There was no greater role Blake played in his life than husband to Tricia and father to Carter, Cooper, and Conner. Blake never missed a practice or a game and was easily his boys’ biggest cheerleader. Blake often coached his boys in sports both on and off the field, it was easy to tell he was their biggest role model. Blake’s younger brother, Carey, knows that feeling well as he always looked up to Blake and idolized him. So many have. Blake was a man of strong character, selfless devotion and will be missed by so many.
