Blake Broadhurst, 21, Orwigsburg, PA, entered the gates of eternity to his Heavenly Father after a very short but valiant bout with Burkitt’s Lymphoma on Monday, July 16, 2018 at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Blake will be remembered for his love for Jesus and care for others, his kindness and generous heart, his bigger than life antics, his comical facial expressions, his bravery and courage during life’s adversities, his laughter and corky jokes, his love of family and friends, his one liners and movie quotes, his love of Taco Bell and anything spicy, his tall tales through exaggerations, his nicknames he gave to others, and so much more. Blake was well loved by all who knew him and he will be remembered.
In addition to his parents, Preston and Karen Broadhurst, Blake is survived by his older brother Cameron Broadhurst and his wife Natalie of New Ringgold, PA, younger siblings Allison, Raya, Myles, Talia Broadhurst and a foster sister, all at home. Also survived by his grandparents Wayne and Dianne Broadhurst of Detour, MD, Ronald and Meredith Hill of Pine Grove, PA, his birth parents Travis and Tracey of Fleetwood, PA and several aunts, uncles, cousins, and a great-grandmother, all whom loved him dearly. He was preceded in death by his Aunt Leah Hill of Pine Grove, PA and infant cousin Graydon Broadhurst of Woodsboro, Maryland.
He was an employee at the Turkey Hill in Blandon, PA. He loved his job, his co-workers and was looking forward to continuing with the business.
Celebration of Blake’s life will take place on Saturday, July 21 at 11:00 a.m. at Kimmels Church, 179 Pine Creek Dr., Orwigsburg, PA with Jonathan Hikes officiating. The celebration will be followed by a potluck picnic. Please join us in remembering Blake by making donations, in lieu of flowers, to Kimmels Church earmarked Operation Christmas Child.
