Blaž was born on January 24, 1931 in Šibenik, Croatia to Ante and Slavka Bujas. He married Nada Brunac of Brbinj, Dugi Otok, Croatia in 1957. They were married for 63 years.
He immigrated to Canada in 1960 starting out life in the new world in Saskatoon. Nada and Tony joined him in 1961. Sally was born in Saskatoon. The family moved to Vancouver in 1966 and moved into their home in 1967 where he and his wife lived until his dying day.
Blaž was a hard-working man, a welder by trade. He was accomplished at metal craft and often made fence and balcony railings. His hobbies were gardening and wine making. He was a sports fan especially of professional wrestling. He liked to socialize with people and would often break out into song at a party. It was difficult to get him to smile for a photograph but his family has many photos of him wearing a favorite red plaid shirt. He was dedicated to his wife and family. He will be greatly missed and will always be in our hearts.

Have so many wonderful memories of my special god father. I was lucky to have known him my whole life. My memories are of him and my dad sitting around the table in the kitchen talking in Croatian and laughing about life. Then all of a sudden, they would start singing old Croatian songs. Which I believe now they are doing together again. I wish I was closer to give you all hugs but please know that I am thinking of you each and every day. Love you all Nicole, Darren, Josh and Tea.
