“On October 7, 2020, our father, Joseph Hoffer Blatchford, passed away peacefully. We, his three children, Andrea, Nicholas, and Antonia, and our mother Winnie, were by his side. There are many things that our dad may be publicly remembered for: his international development work as the founder of Accion, his service as Director of the Peace Corps, and his professional life as an attorney.”
