Obituary

KENNETH ELSWORTH BLUE
80, of Cass City, died following a brief illness Monday, November 9, 2020 in his home. He was born July 30, 1940 in Flint to Bernard and Josephine (Hall) Blue. He married Dorothy Limbaugh May 6, 1967 in Flushing.

Ken graduated from Millington High School in 1959. He earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from LeTourneau College of Longview, TX in 1964. Ken worked for the Tuscola County Road Commission as an engineer until 1978. His goal of entrepreneurship led him to join into a partnership that operated C.R. Hunt Construction of Cass City until he retired. Ken and Dottie enjoyed their winter home in Florida, which Ken referred to as “Paradise”. Although his collection of classic John Deere tractors was treasured, his 1931 Ford Model A Sport Coupe was his pride and joy. Since 1957 this car, which he drove during and since high school, has always been his baby. He was always proud to show off this beloved car, whether it was in the Millington Parade, or in a variety of car shows where he won several ribbons and plaques.

Ken was a longtime member of the Cass City Lions Club, and a member and past Grand Master of the Masonic Lodge of Cass City. He also served on the Elmwood Township Board as a trustee for 25 years. Above all, Ken loved spending time with his grandsons.

Ken is survived by his wife: Dorothy (“My Dottie”); daughters: Deborah Blue and Jeff Decker of Monrovia, IN; Lida Blue and Michael Miner of Caro; grandchildren: Zane Miner, Harrison Miner; sisters: Joyce Perry of Englewood, FL; Ruth (Bob) Bacon of Englewood, FL; sister-in-law: Judy Blue of Lafayette, GA; many nieces and nephews; his faithful canine companion, Bunny Butt. He is preceded in death by his parents; brother, Bud Blue.

Funeral service held 1:00 p.m., Friday, November 13, 2020 in Kranz Funeral Home, Cass City with Sam Leppert, funeral celebrant officiating. Interment in Hillside Cemetery. Memorials may be made to the Cass City Lions Club for the Leader Dog Program. Friends may share memories, prayers and photos with the family at www.kranzfuneralhome.com. Attendees are also kindly reminded to wear a mask or other facial covering and practice social distancing while inside the funeral home.

Ken and I worked together for many years at the Tuscola County Road Commission and had contact for years after with his visits concerning C. R. Hunt Const. He was an intelligent and gentle man. Always enjoyed talking with him at the road commission and after he left us. So sorry to hear of his passing. Our sympathies to Dorothy and the family. Ken and Judy Dunton
