Frank Brent Blake passed away May 21, 2021, after a long battle with renal disease and cancer.

Brent was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, on October 25, 1939, to Frank Keith Blake and Beth Reynolds Blake. He spent most of his life living in St. Anthony, Idaho.

His early years were spent working with his father and brother Richard (Dick) Blake on the family sheep ranch. Dad was taught at an early age to work hard. He worked with his father until his retirement, then began to farm with his brother. Ultimately, dad spent his working life as a teacher, a vocation he enjoyed immensely and showed great talent for.

Dad married Sharon Ruth Hansen on June 13, 1962. They were married just short of 59 years and raised 5 children. Dad loved family more than anything and growing up there were more family get togethers than could be counted. Dad raised his children surrounded by his parents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins that were truthfully almost siblings to his children.

He pursued higher education at Ricks College, BYU, University of Utah and the University of Wisconsin. He valued education greatly and had several graduate degrees. He taught school as a profession, but truly it was more of a passion. He ruined many shirts and ties doing chemistry demonstrations, usually because of holes burned through them.

Survivors include his siblings Richard Blake (Rhea), Kristy Pehrson (John); wife Sharon Blake; daughter, Loreli Blake; son, Bruce (Yvette) Blake; son, Brig (Jacki) Blake; daughter, Nicol; daughter, Hilary (Matt) Burgoyne; 16 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren. Brent was preceded in death by his parents; a younger brother (George); and a granddaughter (Sophie).

The family would like to thank the staff at Yellowstone Dialysis who took such great care of dad for the past 6 years. We would also like to thank Advanced Home Health, Solice Hospice, Brent Parker, the Twin Groves Ward and all the wonderful neighbors who stopped by, offered support or lent a hand. You truly made the difficult bearable.

Brent Blake was my neighbor when I was growing up and I admired his character even when I was young. I remembered him leaving and returning as a missionary and that memory is one of the factors that led me to serve a mission as well.

Knew Brent as a neighbor and even finally as a teacher at South Fremont High. Before I enrolled at the U. of Wisconsin, he told me how hard it was there! Brent was always an example of a very decent, kind, and exemplary individual, and I'm sure all those who knew him and depended on him will miss him greatly, but hopefully they can take comfort in the fact that he moved from the "testing place" to the indescribable peace of the "resting place."
