Carl William Blake was born on September 20, 1966, in Columbus, OH to the parents of Anita Nowell and Carl W. Blake Sr.

Carl was known for his nickname “Carbee” to his friends and family.  Carl attended Columbus Public Schools and was a 1981 graduate of Shawnee High School.  Carl was always funny, telling jokes and smiling.  He also enjoyed riding motorcycles and being outdoors. His favorite rapper was Ice Cube because everyone would mention they looked exactly alike.

Carl is preceded in death by his parents, Carl William Blake Sr. and Anita Nowell; sisters, Dorthia Allen and Belinda Blake; and brother, Eric Blake.
