William Eldon "Baja" Blair

On May 10, 2004, at Plainview Cemetery, my family laid to rest the mortal body of my eternal companion, William Eldon Blair. William was better known as Baja or Billy; he was 31 years of age when he was called home to help serve our Heavenly Father.

Baja was accidentally electrocuted on May 5, 2004. He was self-employed at the time of his death. Baja was born on Sept. 12, 1972, in Prescott, Ariz. He graduated from Big Piney High School in 1991.

In April of 1993 he married me, his wife Amy Lea (Brost) Blair. During our marriage we lived in several places, finally settling in Marbleton a few years ago. Bill has given me four very beautiful children: Jacob William Blair, born Dec. 15, 1993; Witni Robin Ione Blair, born Sept, 12, 1993; Devon Eldon Blair, born Dec. 18, 1998; Natalya Ireland Blair, born July 2, 2001. On Oct. 13, 2001, Bill took us, his family, to the Billings Montana Temple and helped make us an Eternal Family, which this union will never be broken.

William enjoyed anything to do with the outside and working with his hands. He was looking forward to the camping season and all the firewood that we would have been getting. He gave all that he had to his family and more. I know that he loved us more than words can ever say.

William has joined his paternal grandparents in heaven. He will be preparing the way for Amy, his eternal companion; his eternal children Jacob, Witni, Deven and Natalya; his father, John Blair (Pee-Wee); his brother, Timothy Blair; and many members of his extended family.

William will be greatly missed but always loved and we know that we will be reunited with him in the hereafter. I love you honey, eternally yours, Amy.
