Christopher A. Blakey, 54, passed away peacefully at home on January 24th after a courageous battle with cancer. We will miss his great sense of humor and his contagious smile which he carried with him and shared with everyone. Chris graduated from Coronado High School where he was a star middle-linebacker. He went on to earn a Business degree from Arizona State University and was a licensed pilot. As a passionate Sun Devil, he never passed on a chance to tease his Wildcat pals. Chris was a devoted and loving husband and father to his wife Debbie and son Max. He was also a beloved brother to his sisters, Linda and Judie and to his three brothers Tom, Geoff and Pat. Chris also enjoyed the pleasure of six nieces and six nephews. He was preceded by his father Tom and his mother Virginia. A Memorial Mass will be held at 10:00am, on Friday, February 3rd at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 7655 E. Main Street (Miller Road and Main Street), Scottsdale, 85251. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at Chase Bank account #42462115.

Just looking up old friends and came across this. So sorry. !
I came to Arizona at 15 years old and moved in across the street from Watske.
Chris was one of the only guys I met that I did not have to fight to become a friend of his.
I have thought about him often and I will always respect him.
I also have 4 brothers and a sister, none have passed yet, Cant imagine the hart break, and suffering you all have gone through.
Hi to Geoff, and Pat that I know, and God Bless the rest as well.
