Blake Bohnsack, 7 mo.

Blake Reuben Bohnsack, age 7 months, of Dassel, passed away in his sleep Saturday, March 19, 2016.

He was born July 27, 2015, to Andy and Annette (Olson) Bohnsack. Blake was baptized Nov. 29, 2015 at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Cokato.

Blake was his daddy’s pride, his momma’s joy, and his big sister’s best friend. His big bright smile, two little teeth, and giggles will be remembered by all who knew him.

Blake had just learned to sit and crawl. He loved to chew on toys and make his wheelie chair go REALLY fast. He learned patience and resilience from his aggressively affectionate big sister, Betty.

Blake beamed with happiness when his momma would wake him up in the morning, singing songs and saying prayers; he would peacefully fall asleep in his daddy’s arms. He loved to be held, and his loved ones are comforted knowing he is forever in Jesus’ arms. He left us too soon, but we can rejoice in knowing that we will see him again.

Blake was preceded in death by his great-grandma, Ellen; great-grandpa Reuben; great-grandpa Conrad; and great-grandpa LeRoy.

He is survived by his parents; big sister Betty; grandparents Bruce and Susan Bohnsack, and Randy and SuAnn Olson; great-grandparents Selma Bohnsack, Donna Sellman, Don and Laverne Olson, and Harriet Johnson; aunts and uncles Ben (Jennifer) Bohnsack, Jenny (Ryan) Olson, Jake (Bobbi) Bohnsack, Chris (Beky) Olson, and Matthew (Sherlynn) Olson; and cousins Bridget, Heidi, Megan, Isabella, Gracie, Elena, Lydia, and Benjamin.

The funeral service took place Wednesday, March 23, at 1 p.m. at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Cokato.

Visitation was Tuesday, March 22 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the church, with 8 p.m. prayer; and continued Wednesday, one hour prior to the service.

Arrangements were by Swanson-Peterson Funeral Home, www.swansonpeterson.com.
