Wayne Blank
Age 72, of Morris, IL died suddenly Monday, May 31, 2021, at the Morris Hospital. He was born April 12, 1949, in Savanna, Illinois to the late Mildred (nee Carlson) and Elmer Blank.
A longtime member of Local #597, Wayne enjoyed a long career as a pipefitter primarily in more commercial/ industrial applications. When he was younger, he worked for a short time installing floors and as a butcher.
He is survived by his wife Dalia (nee Kutka) Blank; children, Joseph Blank, Jessica (Kevin) Colvin and Michael (Rachel) Blank; two grandchildren, Hunter Blank and Avin Blank. Also surviving are a brother, Mel Blank and several nieces and nephews.
Preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Larry Blank and Ken Blank.
Wayne was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing. For many years, it was rare to see him not wearing camouflage. He had a great sense of humor and loved playing practical jokes. Wayne always found himself in amusing situations and he could really tell a good story. If Wayne liked you, then he had a nickname for you. He, himself, went by "Oscar", "Oliver", and "Ollie".
All friends and relatives are invited to join the Blank family in celebrating Wayne's life on Saturday, June 12, 2021 at the Fred C. Dames Funeral Home, 1201 W. Route 6 (at Deerpath Dr.) Morris, where a visitation will occur from 2:00 p.m. until a time of sharing memories begins at 4:00 p.m. Face masks are required. As it was Wayne's wish cremation rites have been accorded.
