So sorry to hear of your loss. Buddy as I have always called him was a kind and caring person. He will be missed at his church and the entire Yonkers community. Praying your strength and comfort in the Lord.

Buddy as I knew him was a kind friend, he always had a smile and good word. Although I hadn't seen him for years, He always had a lasting memory of years ago. He will be missed. RIP Albert.

Dea. Blanks was the best promoter in Yonkers, N.Y. He was like family to us. He always showed us the kindest hospitality upon arriving to his church. The treasured memory we have are the many times he sat with us on our tour bus and laughed and talked about everything. He was our friend first, later becoming family. Had it not been for covid 19, we would have sang for his service. One night traveling through N.Y. , our tour bus broke down; we called Dea. Blanks and he got up out of his bed, came to us with help and helped us find towing to get our bus off the freeway. Only a friend, family and most of all a man of God would do that. We love you and will greatly miss you. Larnell Starkey & The Spiritual Seven from Virginia.

Mrs. Blanks, Wanda, Hazel and Wayne,

I will always remember Deacon Blanks. His great smile and how much he loved his family. May God wrap his loving arms around you all. May your dads memory continue to live forever in your heart.

Love you all!

To the Blanks family, my heart was saddened to hear about my friend Albert, he will always be "Buddy" to me, my deepest sympathy to the family, he always was a part of my experience when I lived in Yonkers, NY, and was one of the musicians at Community Baptist Church. Always greeted me with a smile when we saw each other, God be with you.
