Johnny Blair Obituary

            Johnny Keith Blair, Keith as he was commonly called, was born February 24, 1961 in Sawmills, NC, to Joe Keith Blair and Edna Mae Stamey Blair.

            Keith went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, January 21, 2023 after a brief but brave fight against cancer.

            Keith was an avid nature lover and the proverbial “beach bum”. He was kind, caring, and always outgoing; he never met a stranger. As much as Keith loved to travel, he also loved being at home with his family including his dog Bugzy.

Keith was preceded in death by his father Joe Blair.

He is survived by his mother, Edna Mae Stamey Blair and siblings. Fighting every step of the way Keith was supported by family. Sonya and David Crouse of Granite Falls and his encouraging brother, Everett and Rebecca Blair of Granite Falls. Sonya was not just his sister but his Irish twin and his second momma.

             Keith was survived and loved by seven nieces and nephews, Emily Pittman, Lacey Lovelace, Mandy Josey, Michael Crouse, Kyle Blair, Taylor Rhoades, and Andrew Lewis. Keith was blessed with a close large extended family and many close friends. Of note, his cousin, Trena and her husband, Jeff Wilson, of Carolina Shores, NC, allowed Keith to enjoy the presence of family even while living in North Myrtle Beach, SC.

            In his last days the resounding sentiment of Keith’s was 2 Timothy 4:7 “I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” We have a great hope in the Lord that this is not “goodbye” but “see you soon.”

            The family will hold a Celebration of Life Service on Sunday, February 5, 2023 from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. at Ebenezer United Methodist Church Life Center, 4948 Burns Road, Granite Falls, NC. Pastor Eric Lane and Retired Pastor Buford Pennell will officiate.
