Remember Blake as a paperboy in 1954.Had the privilege of meeting and working with him 1997 til we retired in 2003. One hellava guy. God Bless him and his family.

Safe trip all the way, cousin and give my love to everyone, once your there.
Blake Brown is my Uncle and one of my very favorite people I have ever known. His house was always open to me and I could visit any time day or night and never be turned away. He never yelled at me and always had a smile and sometimes taught me some kind of lesson as I grew up and I always considered him an extension of his own father, my Grandpa, Blake Brown. He was a lot of fun and always told great stories about my Dad and all the antics that went on at the racetrack or in the neighborhood. I will always remember him with a can of beer in his hand as will most everyone else. I don't think he would have been the same man without it. He never gave me a beer because I was underage and for that he is to be commended. He set a good example. As a sign of respect, I always made sure I never personally stole a can of his beer. I got my younger cousin Brucie to do it.
It is with a sad heart that we say goodbye to Blake, he will be missed. God Bless his family in their time of sorrow.
