Edward Blank Obituary

Edward William Blank passed away on February 14, 2024 in Parker, Colorado. Ed, along with his twin sister Evelyn Louise (Fury), was born December 20,1937 in Durango, Colorado to Bernice Louise (Hucke) and William Alvin Blank.   

Ed attended high school in Cortez, CO and graduated with a degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO. He married his college sweetheart, Orah Verniece Self in Craig, CO on July 25, 1960. He spent time in the Navy as a pilot, and at Boeing and later Lockheed as an engineer. He retired from Colorado as a Water Division Engineer in Steamboat Springs, CO. 

Church was a cornerstone of Ed’s life. Wherever they moved, Ed took on a leadership role as the song leader of the local Church of Christ. He also served as an elder while in Greeley, CO. Ed was especially fond of area-wide church singing events. 

Ed is survived by his wife Orah, daughters Reniece (Jones), Beverly (Zabel) and Linda (Aspey); six grandchildren, Marcus Jones, Nick Aspey, Keeley (Aspey) Rollert, Wesley Aspey, Travis Zabel, Bethany (Aspey) Jackson; and 10 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his twin sister, Evelyn Fury and his grandson Jacob Zabel.
