Blaine Anthony Maez left us unexpectedly to return to his Father in Heaven on September 7, 2023. He passed away at McKay Dee Hospital in Ogden from heart failure.
He was born in Provo, Utah on September 14, 1967. Blaine was the oldest child of Ramon Antonio “Tony” Maez and Shirley Lee Broadhead Maez.
He was exceptionally bright, and knowledgeable. He could figure out almost anything.
Blaine graduated from Pleasant Grove High School where he was one of their top runners in both cross country and track.
After serving an LDS Mission in Manila, Philippines, he continued his education receiving his Master of Science Degree in Quality Assurance.
He married Marissa Malit in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on June 9, 1989. This union was blessed with three beautiful daughters.
Blaine loved his family. He was a wonderful son and a good example for his siblings. He was a caring husband, father, and grandfather. He was the rock in our family. He was a dedicated friend.
Blaine always enjoyed reading, especially about the history of our nation. He felt a profound allegiance to his country and served in the United States Air Force.
He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and found joy as he served in many different positions within the church.
His faith was strong, and he loved his Savior, Jesus Christ and his fellowmen. He demonstrated this love in his everyday actions.
Blaine enjoyed working at Petersen Incorporated and he knew enough about all areas of the work to help make it successful. He was an honest and hard-working man who set high standards for himself at work. Whatever he was involved in he gave it his best.
He was a BYU and LA Dodger’s fan.
Blaine enjoyed camping, Dutch oven cooking, hiking, target shooting, kayaking, fishing, hunting turkeys, and gardening. But his real passion was cars. If something could get Blaine’s adrenaline pumping it was fast sports cars. Owning a Porsche was a childhood dream that he accomplished.
Blaine is survived by his wife, Marissa of Farr West, Utah; three daughters, Jessica (Shane) Adams of Harrisville, Utah, Stephanie (Jared) Windsor of North Ogden, Utah and Rachel (Noah) Fogarty of North Ogden, Utah; two granddaughters, Chantelle and Cambrie Adams of Harrisville, Utah; his parents, Ramon Antonio “Tony” Maez and Shirley Lee Broadhead Maez of Sunset, Utah; his siblings, Malorie (John) Schneider of Bavaria, Germany, Melissa (Cary) Thayne of Darby, Montana, Jared (Danielle) Maez of Layton, Utah, Trent (LeAdelle) Maez of Tooele, Utah, Shanielle (Bryce) McMurray of North Ogden, Utah, and Isaac (Jacque) Maez of Greeley, Colorado. Preceded in death by a brother, Brandon Maez.
Blaine lived every aspect of his life to the fullest.
To quote Janice Kapp Perry: “Well done thou good and faithful servant. You have earned the Savior’s gentle praise, "Well done”.
