Blake Kenneth Dobbie
July 31,1959 - June 23, 2021
Beloved husband of Bonnie Dobbie. Much loved father of Christopher (Melissa Miller), Blake (Lauren Anderson), Dillon (Wynter Berry), and Aaron.
Baby brother to Mark, Linda (Bev Crawford), Rae (Dolores), and Wayne (Darlene)
Brother-in-law to Karen St. Louis (Rodney), and Dale Wylie.
Predeceased by parents Warren Keith (Ken), and Bertha.
Loved and loving Uncle and Great Uncle to a large bunch of the best kids we could ever know.
Blake was felled by a stroke in July 2014. His physical ability was severely affected and to help him find the courage to continue Christopher and Melissa gave him Caden, Cillian, and Caleigha (Princess Pia). These 3 kids brought him so much love and happiness!
Blake always walked to the beat of his own drum, as anyone who knew him will tell you. Who else would go 'crick' fishing with a 12 foot pole? He managed to get to do this in the last week of his life, which makes me so happy. We always told him he was born 200 years too late.
Blake's life was cut so short, and I know his advice would be to grab life by the tail, don't leave anything until it's too late, and make it one hell of a ride. Put a whole lot of "that E word" into everything you do, and Never Give Up.
