With a heavy heart we announce the passing of our beloved son and stepson, Blake. He was a cherished grandson, brother, nephew, cousin and friend to so many.
Blake's favourite person in the world was his father… and he loved working with him at Sanders Steel. Nothing made him happier than to work and hang out with his Dad.
He loved the arts, fine dining, travel, reading and writing. He was precocious but he also was caring and compassionate, especially to his Nonna and Nonno. He gave them peace and comfort in their final years. For this Blake we are eternally grateful.
His greatest love and passion was linguistics. He spoke several languages including Italian, French and Russian and a bit of Chinese. He was mathematically gifted and participated in the Euclid Competition in High School. Blake loved attending York University and being part of campus life. Blake played the piano beautifully. He was polite, curious and one of smartest people you could ever meet.
Though he left this world far too soon, he will never be forgotten. Blake will remain in our hearts and minds forever.
Rest in Peace
The 23rd Psalm
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
