He was a volunteer firefighter for over 30 years. Served his community as a Lion, receiving his 40-year membership. For 20 years, from 1990, he was responsible for the Claremont Union Cemetery, the last 10 years he managed the cemetery, resigning December 31, 2020. He was a member of the Brougham Masonic Lodge. Blair had many occupation jobs, from carpenter, contractor, owner operator of a gravel truck, to Board of Education maintenance.

Some of his last words were “I love my family.”
