MUNROE FALLS- On the early morning of March 16, 2023,, William
Blocksom, 94, unexpectedly passed away of natural causes. William was

William was a graduate of Cuyahoga Falls High School and later, of
Hammel College with an associate degree in Transportation. William
served proudly as a technical corporal in the United States Army.
William married Marianna Glenny on June 23, 1951.

spending 25 years at Roadway Express, Inc. in Akron, Ohio, moving to
American Freight System where he became a vice-president and finished
his career at Jones Motor Freight at the same level.

with his wife, Marianna.
