His Life

His life in Melbourne, Florida

Gary Blair moved to Melbourne, Florida only a few years ago. He has been a family friend to my family since the day he moved into the house across the street from ours. He would always find ways to make us all laugh and make us feel happy. Gary always came over for Thanksgiving, Christmas and every other holiday there was. There was a time where I was younger and a lot of his fish died and I got to help him get all the dead fish out of his pond (Yes I thought it was gross at the time, but now I see as a memory with him). He was diagnosed with lung cancer a few years ago and it did go away for a while, but then when it returned... he was told it was terminal. He lived out the final months of his life in Melbourne, Florida at the care of his Sister, and his neighbors around him.

Gary passed away on Nov 26th, 2011 at a Tampa hospital for cancer patients. He died in his sleep early that morning.

He will be missed!
