The family of Blake of Wiikwemkoong is saddened to announce his passing on Tuesday, July 12th, 2022 at the age of 41 years.

Blake will be dearly missed by his son Dominic Jeremiah Bell, who he lovingly referred to as 'The Dominator'.

Blake will be lovingly remembered  by his partner Darlene Osawamick.

He will be dearly missed and lovingly cherished by his family;
especially his mother Joanne Ominika-Abel,
his stepfather Lawrence Shawangonabe, who he fondly called 'Pops',
his father Richard Shawana
and his siblings Dawn (Peach), Kristine (Stephen), Amie, Joe (Seraphine), Zack (Justine), Wusto and Wiidasseh
and his fur brother Carlos.

Predeceased by his maternal grandparents Agillius and Julie Ominika (nee Trudeau),
paternal grandparents Rebecca and Nelson Shawana
and his godmother Bertha Trudeau.  

Blake will be lovingly remembered and missed by his great aunt Marjorie Trudeau, also Vera, Ursula and Rita.
His aunties Mary Lynn, Cathy, Glenda, Joanna, Janet, Rose, Veronica, Regina, Kimberly, Loretta, Crystal and Amanda; his uncles Sonny, Nicky, Howard, George, Peter, and Paul
as well as his many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

He will be dearly missed by his godfather Donald Trudeau,
his godchildren Ashtin Ominika, Delani Trudeau
and Kai-Phoenix Ominika-Turner,
his special cousins Dana and Ruby
and his bestest of buddies Johnny 'Miikanote' and Matthew 'Smelly Cat'.

Blake was a sweetheart, he was a kind, gentle, loyal, humble and sensitive man. His smile would light up any room he entered. He excelled in volleyball, basketball and baseball. He loved his scratch tickets, lotto and poker. His favourite pastime was to play cards and dice for hours with his family and friends. To all little ones, he was Uncle Bear and they all loved to hang out and visit with him. His laugh was so infectious, so much so, that he loved 
laughing at his own cheesy jokes.
He was always giving his mom a helping hand, whether it was mowing the lawn, playing cards, scrabble, or having morning coffee, Mom and Pops knew they could always count on him. No matter who needed help he would be there for them. He was a fighter and had a strong determination and dedication that when he set out on a goal, he would do it, he knew he wanted to finish high school and was 
so proud of himself when he got his GED. 
Blake loved giving the longest biggest bear hugs and never forgot to say I love you!  We love you too Blake!
