Carrol Martin Blakeman was born March 2, 1921, at Edgerton, Kansas. He was the son of Golder and Mabel (Rohe) Blakeman. From 1939 to 1951, Carrol lived in the Gardner, Wellsville, and Edgerton, Kansas areas. In 1951, he moved to the Franklin County, Kansas area, where he made his home until his death Tuesday, March 5, 2002, at the age of eighty-one years.
Carrol attended Edgerton High School with the class of 1938.
He was a farmer and a carpenter. In the 1950`s, he worked for Cornelius Construction of Paola and Green Construction of Lawrence, building commercial and school buildings in Franklin, Miami and Douglas Counties. During the Vietnam War, he worked at the Sunflower Ammunitions Plant in DeSoto. Prior to retirement in 1982, he worked for Franklin County as bridge superintendent for fifteen years.
Carrol had a lifelong love of horses and mules. As a young person, he would drive miles to ride a horse that hadn`t been ridden. In retirement, he belonged to a mule rider`s club and owned a team of parade mules. The mules and his wagon are now owned by Justin Cottingham, who graciously provided them for today`s service at the cemetery.
On March 8, 1939, Carrol was united in marriage with Avis C. Moody at Wellsville, Kansas. She preceded him in death on April 20, 1999.
