August 13, 1948 - April 7, 2024

William “Bill” Donald Blinkhorn Jr., 75, of Dickerson, MD, passed away on April, 7th, 2024.  Born on August 13, 1948, in Washington, D.C., he was the son of the late William Donald Blinkhorn Sr. and Edith Marie Blinkhorn.

He is survived by his wife, Judy A. Fling, his sons, Russell W. Blinkhorn, Kenneth B. Blinkhorn, daughter in-law Kelly Blinkhorn, and his four grandchildren, Kole, Wyatt, Kenley, and Cassidy Blinkhorn. Additionally, Bill is survived by his sister Patricia Lynn Netter and her husband Christopher, and was predeceased by his brothers, Timothy Joseph Blinkhorn, and Michael Raymond Blinkhorn.

Bill attended both Wheaton and Good Counsel High Schools. Professionally, he worked as a Master Electrician for Dyna Electric for over 30 years as a member of the IBEW Local 26 and later worked for the Maryland National Capital Park & Planning Commission for the last 10 years of his career before retiring.

A Navy veteran, Bill will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend, and mentor. He was always passionate about his pursuits and interests throughout his life, but he was happiest with his family and grandchildren. Among the many activities he enjoyed in his spare time, he loved working on his hot rods, attending antique car shows, and participating in civil war reenactments as a bass drummer. He was a member of the 2nd Maryland Fifes and Drums and was also a proud member and bagpiper with the Montgomery County Firefighters Pipes and Drums. Bill was loved dearly by all that knew him and will be deeply missed and remembered by those that he left behind.

The family will be holding a private funeral at Hilton Funeral Home, 22111 Beallsville Road, Barnesville, MD, followed by a celebration of life at a later date.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made in his name to Lewy Body Dementia Association. https://www.lbda.org/donate/
