With a broken heart I will try to write the obituary of Lank Blair, my dear husband, with the help of the good Lord.
Lank passed away on Friday, September 23, 2005 at the Whitesburg ARH in Whitesburg, Kentucky.
Lank was the son of the late Ben F., Sr. and Belvia Watts Blair. He was born on November 7, 1931, being 73
years, 11 months and 15 days of age at his passing.
Surviving are his wife, Mary Jo Smith Blair, in addition to one brother, Ben F. Blair, Jr. and wife Mattie; two
sisters, Della Blair and Arizona Adams and husband, Evangene; one sister in-law, Hattie Blair, with a host of other
relatives and friends to mourn his passing.
Lank was preceded in death by one brother, Lillie Blair, and one sister, Loretta Adams.
Lank was a member of the Blair Branch Regular Baptist Church. He loved his church and was a faithful member,
attending regularly until he became too ill to attend.
We miss Lank but he is resting in the arms of Jesus. We hope to meet him again when this life is over. We won’t
say good bye because we will see you again someday.
Written by his loving wife, Mary Jo Blair
