'Peanut' was always a hard worker, very respectful and a very nice person to be around. He came from one of the best Seadrift families. Peanut is with the love of his life, Kathy who held out her arms waiting for him. I so remember when Kathy came to Seadrift and they were a couple. Wishing everyone hope in the midst of sorrow, comfort in the midst of pain. Our thoughts and prayers are with family at this time.

My heart goes out to the family of Kenneth (Peanut) Blevins. So sorry for your loss. Peanut was such a joyful person. Every time I had the honor to be around him he was always smiling and very kind and loving. God has really gained himself another wonderful Angel in Heaven. Rest in Peace Peanut. May God and his love comfort all you at this time.
Love, Kay Langley
