His brother had received an injury to his arm after falling while making an arrest. During the drive to Seattle a tire on Sheriff Blankenship's vehicle blew out in Pierce County, causing him to lose control and strike a tree. Sheriff Blankenship was killed and his two passengers were injured.

Sheriff Blankenship's brother, Sheriff Paul Blankenship, was struck and killed by a vehicle six years later while also serving as Kitsap County Sheriff. Sheriff Daniel Blankenship had served as Sheriff for 8 years.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 77th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Your mother's anquish in losing two sons in the life of duty is unimaginable.

Rest In Peace
