Kalsey Blastow, 74 of Appleton, passed away January 3, 2022 at Sussman House in Rockport. He was born June 7, 1947 to John W. and Gleneida (Haskell) Blastow in Deer Isle where he was raised.
Kalsey was a Coast Guard veteran after 25 years of service (1966-1986). He grew up lobstering and never lost his love for the ocean. He retired from Coca-Cola after 22 years of employment (1987-2009). He gave everything he could back to the community helping wherever it was needed and was a prominent member of his local Legions once he retired.
A man with a heart that always wanted to be full, he loved being surrounded by family and friends. Kalsey had a personality that brought people together and put a smile on everyone’s face. The life of the party, he would find any opportunity to dance and would do so on any surface be it floor, table or even chairs. If the music was moving, so was he. A trouble maker thru and thru, Kalsey held unforgettable memories with everyone he knew. He would light up every gathering with his presence and finish most either diving on the floor for chips or having the room crying from laughter. He was a friend to any the moment he met them and would give them anything, even the shirt off his back. He enjoyed golfing, dancing, music, cigars, cooking and anything life would offer. Kalsey was a man of many things but most of all, a man who so loved his family and anyone willing to call him friend.
Leaving behind are his four daughters and two step sons with their spouses. Heather & Dale Pangakis, Kimberly & Jason O’Connell, Nicole Blastow & Keeley Jackson, Katelynn & Brandon Free, Brett & Wendy Chansky, Bryan & Melissa Chansky; his grandkids: Bryce Collamore, Brett Collamore, Sophie Pangakis, Dakota Pangakis, Cianne O’Connell, Christian O’Connell, Ciara O’Connell, Cayden O’Connell, Gage Free, Tucker Free, Jasmine & Shane Springer, Branden Chansky, Brianna Chansky and Brylee Chansky; his great grandkids: Melody Springer, Damon Springer, Maddison Springer and his siblings, Richard Quinn, Gilbert Blastow and Rachel and Larry Cole.
