On July 3, 2022, Blake was the victim of a brutal and almost unbelievable act in the early morning hours. He was doused in gasoline and set on fire. Although he was able to run to a nearby store fairly quickly, he has suffered severe burns from head to toe with 72% being 3rd degree (some areas to the bone). Although this is the story that’s spreading across the nation, this is not HIS story. He is a son, a father, a brother, a cousin, a friend, and all around a good looking and goofy charismatic man who really wanted to see the greatest parts of life. He was steadfast in experiencing everything first hand and with his intelligence, that at times was far beyond his years, he was able to gain wisdom that only comes with first hand experiences. He was the type of person that could push your last button then the next second have you crying laughing. His smile was contagious and his laugh was infectious. He had a heart that made him impossible to ignore and giving his last was a habit for those who needed anything. He is fighting for his life and every minute is a blessing at this point. Pray hard for this beautiful soul and let’s hope his light has many more days to illuminate. Once you knew him, you will forever be impacted by him and will never forget Blake! The funds will go to any of Blakes needs as he fights to pull through the toughest battle of his life! Also help support his kids and lessen the burden that’s his absence will bring so his only focus is getting better. Anything else will be put in a trust for Blake since he will never be able to do the laborious work that he is used to if he is ever able to work again. God is powerful and prayers do work!
