James Frederick Blake

December 23, 1964 — August 12, 2021

Use this link to attend service after 2:45 PM on Thursday It is with sadness that we share the sudden death of James Frederick Blake. Jimmie was a loved son, brother and friend. James F. Blake, 56, of Fort Lauderdale, born December 23, 1964, passed away August 12, 2021. Affectionately known to his family and friends as Jimmie, Helmet, Styrofoam Jim, Dancing Jim, and The Mayor. Survived by his mother, Alma Blake, father Fred Blake (Maria), sister Barbie Boy (Chris) and countless family, friends and friends that were like family. Born and raised in Plantation, Florida, Jimmie graduated from Plantation High School, class of 1983. His first car was a 1976 International Scout and he drove trucks from that day on. Growing up, he developed a passion for racing, BMX bikes as a youth, which led to a hobby of car racing. He had a stubborn streak but he was the sensitive, caring guy that you could always count on and would do anything to help others. He made friends wherever he went and he always knew someone he called a friend when he walked into a room. He was an avid supporter of the local music scene, especially Mr. Nice Guy and Southern Blood. He was truly the life of the party. The family will hold a private service. A celebration of his life including music and styrofoam cups will be held when the time is appropriate. The family asks that you honor his spirit and do something that Jimmie loved: take a bike ride, watch a car race, hang out with your friends and family, have a beer in a styrofoam cup with ice, dance the night away, pick up the phone and call someone you love, or pay it forward and help out a friend or family member in need.
