WWII Veteran Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) Peacefully at home, surrounded by loving family members on Wednesday, March 20, 2002, in his 81st year. He lived up to his regimental motto (PERSEVERANCE) as he fought a long and arduous battle against cancer and lung disease. Beloved son of the late Currie E. Blair and the late Janet McLennan. Survived by his wife in their 50th year of marriage. Lorna E. Presley and six children Gerry (Jean) Ft. St. John BC, Gordon (Pam) Lethbridge, Ken (Deb) Calgary, Andy (Melinda) Maxville, Erin (Nicole) Maxville and Karen (Chester) Ottawa. Beloved grandfather of Charlie Robbie, Catherina and Alexandra. Predeceased by his brother Harold and his sister Hazel. Gerald was immensely proud of having volunteered for active duty and having served with his regiment, the Strathcona's (United Kingdom, Central Mediterranean Area and Continental Europe). He was wounded twice in action and nominated by his Lt. Colonel for a Mention-in-Dispatch award because of his conduct during a certain military action. He was equally proud of his business, Gerald M. Blair Construction, which he operated from 1949 until his passing.
