Blake Neeley Death, Obituary – Mason Blake Neeley has sadly passed away unexpectedly at the age of 16 on Thursday, December 15, 2022. In the year 2006, on April 25th, Blake and Stacie Neeley welcomed their son Mason into the world in Cincinnati, Ohio. Mason was their first child. Mason spent his infancy in Franklin County, and it was there that he gained a profound reverence for the natural world. Mason’s first trophy animal was a deer, which he shot when he was just six years old.
Mason was a tremendous admirer of football, but in the end, he found out that wrestling was his true passion. He was a tough competitor who immediately excelled in the sport and even went undefeated in all of his matches during his eighth-grade year, proving that he was unbeatable in every single one of them.
As he got older, Mason would get into all sorts of mischief while riding his dirt bike or quad, which included pulling dangerous tricks and generally causing a ruckus. The thing that brought him the most happiness was when he got to spend time with his friends, many of whom he considered to be family. You never knew what kind of music you were going to hear when you were around him because he listened to such a diverse range of genres, from old school hip hop to country music and everything in between.
In spite of the fact that he couldn’t carry a tune to save his life, he loved nothing more than to sing along to all of his favorite songs when he was in the shower. Mason was in possession of a spirit that was infectious to others. People fell in love with him practically as soon as they met him due to his infectious smile and upbeat attitude, which made it impossible to ignore him. His wide smile and positive attitude made him impossible to ignore.
It was a given that you would experience a substantial uptick in your mood if he entered the room while wearing that grin, gave you a bear hug, and then exited the room again. He was the first to offer assistance to anyone who required it, he never talked to anyone he didn’t know, and he was a big brother who kept a watchful eye on his younger brothers. Those who knew Mason, even for a brief period of time, have had a brighter light in their lives extinguished for good.
Mason’s passing is a tragic loss. Even if he was successful in discovering the peace he was looking for, neither of our worlds will ever be the same again without him in it. In addition to his doting parents, Mason is survived by his younger sister Avery, whom he referred to as his “little prodigy,” his maternal grandparents Lambert and Janet Ison, his paternal grandmother Virginia Neeley, as well as a large number of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friend
s. Mason was a talented musician who played the piano, guitar, and drums, and he was a member of the band, “The Masons.” Every single one of these people will miss Mason terribly each and every day of their lives. Mason’s great grandparents Bill and Jean Ison and Carrie (Schalk) Roessler, along with his paternal grandfather Clarence Neeley, have all made their way to the Kingdom of Heaven to be with Mason. Mason’s other paternal grandfather, Clarence Neeley, also made the journey.
