Roger Dale Blanks, 67, of Valparaiso, formerly of Texas passed away Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at home. He was born October 25, 1951 in Gary, IN to Earl & Leoma (Oliver) Blanks, graduated from River Forest High School in 1970 and served with the U.S. Navy. A painter by trade, Roger’s true talents may have been less appreciated by mainstream society.  Bullshitting and enticing those around him to participate in nefarious activities were always held in high regard.  This charismatic magnetism led his mother to dub him “king of the ringtail leaders”.  His carefree spirit will be sadly missed by all of us who can only wish we were as comfortable in our own skin as Roger was in his.  Survivors include his brothers, Randy Blanks of Valparaiso & Rick Blanks of Texas, sister, Earline Young of Texas and his beloved canine, “Houdini”. He was preceded in death by his parents.
A visitation will be held Wednesday from 3 – 7 pm at Moeller Funeral Home, 104 Roosevelt Rd., Valparaiso, IN.  Memorial donations may be made to the family.
