It is with deep sadness that the family of Blake Benson announces his passing on August 19, 2021 at the age of 66 years.

Treasuring his memory are his loving wife of 17 years Ann. His children Blair (Brianna McLaggan), Grant (Lisa Hansen), Ashley (Derrick Hittinger). His step children David (Caroline) Gower, Tracy (Jeff Dickey) and Darren (Colleen) Carlson. His grandchildren Michelle (Darren) Bailey, Wyatt, Natasha and Savannah Dickey, Jackson and Riley Benson, and Harvey Hittinger. His sisters Dixie Soetaert, Marge (Art) Moore, and Ivy Huntley. As well as numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Dr Amira Muncner, the staff at Morinville Home Care, and the Palliative care teams for all their support. Also, a big thank you to Lisa Hansen who made it possible for him to stay home, and Shae-Lynn Seib for watching the boys so Lisa could help.
