Blake Smith Boyette
October 3, 2000 -November 17, 2022
ZEBULON – Blake Smith Boyette, 22, died unexpectedly on Thursday, November 17, 2022. Though he left us way too soon, we find comfort knowing he is in the arms of Jesus. Blake was a senior at East Carolina University completing his bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering.
Blake loved with all of his heart and never failed to show that love to his family and friends. He always had a smile on his face, a hug in his arms, and the ability to make people laugh. The energy and light that he brought into the world was unmatched. Blake lived life to the fullest and everything he did, he did all the way. He was an athlete and a fierce competitor, who enjoyed playing sports and video games. Most recently he played intramural sports at ECU, and played softball and golf with his dad and brothers. He was the king of tailgating at ECU football games and enjoyed cooking and organizing a good time for his friends. Blake loved being outdoors. He enjoyed skim-boarding at the beach, hunting, fishing and riding his four wheeler with the music blasting. Blake lived more in 22 years than most live in a lifetime.
Blake was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Royce & Eunice Boyette.
Blake is survived by his parents, Robert Allen & Wanda Creech Boyette, his brothers, Austin Boyette (Kayley), Kyle Boyette, maternal grandparents, Grady & Linda Creech, nephew Grady Boyette, many special aunts, uncles, and cousins, and his beloved dogs, Scout & Nash.
