Bob Blair

In Memory of Bob Blair

April 3, 1935 – February 23, 2019

Through his many years of volunteer work as Chair of the annual Jingle Bell Run, Walk and Wheel, hosted by Ken Knapp Ford in support of Community Living Essex County, Bob Blair has left a lasting legacy with all who had the pleasure of knowing and working with him.

Bob’s zest for life, dedication to friends, family and those he cared so deeply for at Community Living Essex County will continue to live on. We will always remember Bob and as each walker, runner and wheeler is welcomed across the finish line each year at the Jingle Bell Run with a high five, Bob’s spirit will live on.
