Blake passed away peacefully and is now reunited with the love of his life, LaVyna “Johnnie” Humphrey. Together they loved to dance and play cards with family and friends.
Blake was committed to farming and selling insurance for Nodak Mutual. In the farming community he was often referred to as “Farmer.” In Blake’s words, “To most people it’s just dirt, but to a farmer, it’s potential.”
Blake’s favorite passion was his involvement with the church. He thoroughly enjoyed delivering a powerful message of spirituality to many congregations.
Blake was preceded in death by his wife, LaVyna; his parents, Bernard and Lena (Dullum) Humphrey; his sister, Audrey (Herb) Johnson; and his brothers, Ken, Tom, and Budd.
Blake is survived by his son, Michael (Pennie) Humphrey; his daughter, Marcia Humphrey; and his two favorite granddaughters, Keely (Charlie) Steele, and Casey Humphrey. Also surviving are his sisters-in-law, Helen, Joan, and Ona.
As Blake would say in his best Paul Harvey voice, “And now you know the rest of the story!”
