Vernon Blohm

August 19, 1929 — March 13, 2024

Vernon J. Blohm, age 94, passed away at home on Wednesday, March 13, 2024. He was born on August 19, 1929 to the late Harvey and Marion (Veitch) Blohm. Vernon was united in marriage to Ethel "Jean" Bennett on February 7, 1954, having celebrated 70 years of marriage.

Following graduation from Seymour High School, he served in the US Army and Army Reserve for 23 years.

Vernon worked as a well driller and in the welling drilling business until his retirement.

He enjoyed being outdoors, and especially liked his hunting and fishing. Traveling with Jean was also one of his favorite things to do.
