllis, My name is Elaine Anoli and I was a patient of Dr. Blotner's since 1970 until he retired. My husband and I send our deepest sympathy to you and your family and are truly sorry for your loss. He delivered my two boys, Eric 32 and Matthew 29. I never had a primary care doctor. Kenny did it all. I sent all my family and friends to him. What I remember about him was his compassion,gentleness and truly caring for the human being. His sense of humor; when my husband would be in the waiting room he would pick up the phone and say "send in Mr. Anoli." They would talk about sports and family. He would always talk about his family and how proud he was to be a husband, father and grandfather. There will never be another Dr. Kennneth Blotner he was "ONE IN A MILLION" Again, we send our condolences to you and your family. Ron & Elaine Anoli, Boston, MA

I am saddened to hear about Dr. Blotner's passing, I consider myself to have been extremely fortunate to have been a patient of his. I started going to see him when I was in my 20's and continued until his retirement some 23 years later. I continued to be his patient even after I moved to New Jersey because he was that special. He was a wonderfully warm, caring, humorous and decent soul. In reading what was written in this guest book, I realize that all of us former patients have the same memories of his compassion and concern. It is quite a legacy. I am so sorry for your loss.

Dear Phyllis, Amy and Mark,

It was with such sadness that we attended the beautiful service for Kenny today. We were priviledged to be there and hear all the wonderful rememberances of him. I loved the guest book entry that mentioned the "glimmer" in his eye because that is how I always will remember him. We know how enormous your loss is but please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Such a wonderful man. God bless him.

Dear Mrs Blotner and Family,
What a beautiful photograph you have chosen of our beloved Dr. B. He had the same glimmer in his eye the day that he told me that I was going to have my first baby. Dr. Blotner was such a treasure. Every visit with him included his magical glimmer, his warm hugs, and of course, his jokes. Even when he had bad news to deliver, it was with a warm smile and a tender touch. He was a master at putting his patients at ease with his warmth, constant humor, and parental care. I consider myself a very fortunate girl to have been cared for by such a lovely man.
