John Benjamin Bliley, 87, active with the Norfolk Civitan Club

John Benjamin Bliley, 87, of Virginia Beach, passed away Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2019.

Born in Richmond, he moved at age 7 to spend the rest of his life in Virginia Beach. He worked as a television technician back in the days of console cabinets and tube TVs. He enjoyed a career working for Prices, RCA and 25 years at Sears.

He was a devoted and loving husband to his beautiful wife, Trudy. They shared 65 years of married life together. After John’s retirement in 1996, they enjoyed traveling and dancing. He also became very involved in the Norfolk Civitan Club. But his favorite past time, besides working jigsaw puzzles, was enjoying times when all the family was together.

Also, left to cherish his memory are his three children, Susan Viau (Greg), Mike Bliley (Sheryl) and Sharen Ehle (Perry); six wonderful grandchildren, Kim (John), Brian (Stephanie), Samantha (David), Michael, Brianna and Morgan; three precious great-grandchildren, Adeline, Annabelle and Lucas; siblings, Henry Bliley and Maggi Davis; and a host of nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 3, at Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Princess Anne Chapel, 3445 Princess Anne Road, Virginia Beach.

Memorial donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Center and Eggleston.
