Marion Ronald Blizzard (Bud); 80 of Village Mills passed away peacefully Friday December 25, 2020 into the presence of his Lord and Savior while surrounded by his loving family.
He was born August 2, 1940 in Richland Georgia to Marion Flynn Blizzard and Evelyn Bowling Blizzard.
He was a loving husband, dad, and papa. He provided for his family as a carpenter/contractor. He served in the US Army assigned to a strike unit as well as part of the military police. Serving his country was important to him and most importantly he was a fearless soldier and warrior for Christ. He was a hard working man and began his life in the workforce at the age of 12 to help his dad who was in poor health provide for their family.
What was most important to Bud was to be a spiritual leader and teach his family the ways of the Lord, and to live for Him and serve Him. He always won the youngest father with the most children award in church. He was section Royal Ranger Leader in California teaching young men the ways of God.
He was so dedicated to his loving wife that he adored, his children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. He would go the extra mile for any of them. He was the epitome of the word “Role Model”, not only to his children and grandchildren, but to each and every person who met him. He was selfless. He helped family, friends and even strangers.
Survivors include his wife, soulmate and best friend of 60 years, Jane Carol Blizzard, daughter Angela Blizzard Warren of Magnolia TX, son Richard Blizzard of Lumberton TX, daughter Christina Nelms and husband Ray Nelms of Mebane NC, son Jeff Blizzard and wife Deena Blizzard of Beaumont TX, son Scott Blizzard and wife Amy Blizzard of Wildomar CA, daughter Lisa Blizzard of Village Mills TX, 22 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, and a host of other family and friends.
