Blake Lee Johnson
November 22, 1996 - April 20, 2019
With deepest sorrow and heartbreak, we announce that Blake Lee Johnson, age 22, our most beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, passed away suddenly on April 20, 2019.
Blake was born in New Haven, CT and grew up in Trumbull, CT. From an early age, he delighted his family and friends with his silly humor and beautiful, infectious smile. It was clear, early on, that Blake had incredible musical talent. He mastered the guitar, taught himself to play the piano and use the electrical equipment to mix his musical compositions. He hoped one day to write, record and perform his songs. Blake loved to travel, visiting Africa, Thailand and Germany. He had a love for all animals, and they, in turn, were drawn to his gentle demeanor. He also enjoyed swimming, ice hockey, snowboarding and skateboarding but always returned to his first love — writing and performing music. More than anything, though, Blake will be remembered for his love and compassion for his family and friends.
Blake will be missed every day by his mother, Moya Waters-Limia, his stepfather, Gene Limia, his adoring sister, Devin Christina Johnson, his loving grandparents, Bernard and Nina Waters of Liberty Township, OH and Jean and Bob Johnson of Branford, CT and his loving aunts, uncles, cousins and the many great friends. Blake was predeceased by his father, Jeffrey Layne Johnson.
Those who knew Blake, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. Blake had so much goodness and such a capacity to bring happiness and laughter to others. The earth is a dimmer place without him. We are heartbroken, but comforted that our memory of his larger than life personality, beautiful heart and soulful songs will be treasured forever.
We will gather to celebrate Blake’s life on May 16, 2019 at 5:00 pm at the Glick Family Funeral Home, 3600 North Federal Highway, Boca Raton, FL 33431.
