Blair was always in a great mood. He was a pleasure to work with. I loved his joking and picking on me. He worked night and day and always with a grin. He taught me how to do tissue and bones. We will surely miss him at LifeLink for he was our team leader and friend.

Our Dear Blair WYNN Haynes,
You've lived such a difficult life from your 1st cancer surgery when you were just a child, to the challenges you've faced as an adult. We've sent so many prayers to you and you managed somehow, to survive so much. We think you were finally worn out from the struggle. It was so good seeing you and spending time with you when your Mum died this past year. I think she must have needed you with her. Anyway, know you'll always be in our hearts with lots of Love, Rest in Peace, our Dear Skip!! XOXOXOXOOX

I am Cheryl's cousin from Pittsburgh. I remember when I was very small seeing Santa in my Aunt Carol's house and when I got close I whispered to Santa "Blair is that you"? He whispered to me yes and explained to me that I couldn't tell anyone else. I remember thinking he was very awesome for doing that. We haven't been in touch much over the years but I have always thought very fondly of Blair and I am very sorry to all my cousins in Florida for your loss because I know it is tremendous. Blair was a wonderful man. He will be missed!

Most people are gonna remember my dad because he made us laugh. He always had away about him that made you smile anytime he walked into a room. But he was so much more than that. He was kind, generous, strong, and full of spirit. He always put his wife, kids, and grand kids first before himself. He stayed with us much longer than we expected, yet some how it seems like he was taken away too soon. He was our Superman, our rock, he was our hero. I learned so much from him and im positive he’ll continue to teach me, even after he’s gone. I love you so very much Dad and I’m going to miss you forever.

Skip was a great brother, will miss him deeply. I always enjoyed shooting over to see him on my trips south. There is a huge hole that can’t be filled.
My best to Cherie and the kids, will see you soon

To the whole Blair family I send my deepest sympathy. Skip had a huge heart and he used it wisely. Just look at the legacy he has left along with the family memories for all to enjoy. His laugh carries on for the heavens are even more cheerful with his presence. I pray for all whom are effected. Be strong for one another. His legacy sure is.

Skip was a gift from God and I do believe God made a desperate attempt to get him back many times.
Skip did everything in his power to be with his family as long as he could....and now we are all left with wonderful memories and funny stories to tell about a remarkable man and the life he lived.
My heart is broken as I’ve lost a wonderful brother and friend.
Rest peacefully, Skip, I love you

When I was hospitalized in 1973 for my 1st aneurysm, Skippy noticed my iv was not functioning properly; he called it to the attention of the nurses. From that day on, I called him "My Hero!" He could love, laugh, and hug harder than most anyone I know!! The Heavens are richer. My love for you and memories of you are priceless!!
