Paul W. Blausey
1937 - 2012
Channel 11's favorite local farmer and K-100's biggest Lorrie Morgan fan dies.
Paul W. Blausey of Genoa, Ohio, a lifetime farmer, "arrived home peacefully," Wednesday, May 30, 2012, fighting the toughest battle he ever fought. He celebrated his 75th birthday, May 6th, receiving a priceless gift of 75+ years of memories written by his family and friends. He even received a phone call from country music singer, Lorrie Morgan.
Paul was born in Elmore, Ohio, to Wilson H. and E. Pauline (Bothe) Blausey. He celebrated 52 years of marriage with his soul mate, Sandy, whom he married January 1, 1960, in Delta, Ohio.
Sandy farmed right alongside him; and together they traveled and being big fans of country music, attended more than 150 Lorrie Morgan concerts.
He also enjoyed dining out with family and friends. Paul over the years supported his community with philanthropic contributions.
He was a member of St. John's United Church of Christ in Genoa and served on the boards of many local organizations; most recently FSA (Farm Service Agency), Otterbein-Portage Valley, and the FFA Alumni. In 2011 he received the Honorary State FFA Degree.
For several years he was the president of the Fremont Pickle & Tomato Growers Association. Paul always offered to help others and wanted to make a difference wherever he could, especially in the preservation of the land.
In addition to his wife, Sandy, Paul is survived by his daughters, Lisa L. (Rich) Gargas and Susan L. Beyer, both of Genoa, grandchildren, Chad, Ryan, Erika and Erin, and siblings, Harry (Bev) Blausey of Newark, Jane (Tom) Milbrodt of Bowling Green, and Carol (Sam) Bolander of Martin.
His parents preceded him in death.
Visitation will be 2 to 8 p.m., Friday, June 1, 2012, in the Robinson-Walker Funeral Home & Crematory, 501 West St., Genoa. The funeral service will be conducted 11 a.m., Saturday, June 2, 2012, in St. John's United Church of Christ, 1213 Washington St., Genoa, with interment to follow in Clay Township Cemetery.
Memorials for Paul may be directed to St. John's UCC, 1213 Washington St., Genoa, OH 43430; Genoa FFA, 2980 N. Genoa Clay Center Rd., Genoa, OH 43430; or Stein Hospice, 1200 N. Sycamore Line, Sandusky, OH 44870.
