Lawrence Blinn

July 28, 1928September 13, 2011

Lawrence Edmund Blinn passed away on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at the Victoria Care Center at the age of 83. He was born on July 28, 1928 in Pasadena. He had lived at the Lexington in Ventura for a little over a year coming from La Puente where he had lived for over 40 years.

Lawrence was an antique dealer for almost 50 years. He loved the business and had just retired last year. He was interviewed back in the 60s’ for a TV program and the host of the show commented that he thought Dad resembled Ronald Regan. From that moment on, Ronnie was his hero!

Once he came to reside at the Lexington, his greatest joy was having his family visit and sitting down with him for a game of Rummikub. When they weren’t there he loved playing Bingo with his new found friends at the Lexington. Dad had managed the little store at the Lexington for a short time but his illness came to be too great and he had to retire again. He spent most of his time waiting for Bingo games and enjoying sports on TV.

He is survived by daughter, Mignonne Blinn Hubina and husband, William and son, Lawrence L. Blinn and wife, Melanie; grandchildren, Allison Spring Thompson and husband, Travis, William Peet and wife Andria, Landon Blinn and Ashley Blinn; brother, Robert Blinn and wife, Beatrice and his former wife and friend La Juana.

There will be a memorial service to celebrate the life of Lawrence Blinn at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, September 17, 2011 at the Lexington, 5440 Ralston St., Ventura. 644-6701 His ashes will be interred at Mt. View Cemetery in Pasadena at a later date.

Arrangements under the direction of Charles Carroll Funeral Home, Ventura, CA. (805) 642-8134

Mignonne and family,

You have been an awesome, caring daughter to your Dad, your hero. I so enjoyed his sense of humour when we would stop by to see him at the Lexington. He always had a smile on his face! I know you and your family will miss him dearly, keep those great memories you have of him close to your heart...

Love and hugs,
Brenda & Rex

Dear Dad,
I can't believe you are gone, it was a long hard road for you these past few months, I know that you are in a much better place now, sitting somewhere with all your friends, laughing, and sharing stories.
Today as I sit here pondering what to write, I just keep thinking about your smile, your sense of humor, and how very much you are loved & missed.
I still have your last voice mail from Sunday after I dropped you off from the Hospital. Every time I listen to it my heart breaks, you did not ruin my day, there is no place else I would have wanted to be. You are my hero, and always will be. I know that one day I will see you again, but until then please behave yourself with all those women up there! :-)
