Our “Baby Handsome” son, brother, uncle, and friend was unexpectedly taken from us on September 26, 2013. Blaze had a quick, contagious smile and was very affectionate to all his family and friends. He was outspoken, but kind; you always knew where you stood with him. His strong will and generosity showed in his willingness to help others. He was a giver who brought happiness to those around him by uplifting spirits with his quick wit and that smile that came so easily. His determination was evident in his driven success in all that he attempted. He was an avid outdoorsman, hunting and fishing were his passion.
Blaze was born August 22, 1988, to Robert Nunez and Helen Montano in Roswell, NM. He was a Roswell High School Graduate, where he participated in football and wrestling. Wrestling was his passion. He worked at Bob Reed Pest Control for six years. He currently worked at Casa Querencia and was attending ENMU-R studying Criminal Justice.
