The Fayette County coroner’s office has asked the public for help finding the family of a 63-year-old man that died Nov. 27.

Congrave Achilles Blanton died after complications in a heart surgery, according to the coroner’s office.

Blanton served in the Army during the Vietnam War and was honorably discharged.

His daughter, Lisa Baker, of Winchester was listed as his next of kin, but she was not living at the address provided.
