DAVENPORT, Fla. — Charles “Charlie” Fitzpatrick Blow, 44, passed away suddenly on Sunday, March 20, 2016, in Davenport, Florida.

He was born Dec. 2, 1971, in Sanford, North Carolina, to Robert Blow and Carole Collins. He was a lifelong resident of Maine, and had recently moved to Ormond Beach, Florida, where he lived with Patricia, his wife of 20 years, and their three children.

To spend time with Charlie was to spend time outdoors. Charlie was a dedicated angler, hunter, camper, hiker, four-wheeler enthusiast and, most recently, mountain biker. There were few trails that he did not know or animals that he could not call, either by voice or handtied fly.

Charlie believed that every day told a story, and most days spent with him ended with a telling of these tales by campfire, regardless of season.

As a member of local churches and Eagles clubs, Charlie was always eager to help as many as he could. There were no strangers in Charlie’s life, only those who had helped him or who he could help. His door was always open for family and friends alike, and his “pay it forward” legacy is truly an inspiration for all that know him.

Charles was preceded in death by his father, Robert Blow Sr.

He is survived by: his wife, Patricia Blow; their three children, Guennivere, Duncan and Logan of Ormond Beach, Florida; his mother, Carole Collins of Sanford; five brothers, John Blow and wife Jackie of Sturbridge, Massachusetts, Duncan Blow of Biddeford, Donald Blow and wife Crystal of Biddeford, Gordon Collins of Windham, and Tom Blow and wife Darlene of Shapleigh; three sisters, Fury Collins and fiancé Darren Rogers of Shapleigh, Carole Brocher of Sanford, and Lisa Collins of Saco; two stepbrothers, Robert Blow Jr. and wife Sandy of Old Orchard Beach, and Brian Blow and wife Robin of Clinton; four step-sisters, Sandra Brown of Waterboro, Julie Cronin of Clermont, Florida, Debbie Hersom of Litchfield, and Vivian Burr of Knoxville, Tennessee; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

There will be a graveside service at noon Saturday, April 30, at Highland Grove Cemetery, Town Farm Road, Shapleigh. Following the service, there will be a gathering from 2-5 p.m. at the Eagles Club, 57 Birch Street, Biddeford; food donations are appreciated.

In lieu of flowers, Patricia has asked people to pay forward a generous act or service in Charlie’s memory to those who may need it.
