We are both shocked to hear of our friend Blake’s passing. Over the 20 years we knew Blake we always enjoyed our meetings with him and being greeted by his smiling face and positive attitude. We would trade life stories, our mutual struggles and successes and always leave feeling better than when we arrived. It was always breakfast at Whitespot on Lonsdale where he was loved by the staff who knew him and as we aged we enjoyed the changes in our group order from mega-breakfasts to healthier choices. We would always get around to family at some point and Blake always shared his deep love for his wife and kids. We marked time and life events with our meetings with Blake and he will never be forgotten as the years go by. He was an awesome human being and will be sorely missed. Our deepest sympathies to his family.

My deepest condolences to Blake's family for their loss. In the 15 years I've know him he has given me invaluable advice in my professional career as well as life. Whenever we had our lunch meetings we could easily go on for hours about many things. When my dad was having health issues Blake openly shared with me his experiences when his father was ill. He helped me get through a difficult time in my life and I will be forever grateful for his mentorship. That's the kind of guy Blake was, money wasn't his motivation, he genuinely cared about his clients. I am saddened to lose a good friend, he will missed.

Back when I was just starting out as soon to be graduating dentist, I was referred to Blake for my insurance needs. However, I soon saw how much Blake took care of the people around him and those he "worked" for. What started as a professional relationship, became a friendship as well. He helped me in so many ways when it came to being a professional and was always there to give support however he could. Our conversations went from "work" to how I was doing, my mom, sister, and life outside of work. We would share so much because we had a genuine interest in each other's well being and the people in our lives. Blake always said he never considered what he did as "work", as he genuinely enjoyed helping professionals. He was one of the kindest and most giving souls I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. My deepest sympathies and condolences to Blake's family.

To the Hambury family, we are so very sorry to hear of Your loss. Blake was such an exuberant larger than life man. Over the years he met with us on many occasions to chat and discuss the policies we had with him. We often trailed off into conversations about family and life and the like. And he always spoke of you and your girls in such a proud loving manor. We enjoyed these meetings and always left in a great mood due to Blake’s positive energetic demeanour. We pray that you find comfort in all
of the good and joyful time’s you all had. We are so very sorry for your loss.
