Blair served three tours of duty that lasted over 21 years with the United States Navy, first in WWII, then the Korean War, and finally before his honorable discharge, the Vietnam War.
Upon his discharge from the military, he moved his family to Peabody and worked for over 24 years for the City of Peabody School Department as supervisor of maintenance until his retirement.
