Kenneth James Blattman was born on February 18, 1955 to parents Robert James Blattman and Marion Agnus (Glover) Blattman and passed away peacefully at home on August 12th. He graduated from Poland Seminary High School in 1973 and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Youngstown State University. After completing college, Ken continued in the family business and eventually took ownership of Blattman Brothers Tool and Grinding. He retired as a tool and die maker from Brainard Manufacturing in February of this year. In his younger days, Ken enjoyed being outside camping, fishing, and hunting with his friends. He toured many of this country’s greatest landmarks and National Parks on his motorcycle. As a lifelong resident of this area, he was a fan of the YSU Penguins, Ohio State Buckeyes, Cleveland Browns and the Cleveland Guardians. His kind soul, keen sense of humor and big smile will be missed by his fiancée, Jackie Yahn of Youngstown, his brother, William (Julie) Blattman of Lexington, KY, sisters Ginger Fitzgerald of Poland, Ohio and Carol (James) Sofranec of New Middletown, Ohio, his nine nephews and nieces, eight great nephews and nieces, his breakfast buddies and all of his extended family and friends.
