SEBRING, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – John Nelson Blevins, 70, of Sebring passed away on Wednesday, August 17, 2022 at Aultman Hospital in Canton.

John was born on October 9, 1951 in Morehead, Kentucky to the late Orville and Elsie (Stevens) Blevins.

John was a friend to everyone he met putting a smile on their face. He was an avid fisher and hunter and collected guns. Whether it be a stranger, friend or family you could always count on John to make you laugh with one of his jokes. He touched many lives and it showed through the beeps and countless conversations on the porch while John rocked in his chair. His family meant everything to him even if it meant being the Uber driver or just spending time with them, he cherished the moments he got to spend with his family. He cherished the time he spent with his grandchildren, they were his pride and joy.

Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife, Amber (Smarr) Blevins; children, Sherri (Jimmie) Funk and Andrea Ludwig; siblings, Teddy Oney, Jewel (Ervin) Oney, Earl (Betty Jo) Blevins, Ellen Blevins and Ronnie (Kathee) Blevins; a sister-in-law, Paulette Blevins; grandchildren, Justin (Ashley), John Christopher (Haley), Jacob (Jade) and Brianna and great-grandchildren, Haidyn and Jameson.
