Coby Bleakney Obituary

Coby Alen Bleakney, 12, of South Zanesville, went home to be with our Lord, March 22, 2018.

He was born September 4, 2005 in Zanesville, son of Chad Bleakney and Tammy Seastrand Bleakney.

In addition to his parents he is survived by his brothers, Eric (Alisha) Swingle, T.J. (Keyli) Swingle, Blake (Emmalee) Swingle; nieces, Madison Schneider, Sophie Swingle, Kadence Swingle, Hayden Swingle, Paisleigh Swingle; nephew on the way, Ezra Swingle; maternal grandmother, Dianna Kay Seastrand, paternal grandparents, Melanie & Butch Bleakney; too many aunts, uncle & cousins to list; special friend, Jayden Graves.

Coby was the smartest, softest sweetest boy with the kindest heart.  He was loved more than anything in this world. His parents fought the biggest battles for him with family by their side.

Bullying is real in every child’s life.  As parents we should talk with our children about bullying and to teach them to stand up when something is seen or heard. No matter the age no parent should ever have to bury their child.

Private family services will be held.
