Mr. Johnnie Render Blanks

Mr. Johnnie Render Blanks passed away on April 16, 2017. A family graveside service was held at Salem Cemetery.

He was born in Heard County, Georgia in May of 1946 to Alma Lizzie (Elizabeth) and Johnnie Blanks.

After graduating from Heard County High School, he lived for a number of years in Atlanta but returned to Heard County with his wife and daughter when his father encouraged him to join him at his new business, BTF Auto Parts in LaGrange. Render and his partner ran the business until its sale in 1997.

Render was a kind man of few words, and family and friends knew he loved and cared for them. He will be missed greatly, as he was, in the words of his grandson, “the best Grandpa that a Grandpa could be.” He was also a loving husband and father.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Gary, sisters-in-law Betty and Sherry, and his beloved wife, Beverly. He is survived by his daughter Angela (Micki), son-in-law Michael, and grandson Ian.

Additionally, his brother Kermit and his daughter Connie, and his nephew Jason and wife Natalie and their beautiful daughters.

Stutts Funeral Home was in charge of the arrangements.
