Blaze was born in Milwaukee on August 26, 1993, son of Bruce Nalezinski and Twila Robertson Nalezinski. He grew up in Port Washington and graduated from Port Washington High School in 2012, where he was a member of the swim team. A month after graduating from high school, Blaze enlisted in the US Navy, serving as a Master-at-Arms (MP) in Bahrain and Greece. He was attached to Security Department Bravo Section “Arwa Plaza One”.
Blaze will forever be remembered as a loving and caring individual. He never was one to shake hands, preferring instead to give big bear hugs. He was a huge jokester, who always had a goofy smile on his face. He was always very generous and loyal to his family and friends. Blaze was very proud of his car, a Dodge Challenger V8. He learned how to drive a manual transmission in his car within a week.

He is further survived by his maternal grandmother Inez Robertson of Sheldon, WI, many aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and many, many friends.
