He was preceded in death by his brother, Lloyd Paul Blake and his sister, Venessa Marie Blake. On May 10, 1975, Fred was united in holy matrimony to Desiree' Wallace. From this union of 36 years, they were blessed with one daughter, Nichelle. He was also foster father to numerous teens. Lowell (Fred) attended Eastern United Methodist Church at a young age.
