Blake M. Colbert, 39, of Prospect died unexpectedly at St. Mary’s Hospital on Thursday, March 2, 2023 while surrounded by the love of his family. Blake is the beloved husband of Amanda (Lozinak) Colbert for 11 wonderful years and father to Evelyn and William. Blake was born on October 27, 1983 in Cherry Point, North Carolina. He was the devoted son of Michael and Tonnya (Shafe) Colbert.
Blake graduated from Naugatuck High School in 2002 and attended Pennsicola College before he went on to work for Sikorsky where he was an electrical lead man and a member of the Teamsters 1150. He made many lifelong close friendships among his coworkers. He was a car enthusiast and was well into the project of restoring his 1966 Mustang which he unfortunately did not have the pleasure of seeing through to completion.
Blake was strong and capable yet sensitive and romantic. He made the flower bouquet for Amanda to carry down the aisle at their wedding. His attention to detail and devotion to his bride was evident in each colorful blossom. They were married October 8, 2011 and began their married life in Prospect. Becoming a father was Blake’s greatest joy. Evelyn and William were the light of his life. He was a wonderful and loving father. Husband, father, son, brother, cousin and friend; Blake was devoted to all. He leaves a legacy of honesty, dedication and generosity. His life was much too short but the love he leaves with all those who were blessed to know him will live on forever.
Blake is survived by his loving wife Amanda, his children Evelyn, 9, and William, 6, and his parents Michael and Tonnya Colbert of Naugatuck. He will be missed tremendously by his brother Brandon Colbert of Naugatuck, and sisters Cherell (Christopher) Cobb of SC and Alyssa(Mike) Morrow of Fl.
