JERSEYVILLE – Richard Lee Dublo, 59, passed away at 8:09 p.m. Sunday, March 14, 2021 at his home in Jerseyville, following a period of declining health.
He was born on June 17, 1961 in Elsah, Illinois and was the son of the late Carl and Virginia (Joplin) Dublo. Rick grew up in Jersey County as part of a large family, learning early on the value of hard work.
He was employed on the Barge Lines for a period of time, and spent much of his life working in Construction as a Roofer, until his health no longer allowed him to do so.
He married the former Duwana (Wright) Blackorby on September 19, 2007 in Jerseyville and together they have been blessed with 13 years of marriage.
He was truly a jack of all trades and enjoyed building things, most especially furniture pieces. He thoroughly enjoyed his time spent fishing, and did so as often as he could.
Surviving are his wife, Duwana Dublo of Jerseyville; two sons, Derrick Dublo (wife Chandra) and their son, Derrick Jr., of Dow and Shane Dublo of Troy; two step-daughters, April Blackorby Reynolds (husband Tyler) and their children, Emma and Zooey, of Elko, Nevada; Destiny Blackorby and her son, Jaylen, of Godfrey; four sisters, Elda and Rusty Acord of Missouri, Carlin Brown of North Carolina, Cilda and Kenny Young of Carrollton, Linda Cadmus of Benld; two brothers, John and Valerie Dublo of Godfrey and Carl Dublo of Jerseyville; along with numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Gayle Hllingsworth and a sister in infancy; as well as two brothers in-law, David Brown and Gary Cadmus.
No public services are planned at this time and memorials may be given to a Charity of one’s choice.
