Howard Blake

BLAKE, Howard (Howie) W.

Don’t grieve for me from pain I’m free.

I’m following the path laid out for me.

From Heaven I heard Flo give me a call

I turned around and left it all.

Passed away peacefully with family at his side on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at the age of 82. Survived by his loving family: daughter Laurene and her fiancé Joe and granddaughter Shannon; son Ward and his wife Betty, grandson Brandon and granddaughter Montana; son Glen and his fiancé Elaine and Glen’s children: Eryn, Tyler and Bethlyn; sister Rhoda Cogbill; brother Arnie and his wife Peggy; brother-in-law George Benson and his wife Carol; as well as nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his beloved wife Florene. There will be a private family service.
