BLANC, HENRY DANIEL II - age 70, of Jefferson City, died Thursday, June 18, 1998, at 3:40 p.m. in Saint Mary's Medical Center at Knoxville, Tennessee, after a valiant struggle with multiple myeloma. Born in Knoxville, Henry grew up in Jefferson City, Tennessee, earning his Eagle Scout rank and participating in church and community affairs. He was a graduate of the Baylor School in Chattanooga and the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. In recognition of his football achievements there, William and Mary recently honored Henry with membership in its Athletic Hall of Fame. Though not a graduate of Carson-Newman College, Henry continued a family tradition of support of the college spanning four generations into the early 1900's. He followed his grandfather's steps in service on the board of trustees, tirelessly working to promote the best interests of the college for many years until his health required his resignation from this fellowship he so dearly loved. Carson-Newman honored Henry for his devoted service with an honorary doctorate degree on May 10, 1997. In 1950, Henry began his life's work at Blanc and West Lumber Company, the family business which began operation in 1935 at its present location in Jefferson City. He was still active in the management until the last few days of his life. For many years, Henry served as an active deacon of the First Baptist Church in Jefferson City as well as teaching a Sunday School class and working on various committees. He was a member of the Mossy Creek lodge No. 353, F&AM and the American Legion. Son of the late Adrian and Freda West Blanc, Henry was preceded in death by his son, Jim Blanc. He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Betty Gay Walden Blanc of Jefferson City; daughters and their husbands, Jenny and Doug Malone of Wingate, North Carolina, Nancy and Danny Dalton of New Market, Tennessee and Linda Gay Blanc and Marion Barnett of Jefferson City, Tennessee; brother, Adrian Blanc of Jefferson City, Tennessee; sister, Mary Comer of Dandridge, Tennessee; grandchildren, Drew, Will and Jay Dalton and Megan, Molly and Derek Malone; step-grandsons, Joshua and John Mark Barnett and many special nieces and nephews.

Memorials to Carson-Newman College in Henry's honor would be especially appropriate. Henry's family wishes to express gratitude to the doctors and entire staff at Knoxville Hematology Oncology for their tender loving care. Known for his mischievous sense of humor, unassuming personal dignity and rock steady loyalty to friends, Henry Blanc moved through this life with grace, always openly, warmly interested in all who crossed his path.
