Johnny Dale Blades of McConnellsburg, Pa. passed away suddenly on Sunday, August 20, 2023. Johnny was born on Feb. 15, 1959 in Seaford, the son of the late Frankie R. and Dolores Mosley Blades. He was a 1977 graduate of Woodbridge High School. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army and proudly served our country from 1977-1980 until he was honorably discharged.

Johnny was a highly skilled carpenter and a man of many talents. In his spare time, he loved hunting, fishing, and crabbing. He was a caring son, brother, father, grandfather, and friend. Johnny was known for his sense of humor and ability to always put a smile on the faces of those who crossed his path. He had a heart of gold and would gladly give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it. The world is truly a lesser place without Johnny Blades, and he will be missed dearly.

Johnny is survived by his siblings, Cody Blades (Debbie) of Brunswick, GA, and Robin Blades Twilley (Steven) of Milford; his three children, Chelsea Blades of McConnellsburg, PA, Caitlin Blades of Bennett, CO, and Jarrett Blades of St. Thomas, PA, as well as his four grandchildren.

In late October of this year, his family will hold a celebration of life event in Delaware. Please reach out to family members for more information and to RSVP for this event.
