Blake Edward Martin Paige

Tuesday, August 25, 2020

Blake Edward Martin Paige, age 30, of Louisville, Ky., and formerly of Jacksonville, Ala. and Rector, Ark., passed away August 21, 2020, at his home. Blake was the son of Earl Thomas Paige and Jennifer Lea (Martin) Paige.

He was known as being an optimist and always looking on the bright side of life. He brought sunshine and light to all that knew and loved him. He was always willing to help out whether it meant staying up all night and caring for his friends, or just listening. As a little boy he would state that he could fix that, and he always continued trying to do so. He loved all of his family dearly, especially his little sister, whom he adored.

Blake was preceded in death by his grandparents, Jim Ed Martin and Earl and Betty Paige; and cousin, Tanya Ann Martin.

He is survived by the love of his life, Jessica Slaughter and her daughter, Sadie Slaughter; his parents, Earl Thomas Paige and Jennifer Lea (Martin) Paige; one grandparent, Pat Martin of Rector; one sister, Alexis Paige of Jacksonville, Ala.; aunts and uncles, Jim and Deb Martin of St. Augustine, Fla., Eddie and Jeanette Martin of Greenbriar, Ark., Kandis Martin of Nashville, Tenn., Gaye and Marty Phillips of Jackson, Tenn., Lisa and Barry Henderson of Lilburn, Ga. and Jan Paige of Ashville, N.C., and a host of cousins and friends.

Services will be private under the direction of Irby-Mitchell Funeral Home, of Rector.
