Island Cremations & Funeral Home ~ Merritt Island, Florida ~ 321-454-3331



February 23, 1942 - March 14, 2020

U.S. Veteran


Ronald W. Blaisdell , 78, died March 14, 2020 in the place he has called home for the last 32 years.

Seeking some sunshine and fun, he moved his family to Merritt Island, FL in 1988 from Massachusetts. He embraced the Brevard County Florida lifestyle.  Seeing a need for clean water he decided to join the growing business of water reclamation.

While here he attended Brevard Community College to achieve his certificates/degree in water reclamation. He went on to become the Water Reclamation Inspector for the City of Cocoa Beach. After retiring, being “retired” did not fit his personality, so he took on another endeavor. He headed back to school and achieved his certificates in Microsoft operations and software. He opened a successful small business in Cocoa to repair computers.

He was a proud veteran, serving our Army in the Korean War. His unit was the 21st Artillery 5th Infantry Division and he is a life member of the VFW.

He will be missed by his son Robert Blaisdell of Massachusetts, his daughter Renee Blaisdell-Nagony of Georgia, a daughter in law, a son in law and 6 grandchildren that he loved dearly.

At Ronald’s request, he didn’t want any services, but remember him as the strong, vibrant, compassionate, warm hearted person that he is.  Until we meet again….
