William Blair, 82, passed away in Louisville, KY, and went to be with his Lord on February 6th, 2013. For over five years, Bill courageously battled PSP, (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy) a progressive form of Parkinson's disease. He is now reunited with the love of his life, Jean Lucille Hunt and loving family members and friends.
Bill was born in Homer, NY, to Ruth Cynthia Belden and Dawson Blair McClurg (and was the stepson of Kenneth B. Anderson). Bill graduated from Alfred University with a BS Degree in Glass Technology. He served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy on the USS Harkness and was a Diving Officer in Indian Head, MD. Formerly of Corning/Painted Post, NY, he retired to Venice, FL, after 35 years of service with Corning Glass Works, including three years as plant manager at Corhart Refractories in Louisville, KY.
Always on the go, he loved traveling and spending time with family. He enjoyed golfing, fishing, hunting and camping as well as playing Bridge and Euchre. He was an Eagle Scout and an avid UK fan. The family is especially grateful to the many caregivers at The Forum at Brookside for their genuine love and care. Per Bill's wishes, his brain was donated for research to the CurePSP Brain Bank at the Mayo Clinic to help find a cure.
Bill is survived by his brother, Bob McClurg of Apopka, Florida; daughters Tricia (Irv) Hurst and Pam Richardson of Louisville, KY, Cindy (Peter) Havlik of Tulsa, OK and Blair (Doug) Belsheim of Canyon Country, CA; nine grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
A family graveside service will take place this summer in Venice, Florida. Ratterman's, 12900 Shelbyville Road, East Louisville was entrusted with arrangements.
