Obituary of John W. Blackburn

John W. Blackburn, age 68, went to be with his Lord and Savior on February 5, 2022. Services will be held at a later date.


John was born on July 24, 1953 in Lawrenceville, Massachusetts to the late Ann Blackburn. John devoted his life to God, and attended church in Pelham, Georgia. John was a hard worker, who took pride in what he did daily. He was currently employed at Belks before his passing. John enjoyed watching Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and reruns of the Andy Griffith Show. He was an avid Atlanta Braves fan who cheered them on when they won the World Series. John also enjoyed playing video games on his phone, doing house and yard work, but most importantly, he enjoyed spending time with his family.


John is survived by his dear friend of 12 years, Bertha Haurst; children, John (Alesia) Blackburn; grandchildren, De’Jon Blackburn, Xavier Rozier; sister, Gloria Debb, and a host of extended friends and family.
