View Funeral Webcast Charles Albert Blowers Jr, age 93, of Arnold, Nebraska, died peacefully August 22, 2023, in Callaway, NE. Junior was born June 28, 1930, to Charles Albert Sr and Della (Boyer) Blowers by Arnold, Nebraska, at the family home. He graduated from Arnold Public Schools in 1947 at the age of 16. He married his one and only love, Janet Charlene Olson, on August 23, 1954. To this union five children were born, Rebecca Colleen (Becky), Tami Ann, Carolyn Ann, Charles Eric (Chip), and Daniel Lee. Charles joined the US army in 1955, proudly serving his country for two years. After the service, Junior came home to the family farm. Although his family was his greatest passion, it was only rivaled by his love of farming and ranching on Tallin Table. He was widely recognized for being one of the first farmers to get an M tractor with a two-row planter. The first year he planted 1,000 acres with it. He was always a hard worker willing to lend a helping hand to his neighbors or anyone else in need. His philosophy was that if you go to work, you don’t get into trouble. He continued his love of farming until the day his sons had to pull the keys out of the farm equipment. Junior’s commitment and responsibility to the growth of his family’s farm developed simply to serve multiple generations with advances in both farming practices and ranching. His favorite annual activity was the yearly cattle drive from the Sandhills to the pasture south of Arnold. Although he truly enjoyed the successes and challenges of farm life, it was personally more important to him to leave a lasting legacy and a passion for agriculture. Avid in his faith and a true servant leader, Junior loved everything about his church. As a deacon and a trustee, he willingly gave his time serving his church family and enjoyed their fellowship. He always made time for visiting with his neighbors and friends. His faith was something he developed in multiple generations. Junior took his responsibility of raising his children alongside the Lord with the highest regard. Junior had quite a sense of humor keeping it even in his later years as his mind was slipping. In that time, he enjoyed watching his grandkids and great grandkids playing as well as eating ice cream and cookies with them. His love for music and singing continued to inspire not only his grandkids’ love of familiar hymns, but everyone who had the pleasure of hearing him.
