Blaize M. Turzinski, age 15, passed away due to an accident on Friday, November 17, 2023. He was born to Josh Turzinski and Trisha Benbo on January 27, 2008, in Oshkosh.
Blaize was a Sophomore at Omro High School. He also had a part time job at Shady KR Farms (Kevin and Kim Radloff) and he loved working around the farm with Aaron Radloff. Blaize was looking forward to exploring a possible career in auto body and pulling car frames.
Blaize enjoyed spending time outside with friends and family especially camping, biking and swimming in the family pool, and really loved wearing his boots and working on and riding his 4 wheelers and dirt bike. He had a true passion for trail riding, goofing around with friends in the yard and trying out tricks at the track. From Legos, tiny magnets and Rubik’s cubes, to drawing and tinkering with engines Blaize was always on the move. He spent lots of time creating things with his 3-D printers after becoming interested in them through his Fab Lab class his Freshman year and was working on a model car he was especially proud of in the weeks preceding his passing.
Throughout his school years Blaize was involved in Football, Baseball and Band where he played the trumpet. Blaize spent a lot of time in the shop working on project vehicles with his dad. He was very excited about getting his driver’s license so he could show off his first truck, a project they were building together. Blaize was also a great carpenter and recently helped to build his mom her dream she-shed. When not busy with some project Blaize enjoyed playing video games and snuggling with his sister for movie nights.
Blaize is survived by his parents, Josh and Trisha, and his little sister, Shelby Turzinski. Blaize is also survived by his grandparents, Linda Renner and Steve and Judy Turzinski, loving aunts and uncles, many great-aunts and uncles, cousins and so many wonderful friends as well as his four-legged fur babies.
Blaize is preceded in death by his grandfathers Andy Ritchie and Dennis Renner.
A celebration of Blaize’s life will be held from 12PM until 3PM on Saturday, December 2, 2023, at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Homes-Westside (100 Lake Pointe Dr).
In lieu of flowers and other keepsakes, donations given will be used to plant a tree at Omro High School in memory of Blaize and a scholarship will be established in his name.
The world is a little less bright now and Blaize will be deeply and forever missed by many. Fly High Buddy.
