Teathian "Sonny" A. Blake, 80, of Lake Mary, FL, passed away, Friday, August 16, 2019.

Born Wednesday, November 2, 1938 in Smithsburg, MD, he was the son of the late Teathian Adam Blake and the late Mildred (Gish) Blake.

Sonny graduated from Smithsburg High School. He retired from AT T as a District Manager in 1989 after 33 years. Sonny enjoyed owning the Food   Beverage Service at Timacuan Golf and Country Club and was famous for his Sunday Brunch. After retirement, his favorite pastime was golfing, winning several tournaments, traveling to the many national parks and almost every state in the union by driving his 39' motor coach and boating on the St. Johns River in his 35' Sea Ray. He also enjoyed hunting, his lake house in Johnstown, PA and entertaining and cooking for his family and friends. Sonny's greatest joy was his family, godchildren and his wife.

To those that knew him well, Sonny has been described as a "Gruff Marshmallow" or a "Toasty Marshmallow", toasty on the outside and a heart of fluff on the inside.

He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, wife Patricia L. Blake; 4 children; 10 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

Services will be held Tuesday, August 27, 2019, at 10:00 am, at the Douglas A. Fiery Funeral Home, 1331 Eastern Blvd. North, Hagerstown, with the Rev. Jim Johnson officiating.
