Blaze Montgomery

Hello, my name is Gwen Shroyer and I have the awesome privilege of teaching high school students in Cleveland, Tennessee. One of those students that really connected with what we were doing in my Rockband class was Blaze Montgomery. He was gifted by God to play guitar and was eager to share his talent with our band, 'Quadrant D' formally known as BCHS Rockband.

Blaze was instrumental in four years of the class and led the progression and focus each day as we rehearsed, recorded and produced a stage show for the album of songs we chose to display on that given year. He was very humble in his presence and stature but shined at every level of production that we accomplished. Blaze also performed on stage as the character, Stacee Jaxx in Rock of Ages, in one of our high school musicals. His performance personified everything about rock and roll in that given platform. Following high school, Blaze set out to play more gigs and use his talents to the fullest playing in several local bands alongside his father, Jason, who is an extremely talented guitarist in his own right. Blaze was also engaged to be married to the love of his life whom he met while in high school. He treated Michaela like royalty and always had a twinkle in his eye when she would call. They were to be married next year and set a course together for a full life. Blaze also talked lovingly about his mother, Valerie, whom he adored and loved to spend time with. He had a great life.

Unfortunately and to the dismay of all who know him, Blaze recently died in a car accident. The news of his passing was devastating to all and travelled quickly through social media, phone calls and text messaging. His family is now dealing with how to best honor Blaze which is why I am reaching out to you. Please consider giving to help the family of Blaze Montgomery during this daunting time of need. Any amount that you give will help and be appreciated.
