Billie Bill Lee Blair, Ol Bill, was called home to be with the Lord on August 31,2016.
Bill will be remembered by all for his social nature. Bill never met a stranger and conversation was his best attribute. No matter where he went, conversation was soon to follow. Bills memories will be kept by his family and friends for his fondness of fishing, hunting and testing firearms. Bill would exhibit the art of firearms to anyone interested, in only the colorful manner of Bill Blair. Bills love for his family was evident in his everyday life. Bill would take the time to sit and reminisce with his family. His stories and adventures will be treasured and repeated for years, to include Big Bad Bills life quotes and infamous sayings.
