The most difficult day in a family's life, we say farewell to our son, brother and friend. To those of you who knew Blake you are already aware of the type of person he was and these words you will read are already in your memory. To those who were not as fortunate, these words will give you a sense of the type of man he was and as an ideal for which we should strive. Blake has been often described as a gentle soul. He was pure of heart and had great sensitivity for the world around him. He had a way with people that made them feel comfortable around him and infected others to gravitate toward him. Blake exuded kindness and pulled generosity and humanity out from everyone he touched. He was everyone's best friend.
Blake was happiest when he spent time in the outdoors with his friends and family. He was an avid duck hunter and loved to go fishing. Blake found enjoyment from playing several athletic sports and had great enthusiasm for weightlifting. Blake loved to eat, his passion for food was known by all that loved him.
He is survived by his mother and stepfather, Jill and Tye Hodgin; father, Brad Stuteville; brother, Mitchell Alvord; grandmother, Judy Lane; grandparents, Reese and Doris Stuteville; aunts and uncles, Dixie Hermesch, Reese Stuteville, and Jeff and Pam Renick; cousins, Jeffrey Renick, Zach Stuteville, and John and Gabriella Hermesch.
A Celebration of Life will be held Wednesday, November 10, 2010, 1:00pm at Hawthorne Funeral Home, 1825 E. College Way, Mount Vernon with a reception to follow in the Hawthorne Reception Room.
