Wade Blakey

Wade Blakey is our serving Ruling Elder with responsibility for Buildings and Grounds. Wade joined First Presbyterian Church of La Grange in February of 2013, participated on the Emmaus Walk 1743 at Cathedral Oaks in March 2014, and was ordained as an Elder in December 2014. He was born and raised in Houston and lived most of his life in the suburban areas of Houston most recently in the Katy area. He and his late wife, Roseann, decided to retire to La Grange purchasing the old (1897) Schumacher house in 2008, fixing it up and relocated to this home in 2010. Following a courageous battle with cancer, Roseann passed in September 2012. Wade subsequently sold the Schumacher house and relocated to the bluff area in 2013. Wade has three sons residing in the Houston and Dallas areas with their families that include his nine grandchildren.

He enjoys serving the church and the wonderful congregation that has become his local family. In addition to his buildings and grounds activities, Wade participates with the Mission committee serving the AMEN food ministry, Second Chance and the Presbyterian Mens Group. He also enjoys playing golf and toying with older classic cars.
