Kenneth Alvin Blades, age 74 of Breckenridge, passed away Wednesday, April 3, 2019, in Fort Worth. Memorial Service will be held at noon on Saturday, April 6, 2019, at the Gunsight Baptist Church with Rex Boggs officiating. Visitation will be held at the Women’s Forum on Friday, April 5, 2019, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The service will be under the direction of Melton-Kitchens Funeral Home.

Kenneth was born August 16, 1944, in San Diego, California, to Amos and Roberta Blades. He graduated high school in Olton, Texas, in 1962 and then went off to work shortly after graduation. Ken married the love of his life, Sammie Clark, on June 16, 1963, in Olton, Texas. He worked most of his working career in gas production as a Gas Producer. Anyone that knew him knows his devotion and dedication to his family. He was always there for his loved ones no matter the circumstance. Ken’s grandkids were equally important to him and always wanted to attend their school and sporting events. There was many things Ken loved in this life, from hunting and fishing to taking pride in cooking one of the best steaks. The family always said his steaks were better than any restaurant. He never lost his sense of humor, even until the very end. He was always known to those close to him as a prankster. He loved to play tricks on everyone, but especially his wife.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Ken is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Sammie Blades of Breckenridge; daughter Tammy Satterwhite and husband Houston of Breckenridge; sons, Harvey Blades of Breckenridge and Colby Blades of Phoenix, Arizona; sisters, Larita Eddy of Moore, Oklahoma, and Sue Isle of Moore, Oklahoma; brothers, Don Blades of Moses Lake, Washington, and Ben Blades of Surprise, Arizona; ten grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
