Charles Nicholas Blatt, born November 30, 1935, in Perry, Oklahoma, passed away on April 27, 2024, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. A man of great faith and integrity, Charles served his country in the US Army Reserves while embarking on a 35-year career with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT). He retired in 1993 as the Branch Manager for Utilities but continued as a consultant for ODOT until 2016.

On October 7, 1961, Charles married the love of his life at St. Mary Catholic Church in Guthrie. Together, they raised their family in Moore, Oklahoma, before retiring and returning to Guthrie to enjoy golf, gardening, family, and OSU football.
