Christian Blake Obituary
Westminster, VT - Christian Blake, 83, died peacefully, at his home on Thursday, April 27, 2017 after a long, courageous battle with cancer.

Born Raymond John Blake on October 16, 1933, he was the son of Carl and Marion (Fair) Blake. He was a graduate of Bellows Falls High School and attended Arizona State University. He served in the US Air Force, worked in real estate, and was known for his controversial editorials in the Brattleboro Reformer. He was also a member of the Westminster Congregational Church.

Christian loved the land: He was happiest when out of doors, in the woods, walking his property, communing with nature. He loved watching the wildlife on his land - the doe and her fawn, the red tailed hawk, and the many turkeys. He lived many years in California, Hawaii, and other states, but he always said, "Like the Salmon, I had to come home."

Christian is survived by his loving wife of 15 years, Sandra Bosbach-Blake. Also surviving is his son Mark Blake of Escondido, CA; his daughters Melanie Romano of San Diego, CA and Staci Freeman of Delray Beach, FL; his step children Johanna Fairbanks of Mt. Holly, VT, Sara Allen Druen of Springfield, VT, and Jason Allen of Andover, VT; his brothers Clifford and Gerald Blake; his sisters Carolyn Blake-Deyo, Linda Kenniston, Margaret Wareing, and Barbara Smith; and 16 grandchildren.

SERVICES: There will be a memorial service 1:00 p.m. Saturday, May 6th at the First Congregational Church of Westminster.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations in his memory may be made to VNH Hospice, 31 South Main Street, Brattleboro, VT 05301.
