Jonathan Forrest Bledsoe, 69, of Westville passed away peacefully at home on Monday, June 22, 2020.  He was born September 16, 1950 in Gary, Indiana to Robert Lee & Charlotte (Ridley) Bledsoe, attended Boone Grove High School and served proudly with the U.S. Army in Vietnam.  John made his career for many years with U.S. Steel Garyworks as a Roller in the Finishing Department.  Riding his motorcycle, studying dinosaurs and completing jigsaw puzzles brought him joy and peace of mind.  His faithful feline companion, “Pebbles” proved her worth every day with loyalty to John and her sly and savvy handling of the seven household cocker spaniels.  On May 8, 1982 he married Cynthia Traxler who survives along with his brother, Kevin (Carol) Bledsoe of Huntington, Indiana, half-sister, Debbie King, nieces, Ann & Sarah, his “twin” cousin, Keith Williams who shared nearly every notorious life event with John, and many loving nieces, nephews, great-nieces & nephews and friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents, brother, George Bledsoe and half-sisters, Dawn & Kathy.
A private family ceremony will be held following cremation at Angelcrest Crematory.
