ROBERT BLAIR “Robbie”, “Rob”

July 28, 1988 – June 26, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of ROBERT BLAIR on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at the age of 30 years.

Rob was a wonderful son to Gordon & Pamela Blair and brother to Charlie. He will be greatly missed by his aunts, uncles, cousins, two grandmas – who knew his favourite treats – and many friends made along the journey.

He will be remembered by many for his sparkling eyes, easy demeanour and smile, laughter and giggles, and always kindness.

Rob loved to travel; he visited Ontario over many summers to spend time with relatives and later studied and traveled in Europe.

He was a graduate of Agnes Davidson, Gilbert Patterson, LCI and the University of Lethbridge (Math). Rob, in his last few years, struggled with his mental illness, which eventually led to his passing. He needs to be remembered not for this, but for the happy-go-lucky fellow that he was.

A Celebration of Rob’s Life will be held at McKILLOP UNITED CHURCH, 2329 – 15 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB, on Friday, July 12, 2019 at 11:00 A.M. with Reverend Terry Shillington officiating.

In lieu of flowers etc., any donations to the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta would be gratefully appreciated, so that others may be helped.
