Jack Blotsky, 82, of Williston, ND passed away on Monday, March 13, 2023 at CHI St. Alexius Hospital in Williston, ND, surrounded by his loving family.

Jack was born on August 22, 1940 in Flasher, ND To Joe and Susie (Tischmak) Blotsky.

Jack attended schools in Flasher, ND and graduated from Flasher in 1959. After graduation he moved to Bismarck, ND and this is where he met the love of his life, Sharon Radke. They were married on May 3rd, 1960 and to this union they had three children, Randy, Monte and Penny.

Jack had several jobs in Bismarck before moving the family to Minot, ND. He worked as a mechanic at Wesley Motors in Minot for five years. In 1973 he took a job at HC Smith Construction and while employed there, he moved the family to Lakota, ND, Great Falls, MT and Leeton, MO.

In 1980, Jack and his family returned to North Dakota where he started his own business in Williston; Blotsky’s Welding. He welded endless hours on drilling rigs. Jack fabricated equipment in the Oilfield and in his shop. He still was welding until the last two weeks of his life.

Away from work, Jack enjoyed racing. He started racing in 1965 in Minot and raced various classes through 1981. Jacks real love was sprint cars, building his own from the ground up.

He was President of the Nodak Speedway for two years and President of the Williston Basin Speedway for 20+ years, making him the longest running President. Jack was also inducted in the North Dakota Hall of Fame, Nodak Speedway in 2014.

Jack’s greatest love was his family, he was very proud of his children and grandchildren. He was a loving husband, father, grandpa, great-grandpa, son, brother, uncle, nephew and friend. Often reaching out to extended family and friends on a regular basis just to see how things were going.

Sharon and family-so sorry to hear of Jack's passing. We had some good times with you two. Steve spent plenty of time at Jack's shop-making sausage, drinking a beer or two and talking racing. He was Steve's go to guy. We can't make the funeral as we are still in AZ. Prayers to your family. Sprint cars forever and the thumbless hand would go up.
