Willie E. "Bill" Blackburn, a decorated merchant marine veteran and a longtime manager for Firestone Tire, died Wednesday from complications after surgery for an aneurysm. He was 81 and lived in Carney. During World War II, Mr. Blackburn was a lieutenant aboard a Liberty ship that carried supplies on the dangerous "Murmansk Run," between Britain and Russia, braving polar ice, storms and submarines to support Russia's efforts in the war against Germany. For his efforts, Mr. Blackburn received the Russian Medal from the Soviet government, which might have failed in its defense against Hitler's armies if it hadn't been for the American aid shipped to the port of Murmansk.
