Wayne C. Bleasdale, Jr.

August 7, 1940 - February 11, 2024


Wayne Cartwright Bleasdale, Jr., 83, of Hamilton, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 11, 2024 at Serenity Hospice Inpatient Unit at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.

Born in Trenton, He resided in Hamilton Township where he lived with his wife, Janet Wright Bleasdale, who passed away in 2006. Growing up, the Jersey shore was one of his favorite places, where he passed time searching for self-described “treasures” under the boardwalk. He was a graduate of Trenton Central High School and a member of The Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, Local 5, working as journeyman mason and bricklayer for many years. He then became a Senior Building Inspector for Hamilton Township until retirement. Wayne was an avid saltwater fisherman and enjoyed countless weekends on his boat with first mate Janet, his children, and grandchildren. He was a big fan of NASCAR, Classic Country Music, Western movies, and was a lifelong member of the NRA. Later in life, Wayne was fond of visiting the marinas in Atlantic City “to watch the ships roll in” then hitting the casino to play the slots.  

Predeceased by his father, Wayne C. Bleasdale, who died in his youth; his mother and stepfather, Sara and Michael Kocon; his beloved wife, Janet Wright Bleasdale; and brother-in-law, John Forker; he is survived by his daughter and caregiver, Michelle Wilson and their loyal pup Virgil; daughter and son-in-law, Shirley and Todd Corino; son, Dale Wilson; his sisters, Joyce Forker and Michele Stanich and her husband, Michael; grandchildren, Joseph Tiedemann Jr., Sarah Tiedemann; Aaron Wilson and wife Heather; Cory Corino and wife Alyssa; a niece Joyce Lynn Rucci; several great-grandchildren; as well as other relatives and dear friends.
