1952 - 2016 Kenneth Lynn Blair, 64, of Kirbyville, Texas passed away November 1, 2016, at his residence. Funeral services will be held at 3:00 p.m. Thursday, November 3rd, at Kirbyville Church of Christ, with visitation at the church from 1:00-3:00p.m Additional services will be held at Southside Church of Christ in Lubbock, TX Saturday, November 5th, at 3:00 p.m. with visitation at the church from 1:00-3:00p.m. Burial will be at City of Lubbock Cemetery. Lynn has made a difference in the lives of so many. Ever passionate about spreading the Gospel, he preached and taught Bible classes in several countries across three continents. He loved preaching and deeply valued the relationships he developed in the almost forty-five years he preached. Lynn loved to have fun with friends and family. He enjoyed good bluegrass music and Texas high school football. In years past, he had been known to entertain friends with close-up magic tricks. And he loved playing 42. He enjoyed watching and learning about birds. In fact, he enjoyed learning about a variety of subjects: agriculture, history, true crime, the stock market. He knew something about so many subjects! Lynn could actually recite all the presidents of the US in order and tell you a fact about each one. Lynn was a fan of his second amendment rights and loved collecting firearms and reloading ammunition. He was musically talented, and those who worshiped with him in song knew well the sound of his loud, baritone voice. Lynn was a loving husband and father. His wife was never far from his mind. In his last week of life, he proudly introduced her to hospital staff as his bride of forty-six years. When he traveled without her, he would be watchful for a gift he could bring home to her. He was so proud of his children and loved them deeply. There was nothing he wouldn't have done to help them or bring them joy. In his final days he expressed his wish that he could protect them from the pain of losing him. He delighted in his grandchildren and was always eager to make and build upon connections with them. He was always quick with a word of practical advice. Those who knew him well heard him advise repeatedly Pace yourself or It's your friends who will get you in trouble. When his children lived at home and were about to leave the house to socialize, Lynn was fond of reminding them to remember Whose son/daughter you are. And they all understood both the text and subtext of that reminder: behave in such a way as to please your earthly parents and your heavenly Father. And it is that Heavenly Father who divinely guided Lynn's thinking and living. Now his loved ones can rest assured that Lynn has gone to his true home. Lynn is survived by his wife, Janis Cookie Blair, children, Terah Blair of Fort Myers, FL, Saul Blair & wife Andrea of Mount Belview, TX, Bonnie Blair of Arlington, TX, Dinah Dixon & husband Brian of Camden, Arkansas, Jordan Blair and wife Erin of Ben Wheeler, TX, and son-in-law, John Dickison of Gordon, TX, sisters, Janie Withers of Abilene, and Dena Schroeder and husband Wayland of Abilene, and 8 grandchildren, Lauren Stockstill & husband Jonathan, Brandon Dickison, Canaan Dickison, Kemplin Dickison, Kristin Dickison, Zion Blair, Avva Blair, and Judah Blair. He is preceded in death by his parents, Brandon and Carla Blair, and grandson, Levi Blair.
