It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Blair Houdayer. Blair passed away on the morning of December the 9th after a courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by his sister Yvette Bird and her husband David and their children Eric, Matthew (Julian and James) and Nathan/Carly (Jonathan and Elias), as well as his brother Barry and his children Daniel, Sarah and Rachel.
Blair was born in Nakusp, B.C. and is predeceased by his parents, Sally & Rene Houdayer and his older brother David.
He began his career at Overwaitea in Nakusp and worked proudly as a produce manager for 35 years.
Blair had many passions in life. He could be fishing for salmon off the shores of Vancouver Island or hunting in the mountains of B.C. or Alberta but he never missed a friend’s birthday. He was often the first to remember. Life for Blair was about living in the moment and living out his passions. His wisdom, laugh, smile, and of course, his warm hugs will be greatly missed. There was no one quite like him. He touched so many lives.
Blair wanted his friends together for his birthday. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, January 24th, 2015 in Duncan at Mellor Hall (7380 Trans Canada Highway) from 1:00-5:00pm.
Another celebration of life will be held in his hometown of Nakusp on Saturday April 11, 2015.
