Jim Blair

November 12, 2013
I first met Jim riding up in an elevator to his office 20 years ago. He was dressed in a most ridiculous golfing outfit. I made a smart-aleck comment about his attire and we have been friends ever since. Over the years I used Jim's professional services extensively and, more importantly, I came to know and care for his family. His daughter, Haley, spent many years involved with our two daughters and extended family. Jim and the Blair family are wonderful members of our town and their loss is our loss. We will keep him, Amanda, James and Haley in our thoughts. Much love and support, The Stout Family

I was always touched by the way that Jim treated our dad after he bought the Herbert H. Riess Agency. Jim kept a small office for him, sent him a lovely wreath every Christmas and visited him when he was frail and ailing. I'm sorry that Jim has left us so early. The two gentlemen are now together.

We are so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. He was a wonderful friend to our dad, Herbert Riess. We send our deepest sympathy.

Dear Amanda, James, and Haley,

I knew Jim for many years . Our friendship dates back to 1975 when I first moved to this area to take a teaching job at Waterford High School. I was introduced to Jim by a good friend of mine by the name of Bruce Boushee, also from Manchester, CT. The three of us had many years of fun and friendship which I will never forget. Jim's infectious personality, wit and advice always kept us laughing and on our toes. He is now wrapped in the warmth and comfort of an angel's arms. My heart goes out to you and your family at this time of sorrow.

Jim and I would help each other with comparable sales for whatever property either of us were appraising. His email would read "I'm appraising so and so property with a brief description and have no comparable sales. Do you have any for me?" He really was making me feel better by telling me "you think you are appraising a tough property, listen to this one." He would make me, the eternal optimist, feel better about life.
