Malcolm Samuel Blair, lived from November 14, 1926 - March 31, 2016 until 89 years of age. Malcolm grew up living on a farm in Michigan and had six siblings; three brothers and three sisters. Growing up after the Depression was hard so Malcolm helped care for his family's needs at a very young age. This instilled a good work ethic in Malcolm which was handed down to his children.\n\nMalcolm loved his family dearly, especially his wife, Rose. He would express his love in growing gardens with beautiful and bountiful produce. He also had a passion for farming and attending auctions. Though his life seemed to be surrounded with practicalities, Malcolm would destress by playing games of all sorts with his family. Favorites among these include: Risk, Civil War, Euchre, Rook (high-man), and Pit. Sometimes he would play these games through wee hours due to enjoying the time and fun with his family. Malcolm also had a lot of pleasure during the holidays; especially during Christmas. He enjoyed shopping and making gifts and treats (fudge and crackerjack balls) for his family and especially for Rose. Wrapping these gifts and treats were done with precision and artistic flavor. It was with pride and joy for Malcolm, for he had to have the edges crisp and even and the patterns of the chosen, beautiful wrapping paper matching with the folds.\n\nMalcolm was always involved with family projects that would include not only his own family but the families of his twin sister, Marjorie, and his sister Lorraine and their families. This included the purchase of an Army barracks which was torn down to add on to Marjorie's home as well as his own. He also helped renovate Lorraine and her husband's huge farmhouse in the mid-West. He was also a sexton, and involved his family in the business, as well as working at Eaton's Manufacturing Company making auto and aerospace parts. He also donated his time with the LDS Church with taking care of the grounds each week with his children. This was common practice. He started his own landscaping business in Michigan when his children were old enough to participate, and continued that business working for Foothill Enterprise with his children and grandchildren and his sister Marjorie's son, Alan Cortright.\n\nDuring Malcolm's Winter years he still possessed vitality and energy that even a teenager would envy. He constantly kept himself busy and even devoted time as a greeter at Walmart for over ten years. The word "retirement" never was a factor. Besides working at Walmart he was still growing his gardens and playing games with the involvement of Rose, his children and grandchildren. Malcolm also had a love for music, specifically Bluegrass and Classic Country. He loved the works of Hank Williams, Scruggs and Flatts, Boxcar Willy, Ricky Skaggs, Kitty Wells to name a few. He would listen to the music with his hands folded under his chin, a smile on his face, eyes closed and toes tapping. This man is dearly missed by the legacy of family and friends he's left behind to go on to his next journey.\n\nMalcolm is survived by his wife Rose Marie Blair and his children: Gerald Malcolm Blair (Vivian Blair), Louis Lynn Blair, Steven Carl Blair (Debbie Blair), Corrine Marie Miller (David Miller), and Mark Jeffrey Blair, his sister Lorraine Teachout and his beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, Francis and Gladys Blair, his brothers Robert, Richard and George Blair, his sisters Marion Adler and his twin Marjorie Cortright.\n\nMemorial Services will be privately held for Malcolm Blair at a later date for family and close friends.
