Eldest son of Eliza Melzina (Dean) Averett and Thomas Blazzard. He worked hard on the farm with his father so his younger siblings could go to school. He was called to go to the Southern Mission around the age of 30, and it was there that he met his future wife, Eunie Mae Musick in Kingsland, Georgia. Through their correspondence after his return from the mission field, he proposed marriage, and she rode the train to Southern Utah for their wedding in the St George LDS Temple. Their early marriage was marked with the sorrow from death of their first infant daughter, Ruth Maurine, at just 6 weeks of age. Four more daughters and one son blessed their home. At the time of his death, all were married and there were 26 grandchildren.
