Bowling Green, Kentucky

 

Luther “Ed” Edward Blair, 85, of Bowling Green entered his heavenly home on Thursday, May 4, 2023 surrounded by his loving family.

Ed was a son of the late Cecil Grissom and Hazel Wooldridge Blair of Columbia, KY, and preceded in death by his brother, Fred Allen Blair and sister, Ann Blair Ballas.

He is survived by his wife of over 66 years, Vernita Harvey Blair, and their six children—Theresa Blair Davis (Harvey), Carolyn Blair Tarrence (Steve), Lisa Blair-Poe, Edward Alan Blair (Tina), Jimmy Blair, Dawn Blair-Cherry (Lucas)—their 10 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren, his two sisters, Joyce Flatt of Somerset and Billie Stecker (Chuck) of Littleton, Colorado, sister-in-law, Gayle Blair of Columbia  and several nieces and nephews.

Ed loved the Lord, avidly studied His Word, and committed his life to His service.  His passionate singing to the Father above was a beautiful and cherished occasion among his brothers and sisters in Christ.  He served as an Elder, Adult Sunday School Teacher, and Worship Leader at Mt. Olivet Cumberland Presbyterian Church for over 60 years.

Ed was an active and committed member of Gideons International for over 20 years, and a member of the F&AM Masonic Lodge as a mason for 55 years.

Ed was an Accountant by profession, worked at Firestone Textiles, Auburn Hosiery Mills, Combined Insurance and Co-Owner of Premier Graphics.  He studied at Lindsey Wilson College, The University of Akron, and Western Kentucky University to obtain his Bachelor and Masters degrees.
