Blake Alexander White
Aug. 21, 2008 April 5, 2010
On Monday, April 5, God called back one of his perfect children. A beautiful baby boy of 19 months, Blake Alexander White, was taken from us suddenly in his sleep. Blake was born Aug. 21, 2008, to proud parents, Samuel Palmer White and Stacey Leigh Baptista White in Novato, Calif. To say Blake was an extraordinary boy is an understatement. His smile melted hearts and his personality made people laugh and smile in every situation. Blake’s first instinct was to love and love he did. We are crushed by our loss, but we will continue to search for comfort in our memories of the pitter patter of feet up and down the halls, the memory of his head on our shoulder, his big open-mouth sloppy kisses, but most of all, his beautiful infectious smile. He was all boy. Give him a tractor, some dirt and a ball and he would be happy for hours. He lived a life full of happiness and was constantly surrounded by his friends, his cousins, aunts and uncles, both sets of grandparents, but most of all the unwavering love of the two he called “hot Momma” and “hot Dadda.”
Blake is survived by and will be deeply missed by his loving parents; great grandfather, Dr. Gerald Thomas; grandparents, Dr. Palmer White and Allison White and Stanley and Kathleen Baptista; aunts and uncles, Shawna and Aaron Martella, Jason and Leslie Baptista, Nathan White, Eric and Carrie White, Alex White and Penelope Worley, Deborah and Rick Zimbleman; along with his many loving cousins and friends.
Services will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, April 16 at the Presbyterian Church of Novato, 710 Wilson Ave., Novato, CA. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Blake White Memorial Fund (  Part of the proceeds will be used for the services. The bulk of the funds will be used in partnership with the Indian Valley Junior Golf Foundation to set up a scholarship fund to continue Blake’s tradition of enriching the lives of all those around him. The Indian Valley Junior Golf Foundation helps children go to golf camps, play in competitions and go to college.
