July 31, 1938 - March 9, 2019
Donald Lynn Blaylock, age 80, of Bristol, VA, went home to be with our Lord on Saturday, March 9, 2019. He was born on July 31, 1938 in Bristol, VA, a son of the late Orville R. and Mary B. Hutton Blaylock. He was the youngest of 3 boys, Dr. Kennith Blaylock and the late George R. Blaylock. Don is survived by his wife, Phyllis J. Moyers Blaylock, and daughter, Mary Donice B. Martinez. Don proudly served our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and was ordained as a Baptist Minister in 1958. He served as Minister of Music in Johnson City, TN, Knoxville, TN, Louisville, KY, and Cullman, AL; as Campus Minister in Morehead, KY for Morehead State University; and Associate Director and Director of Student work for the KY Baptist Convention where he retired and served more than 30 years with College Students and International Students. He was also well known as a Christian entertainer and Pantomime artist who had a great gift of bringing laughter and smiles while at the same time sharing of God’s work and love. He loved and wrote music and was a Drum Major in College, played Trombone and Timpani in the band, as well as taught High School Band and Political Science. He loved to sing and sang in ensembles, choirs and as a soloist. Don and my Dad exemplified the characteristics of Love from the Bible. I Corinthians 13:4-7: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Heaven has now welcomed a great man as an Angel of God and will be greatly missed here on earth. You are loved beyond time and measure! Arrangements especially for Mr. Blaylock and his family have been made through Oakley-Cook Funeral Home & Crematory.
