He attended Flour Bluff ISD and the swim coach recognized his ability as a swimmer, when he was in Junior High. He recruited Blake early, and as he entered FBHS as a freshman, he was on the team. Blake was the team captain of the swim team, made it to regional’s in Austin and held the back stroke record of 56.03 at FBHS for 10 years. He attended UT Austin for a short time and received his Associates Degree in Liberal Arts from Del Mar College in Corpus Christi.

Blake leaves behind so many friends that have reached out to various family members to give love, support, strength and share memories. Blake had a penchant to make us all laugh and see the crazier side of life. He was generous with his time and love, worked hard, sang loudly and felt deeply. Blake loved all things aquatic ~ especially penguins. Blake is now in the company of two family members that he loved dearly; Michael Clements and John Garrett (Big Poppa) and Queequay undoubtedly is on his lap. Rest in peace Muss.
