JOBIT: Blasland, Warren Vincent Jr. [MC1966 RIP] on 2017-05May-11


Warren Vincent Blasland, Jr.

Warren Vincent Blasland, Jr., 72, of Wellington, Florida, passed away Thursday, May 11 surrounded by his loved ones.

Born on January 16, 1945, in New York City, Warren moved to Liverpool, New York at the age of two. He grew up in a devout Catholic home, the oldest of six boys, each became an altar boy at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church. Warren was a student at Liverpool High School where he excelled as a Varsity baseball pitcher. After graduation, Warren continued his studies at Manhattan College where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering and later attended Syracuse University, receiving his Master of Science Degree in Sanitary Engineering.

Shortly thereafter, he began a noteworthy career at O’Brien and Gere where he quickly rose to become a Senior Vice President. Warren then pursued and achieved his aspiration of beginning his own engineering company with the successful establishment of Blasland, Bouck & Lee. He served as President, CEO and Chairman of the Board, eventually opening up sixteen branches nationwide.

In the 1990s, Warren relocated to Boca Raton, where he launched a new engineering and financial consulting company, Blasland Consulting Services.

Additionally, several patents bear Warren’s name. He positively affected innumerable families around the country, as he created nearly 1,000 jobs through his enterprises.

Although he was deeply committed to his many professions, Warren had an unparalleled sense of adventure and one of his greatest achievements was living life to the fullest. He was happiest when horseback riding through the Adirondack woods with dear friends, scuba-diving with sharks, exploring the world, unraveling his famous original stories on a whim to his delighted children, and spending time at the Fourth Lake “red camp” with his beloved family.
