Sven D. Blumquist, 23, of Warren, PA., died Saturday, July 7, 2018

at the Great Blue Heron Music Festival grounds, Sherman, N.Y.

after an accidental drowning. He was born March 18, 1995 in

Brookville, PA. Sven was a Warren resident his entire life and a

2013 graduate of Warren Area High School. He had been

employed with numerous businesses. He had been an active

member of North Warren Troop 13 Boy Scouts of America and

was one project away from receiving his Eagle Scout. While in

school he was a volunteer with Struthers Library Theatre where

he had roles in school plays. He was an extremely talented

musician, especially enjoyed playing guitar and keyboard. He

enjoyed writing music, canoeing, hiking at Jakes Rocks and

meditating. He is lovingly remembered by his family as a person

who was the real deal. You saw the real person when you looked

at him, he wore no masks. He was highly intelligent and was a

person who always saw the good in others. He will be greatly

missed by his family and friends. A song he was currently in the

making, titled “Determine” went like this, So much wasted

potential while sitting and thinking I’m special, although I’ll

admit I’m a measure of odd, illustrated façade in depth, yet

spectral, digressive, obsessive, and constantly pensive. What

more could I say but objective?

He is survived by his mother, Michelle R. Weaver Baker and her

husband, Kurt Baker of Warren, PA., his father, Robert A.

Blumquist and his wife, Melissa of North East, PA., his Paternal

Grandmother – Margaret “Peg” A. Morton Blumquist of Warren,
