Obituary for Clifford LeRoy Blair

Clifford LeRoy Blair, 89, passed away May 21, 2019 at CMMC in Lewistown with his family by his side.  

Cliff and his twin sister, Carolyn, were the first twins born in the old Havre Hospital on December 1, 1929 to Jesse and Ada Flo (Henry) Blair.  He attended Eagle Creek Country School through the eighth grade and then boarded out for part of high school with his Aunt Dorothy.  He graduated from Chester High School in 1947.  

Except for a stint in the U.S. Air Force as a helicopter mechanic in San Marcos, Texas, Cliff lived and worked on the family farm/ranch helping raise sheep and Angus cattle - plus farming and raising hay.  

Cliff met Nell Newman in San Marcos and they were married in Dilley, Texas on August 6, 1955.  The Blair family lived north of Lothair until 1980 when they moved to the Hobson area to farm.  Later, he drove truck hauling grain until retiring in 2010.  Cliff enjoyed skiing, camping, and playing cards.  He won the last game of cribbage he played three days before he passed.  

Cliff is survived by his wife, Nell; son, Jerry (Tamie) Blair; daughter, Kelly (Jerry) Byington; son, Michael (Jill) Blair; and son, Frank Blair; grandsons, Jesse Blair, Kendall Blair, and Tyler (Emma) Blair; brother, Floyd Blair; and several nieces and nephews.  

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, May 26, 2019, 1:00 p.m. at the United Methodist Church in Hobson.  A gathering at the Hobson Senior Center will follow for a light luncheon.  Cliff’s ashes will be scattered at a later date.  Memorial donations can be made to the Hobson United Methodist Church or a charity of your choice.
