I worked with Roy at the Duberson Alternative School back in 2001, he was a great guy there - always calm and relaxed with the students. He knew everything about boats and fishing, and had a ton of stories. So sorry to hear about this, he’ll be missed by everyone.

We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Blankenship. For 4 years he was our daughter Lauren's aide at Oakcrest HS. He took awesome care of her and made sure to communicate every concern or need she may have had during her school day. We always knew she was in good hands with Mr. Blankenship by her side. He will truly be missed. Love , Shirley, Jeff, Lauren and Ethan Armbruster
