Blake was the owner of Custom Design Decks in North Tonawanda. He also worked for various contractors in the area. He was a great guy and family man, and his mother said that he was “the best boy in town.” His smile would light up the room. He loved golf, the New York Yankees and fishing for the big ones at Chautauqua Lake.
Because of circumstance beyond our control we will have to meet at a later time to celebrate Blake’s life and remember his humor, his smile and his loving compassion for life. We will let you know when that time comes.
