  5. Christy, I love you and Bill so much and am so proud of and amazed by the love that the two of you have shared. I will always be here for you.

  6. Even though I've not seen Bill since I was a child, my childhood memories are filled with having grown up with him in my life, and his brothers around also. We lived close to each other and played together, fished and crabbed together, hunted and enjoyed sports wotj each other. I couldn't have asked for a better friend! I just heard the rumor the day before Christmas that one of the Blevins boys may have passed away, so I searched the internet and found it was Bill. Finally today I confirmed that rumor by speaking with his lovely wife Christy. What a great lady Bill chose in life, he was lucky to find someone with a heart as filled with love for him as she has! It's a rare thing, some may be married 60 years and never experience what Bill had with Christy in the time they were together. I know Christy is going to miss him, but surely God must have needed another angel!

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. Though I haven't seen Bill since school, he was one of the first people I think of when I reflect back on school days. I first met Bill in 1965 when my family moved from Moss Bluff and enrolled at Pearl Watson Junior High and some years later when I transfered from Landry Memorial High to LCHS. Bill was in several of my classes and was very nice to me and helped me get settled in. He was a good guy and will be missed tremendously.

  8. I can't help but post again, Bill was one of my best friends ever in life, especially in my youth. He was part of my life from the beginning of my life until Jr. High, then my folks sold our house and moved away. Bill was just 10 weeks older than I was, we were toddlers together, we grew up catty-corner from each other and explored the world together. Little to the knowledge of our parents we rode the trains on 1st Ave, we even crawled under them when they were moving really slow and didn't want to wait for them to pass so we could get to each others houses. Though I've not dialed his phone number in over 40 years I still remember it, just as I remember the Felix the Cat clock on the wall in the boys bedroom, or the electric train set on the back porch. I remember Bill and I finding a large refrigerator box during the Cuban Missile Crisis, we set it up in his backyard against the back fence and covered it with brush thinking it would protect us, obviously we didn't know much about nuclear weapons. To Jackie, Ken, Mike, you were all like family in my youth, I have nothing but good memories of each of you. I've thought of each of you over the many years it's been since we've seen each other. I'm sorry for your loss. I wasn't really close to your father, but your mother Dot I adored, and Mary Alice was always so nice to me as well. Even Uncle Ken was a great guy, he was everyone's uncle, the only time I think I ever saw him mad was when he let Bill and I play in his car and it started rolling back with the door open and the door caught on the front bumper of another car and sprung the door hinges on his door and it couldn't be closed. 🙂 Even then he said it was hit fault for letting children play in his car. Anyway, I wanted to say how blessed I feel I was to have grown up around you all, I feel I couldn't have had a better 2nd family in the world! I'm so very sorry for your loss. You each remain in my prayers always. My sympathies and regards,Gordon

  9. I have lost a dear friend, so many great memories never to be forgotten. Willy, no more pain rest in peace. Friends Forever Mike GEAUX SAINTS!

  10. I wanted to send condolences to the family. It's been a long time, but my memories are still sharp and good of the great times on 8th Street with Dot, Uncle Ken, Jack, Mike, Ken and Bill. Having been gone since 1968, I will always hold Bill in memory as kid brother. If only we all could stay that young forever. My best to everyone.

  11. I went to school with Bill at Pearl Watson and LCHS. He was the kind of guy who's smile could brighten any day. He was just a great person. My deepest sympathy and prayers to his family and all who love him. May your tears soon turn to smiles as you remember the joyous times spent with Bill. He is no longer hurting and you now have him as your angel until you meet again. May God give you the strength you need to get through this very heartbreaking time.

  12. Jack and the Blevins brothers – just wanted you to know I am thinking of you at this time. May the memories of Bill comfort you dring the difficult days ahead. Thoughts and prayers -Theresa Bell Hartley

  13. Jack, I never knew Bill, but I know what it is like to lose a brother too early in his life. To you and all of your family, Dick and I will be thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers.

  14. To Bills family. Bill and I went to school together at LC High. We worked together at the aluminum plant over 20 years. We went fishing together numerous times. We worked the same shifts together many years. Neither of us ever like that old plant. we had many laughs together. Share a lot of beers together in the old days. He was a hoot to be around. Always laughing and cutting up. I will miss my friend. My prayers are with you. I ask for Gods strength and comfort for His family . God Bless.

  15. To the Blevins Men. . . Jack, Ken and Mike. . .the sweetest, nicest and most handsome men that I've ever had the pleasure to know, Bill included… My life has been enriched by each and every one of you, and my heart aches for your loss and sadness during this time of grief. May it help you to know that others care very deeply for you all, especially at this difficult time, as you say goodbye to Bill, though your love and memories of him will endure forever. My thoughts and prayers go out to each of you. With love and deep affection, Charlotte

  16. Uncle Bill was a great guy, who will be missed tremendously. I felt so honored to read for him today. I love you both, Aunt Christy and Sam.

  17. We will always remember Mr Bill as a very caring person who loved life and one who took good care of our daughter. He always showed us so much respect. We love him and we will miss him deeply. Dad and Dee Hanks
