Blake Marshall Wilcox, 30


Blake Marshall Wilcox, age 30 of Blair, passed away on August 4, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. Funeral services will be held Saturday, August 7, at Reach Church (formerly Country Bible) at 10:30 a.m. Visitation will be held Friday, August 6, at Campbell Aman Funeral Home beginning at 3:00 p.m. with family receiving friends from 5 to 8 p.m.

Blake was born on February 1, 1991, the son of Kent and Rita Wilcox. Blake was always a very bright and gifted student. His crowning academic achievement was receiving his bachelors degree in Biology from the University of Nebraska at Omaha after years of hard work. Even after graduating, Blake continued to learn and grow any way he could. 

As a diehard Nebraska football fan, Blake's passion for his beloved Huskers was unrivaled. His normally calm, kind demeanor always gave way to his competitive, fiery and fun spirit on Saturdays each fall.

Blake's work ethic and passion for performing his job duties as assistant manager at Napa Auto Parts were always qualities to be admired. He was truly dedicated to helping every individual who walked through those doors, no matter what was needed. A model employee, Blake has and always will be a valued and irreplaceable member of the Napa family. 

Blake and his wife, Amber, always looked forward to their Tuesday night adventures with their close friends. Blake made many wonderful memories with his friends watching movies, rocking out at concerts and cheering at sporting events. Spending time with his beloved family and pets were two of Blake's absolute favorite things in the world. Blake was always guaranteed to have his best friend by his side anytime he was with Amber. No matter what they were doing, as long as Blake and Amber were together, there was always fun to be had and genuine, true love to be shared. 

Blake is survived by his wife, Amber; mother, Rita; sister Karley (Jake), and his grandfather, Kenny Truhlsen.

He was preceded in death by his father, Kent; grandparents; Norma Truhlsen, Harley "Lyle" Wilcox, and Elsie Wilcox.

Memorials can be directed to the family for later designation.
