Chad Joseph Blatt

Chad Joseph Blatt (Joe), 29, a member of the Chippewa Cree Tribe, whose Indian name was Thunder Bird Horse, died Sunday, Oct. 3, following a brave battle with leukemia.

Joe was born Feb. 27, 1981, in Havre, Mont., to Kenneth Zane Blatt-St. Marks and Midge Strike. He grew up in Rocky Boy, Mont., and Ceres, Calif. He graduated from Box Elder High School in 1999, and after high school, he moved to Denver, Colo., where he worked and made a home for himself and his family.

Joe was a very kind person who loved to laugh and joke around. He could bring a smile to anyone's face. His main focus in life was his two sons, Edward and Zane, and making sure that they were well taken care of. They were his pride and joy, and he loved them very much. He loved spending time with them, playing video games, building things together with Lego's or going to the mountains to fish, hike or just be in the outdoors. Mostly they just enjoyed spending time together.

Joe made many strong, lasting friendships, both in Rocky Boy and Denver, which was evidenced by all the visits, compassion and care he and his family received after he became ill. He will be dearly missed by everyone who had the pleasure to know him.

Joe is survived by his two sons, Edward Joseph and Zane Peyton Blatt; and their mother, Nicole Parisian, all of Denver, Colo .; his mother, Midge Strike of Billings, Mont .; his father, Kenny (Karen) Blatt-St Marks; his sisters, India (Adam) Blatt-Demontiney, Lacey St. Marks, and Zana St. Marks; and a brother, Kenneth (Twila) Blatt Jr., all of Rocky Boy Mont .; grandmothers, Diane Larsen of Fort Myers, Fla., Christine Han and Mary Jane LaMere of Rocky Boy; his godfather, Floyd St. Marks Sr .; and four nieces and five nephews.

Joe was preceded in death by his sister, Brandi Lee Blatt; grandfathers, Joe Larsen Orville St. Marks and Richard Han; his uncle, Vance Blatt; aunties, Tina and Faye deen Blatt; his godmother, Carol St. Marks; and his great-grandmother, Roseanne Saddler.

Joe's wake will be Oct. 7 and 8, at Rocky Boy Catholic Church. Burial services will be 11 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 9, at the Catholic Church. Burial will follow at the Catholic Church. Holland & Bonine will be in charge of arrangements.
