Blaine had quite a variety of employment. While yet in high school, he worked with his father in the timber business followed by several years at the Flxible Co. in Loudonville, OH. Then he and his wife Gladys operated the general store in his home town of Greer for 13 years. The family including the three children then joined Gladys' parents on a farm near Coshocton, OH. On the death of Gladys' father, the family moved to Loudonville, OH where Blaine and his father operated the Downtown Shell Service station.

In September 2002 they moved to Crystal River, FL to be near Ruby's daughter, Lynn Dively. April 2013 they moved to Sunflower Springs Assisted Living Community in Homosassa.
