“As long as I have known Blake, he always knew how to lighten up a situation with one of his hilarious jokes or his sarcastic comments. There was never a dull moment with Blake. He was always the life of the party, and never by design; it was just his personality. Everyone who ever met Blake loved him.”
–Bryce Barlow and Kevin Druffel

“Blake is and will always be one the best friends I have ever know; he was the most trustworthy, respectable, and joyful person I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. Blake would go out of his way to help you out would always have your back and stand up for you, he was loved by everyone. I share many great memories with Blake from living next to each other in the dorms in Brown Hall to the late nights sitting around the fire at the ranch. He will be missed by many. I love you brother, thanks for all the great memories. Rest in Peace.
–Stefan Wilson
