Play Tribute Movie

Glenn Blair, age 78 went to be with his loving Father & Savior after a long battle with Alzheimers. He retired from Delta Airlines in Atlanta as a Customer Service Supervisor. After retirement he worked at Home Depot, where as God would have it, he met his wife, Carol. Glenn served in the Air Force. Glenn was a kind, gentle & sincere man who gave his life to Jesus later in life. He loved his dogs Jenny & Abby who provided a respite from the Alzheimers and loved him unconditionally. Glenn had a green thumb and liked to play in the dirt. There was never a weed or leaf in the yard when he was around. He was a skilled craftsman who could build or repair almost anything. He even built Carol a "she shed". He enjoyed playing golf with the fellas from Sevier Heights Baptist Church and the guys in his family. Glenn has many faithful & extraordinary friends who have given support in countless ways. To each of you we remember each kind deed, gesture and word of encouragement. The ladies in Carol's Thursday Morning Bible Study at SHBC are prayer warriors who have over the years lifted Glenn & Carol to the Father. Mary Lue Barefoot and Jessie Newman, special friends to both Glenn & Carol, along with Dean Owens, a very special brother, has been with them to walk this journey and hold them up when they couldn't do it themselves. God has used each one of these mentioned & many others to do His work. Very special thanks to Dr. Andy Adams & Montry with Summit Medical for their loving care. We want to thank Amedisys Hospice & The Pointe at Lifespring for their support. Glenn was preceded in death by his late wife, Edie and son, Brent; brothers, Lemuel & Ben Blair. He is survived by his wife, Carol; son, Bryan (Alisa) & grandson, Harrison Blair; sisters, Lela Haire & Evelyn Blackwood.

So sorry about the passing of Glenn. He was the Supervisor on the F-Concourse gates when I first met him in the early 70’s. He was a good man and was well liked and respected.
RIP my friend.

Carol’s lovely and heartfelt words in Glenn’s obituary helped to complete what we knew of Glenn. Unlike most of the tributes, we met him and Carol in his decline from Alzheimer’s at a care center where our mother resided. Our friendship began as friendly greetings and evolved into sharing a table at special dinners. We knew them as a couple. Glenn was always wearing a smile when Carol was with him. She was his angel. He didn’t say much, but he didn’t need to. One could tell that he was a gentle man and a gentleman, even when his illness robbed him of so much. On behalf of my family—John, Tom, Dick, and Mo—we wish Glenn and Carol peace and blessings in their new lives.

As I dug into my memory bank and found Glenn Blair, I found words like "pleasant", "quiet", and "efficient".......Then, as his image registered in my mind, I started to remember why. Our total relationship was conducted at the Atlanta Airport, where we worked closely for a number of years....He was, as the saying goes, "one of the good ones"......I wish him Godspeed, fair winds, and following seas in his new dimension with Our Savior.

Glen, I will always remember you as one of my best friends during our careers with Delta. We shared many likes in life in landscaping and socially after work. Memories of you will always be there whenever entering Home Depot Flowers & Plants Department and Atlanta Braves Spring Training Games in Florida which we enjoyed
attending with members of our Delta teams. R.I.P friend.
