Blake Adam Pine, age 36, of Tucson, AZ passed away March 25, 2023. He is now in his heavenly home with the man he trusted most in this world, God. He is survived by a loving wife LaDonna Pine, their 4 children Addison (14), Danika (12), Easton (3) and Stetson (1); his father James (Stacey) Pine, his siblings Paige (William) and their children Madeline, Robert and Theodore Parker; Katherine Pine (Jordan Hauser) and their son Jaxon; Alexander and Abigail Pine; his mother Ronlyn Farmer, 6 uncles, 9 cousins and countless friends.
Blake grew up in Columbus, GA and attended Northside High. Though Blake did not star in high school sports, he played soccer, hockey and skateboarded most places. He was fiercely loyal to his friends and especially his family. He moved to Tucson 18 years ago where he started his career in the auto shop/collision industry. Blake created a name for himself in this industry working his way up from the car wash bay at O’Reilly Collison Center (11) to running a shop as the General Manager at Caliber Collision Center (7). A strong work ethic and providing for his family is what drove his success daily. Blake always knew someone everywhere he went, and someone always knew him.
Blake was a people person and had a knack for leaving a positive imprint on those he befriended. Blake’s infectious smile and big heart were easy to love. Blake enjoyed doing many things, but the great outdoors, the Georgia Bulldogs, his friends and his family especially brought him the most joy.
Blake’s family appreciates continued prayers and in lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Blake’s memory to the UGA General Fund - https://give.uga.edu/georgia-fund/.
LaDonna has requested for memories to be shared on a notecard and brought to the services. This will be a way for the family to always remember Blake, read aloud together and hold dear to their hearts down the road.
Services will be held at Pantano Christian Church, Friday, April 21st at 10:00am - 1755 S Houghton Rd, 85748. All are welcome.
A memorial will be placed in Gardner Canyon at a later date.
