It is with great sadness that the family of John Blake wish to announce the passing of a beloved husband, father and grandfather.
John is survived by his wife of forty years, Ruth, and their two daughters Bobbi Jean (Lance) Goldy and Shannon (Alex) Molnar and beautiful grandson Cameron Goldy. John was a strong family man who was loving and kind to all those close to him. John spent the majority of his working career as a supervisor at the Crofton Mill, where he made many friends during his thirty-five years of employment there. He spent most of his time away from work on the water enjoying boating with his family or fishing with his buddies. John died peacefully on November 12, 2005 at age 62 years, after a short and courageous battle with cancer. Private family service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cancer Society would be appreciated.
