James G. Blevins, 87, of Copake, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family on September 13, 2023. He was born on July 27, 1936 to the late Rev.

He worked for Custom Extrusion in Sheffield for 34 years before retiring and spending more time with his family. He was a skilled blacksmith whose work can still be found around the area and in family members' homes. His other hobbies included hunting, fishing, gardening and his John Deere Tractor.
