Kenneth Blake Obituary
Kenneth G. Blake

Our loving Kenneth G. Blake, born October 11, 1926, passed away peacefully on October 30, 2016. He was one of a kind and we all knew how well he could tell a good story or make one up to please you.

He was an educator, first in Torrance and then for many years in the Hawthorne School District, first as a teacher, then a principal and finally assistant superintendent. His light especially shone at York School, proof being that many "Yorkies" kept in touch for many years. He retired in 1994 and continued with his hobbies of tap dancing and working on his prized MG.

He leaves his wife, Lois, of 65 years and three wonderful children; Linda Smisko (Steve), Kevin, and Benjamin (Steve); and two grandchildren, Blake (Katie) Smisko and Alex Smisko.

The family's prayer for him is that he will now be able to remember all the good times and how wonderful our life was. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the actionalz.org. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits
