Blake Lee Carper ’93

October 31, 2017, in London, England, from sudden brain bleed.

Blake was born in Pendleton, Oregon, but considered the town of Joseph—where he was a star athlete in football, wrestling, and soccer—his hometown. His love of sports lasted throughout his life. He majored in philosophy at Reed, where he met the love of his life, Johanna Swanson ’97, whom he married in 1996.

Blake continued his education for many years, ultimately studying and excelling in computers and programming. He was at the height of his career, working for Expedia in London, when he passed away. In addition to Johanna, Blake is survived by his sister Alicia.

Appeared in Reed magazine: September 2018
