Tony A. Blackman

September 6, 1970 — July 29, 2017

Tony A. Blackman was born September 6, 1970, at Denison, Iowa, the son of Barry W. and Marie Blackman. He passed away Saturday, July 29, 2017, at Loring Hospital in Sac City, Iowa, at the age of forty-six.
Tony received his education in the Denison Community Schools and earned an Associate Degree at Western Iowa Tech in Denison in 2011. He was united in marriage to Becky Bretey on December 1, 1990. They celebrated 26 years of marriage, but if he told you how many years it was always a higher number. He served his country in the National Guard. Tony was employed in the meat department at No Frills Supermarket in Denison for three years and then began his 25-year employment at Farmland where he worked production, Quality Assurance, and then as a supervisor. He subsequently was employed as a USDA meat inspector at Tyson in Storm Lake, Iowa.
Hunting and fishing in the area, camping, taking vacations - having recently gone parasailing – and posting pictures on facebook were his favorite things to do in his leisure time. He also enjoyed attending car shows, driving his dad’s ‘55 Chevy, or just cruising around in his ’77 Monte Carlo. He was a collector of shot glasses and Harley Davidson shirts. American Pickers, Counts Customs, Top Gear, Fast and Loud, classic westerns and action movies were his favorite television shows. He also enjoyed listening to country music and spending time with his family.
Tony was preceded in death by his father, Barry, and his father-in-law, Dale. Survivors include: his wife, Becky of Early, Iowa; one son, Jake and his wife, Kristina and expected granddaughter of Schleswig, Iowa; one daughter, Megan and boyfriend, Bret of Sac City, Iowa; his mother, Marie of Denison, Iowa ; two brothers: Travis and his wife, Amy of Westside, Iowa and Tyson of Ida Grove, Iowa; one sister, Tiffany of Vail, Iowa; mother-in-law, Tudy of Denison; brothers-in-law: Clayton and his wife, Laurie of Exira, Iowa; Kurt and his wife, Shelly of Palestine, Texas; Keith and his wife, Teri of LeMars, Iowa; Tony and his wife, Nicole of Blair, Nebraska; one sister-in-law, Paulette and her husband, Todd of Ashton, Iowa; and many nieces and nephews.
