Dr. Darrell Wayne Blalock, age 74, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 10th, 2022. Beloved husband of 51 years to Judy Fitzgerald Blalock. Son of the late Bob and Rosalee Blalock. Father to Dr. Craig Blalock and Lindsay Blalock Rosebush. Grandfather to Cade Blalock, Jackson Rosebush, and Adeline Rosebush. Born in Oklahoma City, Ok., raised in Solana Beach, Ca., Dr. Blalock was a proud resident of Slidell, La. for 36 years before retiring to north Georgia in 2015. An alum of Southeastern Louisiana University in 1970 and LSU Dental School in 1975, Dr. Blalock served in the United States Navy before practicing in the Slidell area as a well-respected dentist for those 36 years. Dr. Blalock was best described by many as a gentle giant, true to his large stature and soft kindness. His passion for family, friends, and his home ran deep. He loved playing basketball, watching his New Orleans Saints and LSU Tigers, fishing, swimming with his grandkids, and anything that kept him outdoors. A warm heart, a wide smile, and a patient helping hand were things that greeted everyone he met. He was often found having lunch at the PoBoy Factory or Lee’s Hamburger and was always ready for crawfish season. A true one of a kind, he will be loved and missed by all that knew him and forever in our hearts. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date this spring. In lieu of flowers the family has asked for contributions to the Dementia Society of America at www.DementiaSociety.org/donate.
