Charles “Chuck” Albert Blair Jr., age 79, of Manchester, Tennessee, passed away following a long-term illness, on Wednesday, April 6, 2022, at Unity Medical Center.
Born in Portland, Oregon, on January 21, 1943, to the late Charles and Emily Blair, Sr., Chuck devoted his life to being a loving son, husband, father and grandfather. A United States Army Veteran and retired computer programmer, Chuck always prioritized spending time with his children and grandchildren first. He loved visiting Yosemite National Park and took his family there on annual vacations. He also enjoyed traveling to Hawaii, where he and his wife Judith, loved the Hawaiian culture. Chuck loved landscape and family photography and introduced it to his children at an early age. Described as very generous and having a big heart, Chuck and his family had a history of giving to the homeless, taking in a variety of families, to live in their own home, on many occasions. He was deeply devoted to the Christian faith, previously being a member of Calvary Chapel Church in Moreno Valley, California and currently a member of The Church on the Way of Van Nuys, California. When Chuck fell too ill to attend services, he faithfully watched the weekly services online. Chuck will be missed dearly by his loving family and friends.
Survivors include his wife of fifty-two years, Judith Gifford- Blair; three sons and their wives, Jim & Jaclyn Blair, Jeff and Laura Blair and Tim & Cat Blair; and eight beloved grandchildren, Jenna, Samantha, Bryan, Kellie, Alana, Taylor, Sawyer and Dylan.
