It is with great sadness that the family of Blake Saba Jr. announce his passing on Thursday, August 10th, 2023, in his home in St. Petersburg, FL.
Blake was born on April 11, 1984 in Kingston, Pennsylvania, to Blake William Saba Sr. and the late Barbara "Bonnie" Vivian Saba.
He was a graduate of Dallas High School, Class of 2002, where he excelled in sports including football and basketball. Blake continued his education and in 2005 graduated from LCCC with a degree in Communication Arts & Technology. Along with his family, he was very proud of his work in the counseling and treatment industry where he spent over 10 years providing help to others. He did amazing work in admissions, planning, business development, and case management with Malvern Institute in Malvern, PA as well as Ambrosia Treatment Center in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Many people credit him with assisting them in getting the help they needed...from providing inspiration or performing an act of kindness to completely saving their lives. He never shied away from a challenge and would give everything he had to help someone in need.
Blake was such a charismatic person whose energy resonated with everyone he met. Extremely quick-witted, charming, incredibly funny, naturally athletic, artistic, and fearless, he was an original. Blake was fast with a funny movie quote or a hilarious observation. He was creative and unique with a big heart and people gravitated toward him wherever he went.
He was an avid college and professional sports fan and was no less than a master of movies. He was also moved by music and technology - especially in recent years when he expressed his imagination and creativity in drone video and photography. Blake was truly a remarkable person with broad interests and abilities, commanding laughter in a matter of seconds.
He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, John and Dolores Saba; his maternal grandparents, John and Barbara Vivian, and his mother Bonnie Saba.
Forever lovingly remembered by his father, Blake Saba Sr., his brother Jonathan Saba and his wife Erin, and his beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Blake's effervescent spirit will live on in his family and friends who care deeply for him. The family will have a private celebration of life
