Donald Blankenship Jr. Obituary

Donald “Donnie” Blankenship Jr. 52, of Majestic, KY, passed away December 28th, 2023, at Freeburn, KY.  He was born March 19th, 1971, in South Williamson, KY, a loving son of Donald and Pearl “Mounts” Blankenship. 

Donnie was a retired coal miner and of the Christian faith.  He was an avid hunter and loved being outdoors.  He loved to turkey hunt, but deer hunting was his favorite sport.  Donnie also loved riding four wheelers and playing cards with his buddies.  He always enjoyed spending time with his daughters and was always so proud of them.

In addition to Donnie’s parents, Donald and Pearl Blankenship of Majestic, KY, he is also survived by his daughters, Alexis and MaCaila Blankenship of Ashland, KY; a son, Seth Bowling; sister, Angela Justice; nephews, Corey (Latosha) Justice, and Erney (Kelley) Justice all from Frenchburg, KY; great nieces, Chloe, and Emilia; and his best friend since childhood, Chris Dotson. 

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
