Severt Layne Blauvelt

January 5, 1942 — April 13, 2023

Obituary for Severt Layne Blauvelt Severt Layne Blauvelt was born to Keith K. and Barbara (Drake) Blauvelt on January 5, 1942, the coldest day of the year, in Thedford, Nebraska. Severt went to meet his Heavenly Father April 13, 2023, at the age of 81 years. In his younger years, he played sports, sang in a quartet, played the trombone, and rode a BMW motorcycle. He attended church regularly and never missed any youth activity whether it was ice skating, sleigh riding or prayer meetings. Severt also worked on road construction with his father and other family members. When the draft was in effect, he was down the line to be drafted so he volunteered his service and took the place of a newlywed draftee. He joined the Marines alongside John Paul Morris. After a short stint in the Marines and some overseas deployment, he returned home to take a well-deserved leave time. During this leave, while still in California, he was in a terrible vehicle accident and was rushed to Oak Noll Naval Hospital where he spent 5 ½ months in a coma. He was then transferred to Grand Island VA Hospital where he spent several months before he was released to home care. Severt was only 19 years old at the time of this accident. Severt always had a positive mental attitude and was an inspiration to those around him. Those left to mourn his passing are his sister, LaDean (Dale) McGonigle of Milford, NE and his brother, Marvin Blauvelt of Thedford, NE, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Preceding him in death is his father and mother, Keith and Barbara Blauvelt, sister-in-law Maxyne Blauvelt, nephews Randy Dean Blauvelt, Steven Petersen, and Nick Petersen. Celebration of life services for Severt will be held on Sunday, April 23, 2023, at 2:30p.m. at the Bethel Assembly of God Church in Thedford, Nebraska. Cremation was chosen. Inurnment will be at Hillcrest Cemetery in Thedford following the service. Memorials may be made to the family, Bethel Assembly of God or Hillcrest Cemetery in Thedford.
