Obituary of Blake H. Kasch

Blake H. Kasch August 12, 1933 – April 29, 2021 Monroe, NY Blake Kasch a lifelong resident of Monroe, NY, passed away on Thursday, April 29th at home. Blake is the son of the late Fred and Carrie Rake Kasch, he was born August 12, 1933 in Goshen, NY. Blake proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. After his honorable discharge he went to work for the A&P Tea Company for 45 years. In 1996, he retired, and had spent his last 16 years in the Allendale, NJ store, and prior to that he worked in the Chester, Haverstraw and Monroe, NY locations. Upon Blake's retirement you would often see him and his sister Lily around town delivering Meals on Wheels and helping those less fortunate. Blake was a huge supporter to the Monroe Free Library, he would take out 10-20 books weekly, as he loved reading. These past two years, Lynn Pace from the library was an amazing friend and helped get him his books. Blake is survived by his son Todd, wife Kim and their daughter Madison, who was truly Blakes everything. He was beyond proud of the beautiful young lady she turned in to, with the sweetest soul, she would deliver him breakfasts when she was home from college, and he lived for those moments when she would walk through the front door. There were two young men Dylan & Tyler Barone who Blake treated as his grandsons. He enjoyed watching them grow alongside Madison from the day they were all born. He adored Brooke & Emily Sarnecky and is forever grateful for the Barone and Sarnecky families for always making him feel a part of their family. The family would like to acknowledge and thank three very special women in his life, Michelle Nikoforov, Pam Merimsky and Ann O'Rourke who he loved dearly as they were a part of his extended family. We cannot forget Blakes rescue cat, Lucky who survives him. Blake's loving wife, Nancy of 58 years predeceased him in 2019. They married on February 18, 1961. There wasn't a day that went by since her passing, that he didn't speak of her and wish she were here. He was also predeceased by his parents, his sister Lily Kasch, brother Fred Kasch, and a granddaughter Alexus Kasch. As well as his best friends and neighbors in life; Peg and Frank Griffin from Monroe. Graveside Services for family and friends will be officiated by Rev.
