June 28, 1974 – February 6, 2022
Born June 28, 1974, in San Diego, David Jeffrey “Jeff” Blevens passed away Sunday, February 6, 2022, in Bloomington, In.
He is survived by his mother, Nancy A. Blevens; sister, Jennifer K. Rich, and his nephews, Hayden M. Rich and Zander G. Rich. He is preceded in death by his father, Ronald D. Blevens.
Jeff graduated high school from Bedford North Lawrence in 1992 and went on to become a skilled laborer for Indiana Limestone. He later worked on the l-69 project through Bloomington and fell in love with building bridges.
He was a man of many talents from playing guitar, working on vehicles, to having vast “handyman” knowledge. He frequently joked about his fictitious business name, DJ’s Dis & Dats Fabrications and Combobulations. He was always genuinely willing to lend a hand to those people in his life or anyone in need that crossed his path. Jeff was an intelligent, kind, and loving soul.
In 2016, a life-altering accident left him with permanent disabilities that challenged him daily. All who knew Jeff can attest to his independence and sheer stubbornness to not be a victim of circumstance. Although he had setbacks, he never gave up. While participating in a program to help him understand and manage his traumatic brain injury, he enrolled in a vocational rehabilitation program through Ivy Tech Bloomington to become a certified mechanic. Through his hard work and tenacity, he made the Dean’s List.
An informal memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at Day & Carter Mortuary located at 1133 Lincoln Ave. in Bedford, In, from 1 p.m. until 4 pm.
