David Blanchard, born July 23, 1953, passed away on Friday, January 3, 2020 at the age of 66. He had just visited with his children, Richard and Karrie, then passed while riding home with his son. He had a tough battle with cancer, along with other complications.

David lived his entire life in Pullman, graduating from Bloomingdale High School in 1971. He worked for the Allegan County Road Commission for many years. He operated many types of heavy equipment. His favorite to operate was the Drott and road grader. He also loved to plow snow. In the mid 80’s he drove truck for Bohn Aluminum delivering pistons. He also did some cross-country trucking for a few years. In the early 90’s he started at City Signal, learning to splice fiber optic cable. This allowed him to travel frequently and advance to several managerial positions. David was a very talented man with keen common sense. He started his own metal fabrication shop in the early 2000’s. This was to primarily build trailers for the telcom industry, but also allowed him to do many other projects.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Beulah and TC Blanchard. David is survived by his son, Richard Blanchard; daughter, Karrie Chapman; two sisters, Sally Lacy and Nancy (husband John) Winks; seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild on the way.

A memorial will be held at the VFW in Pullman on Saturday, February 8, 2:00 – 5:00 PM. Family and friends are all invited to share the great memories and the many stories involving David. The family thanks all those that have shared their prayers and condolences.

Our Dad,,
He was definitely a one of a kind,, very unique,, intelligent and the greatest dad that anyone could ever have. He was a very honest and hard-working man. There was not a thing in this world that he couldn't fix or make better. His personality was so wonderful even his sarcasm had a quite uniqueness. He made and had many friends in his life,, his most absolute best frienf , was his son,, my brother. A very rare and special relationship that those two shared. I know my brother will remember it forever in his heart he was so very fortunate to have a father who could be his best friend. I also know that my relationship with my father was also very rare and unique there's not a day the rest of my life that I won't think of him he was the most wonderful man that he knew how to explain things to me that no other person could he was not hypocritical he was very honest and he was always there for me no matter what. I love my dad very much and I miss him very deeply. Dad will not suffer or feel anymore pain. I miss him dearly so does my brother. I will always be very thankful to have had him for my dad. All my love. Karrie Ann
