Gregory Scott Blair - Age 45, Portapique, NS and Jamie Marie (Gratto) Blair - Age 40, Portapique, NS. It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of two of our beloved family members. Father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter, grandparents and friend. Greg was born on April 23, 1974 to Jack and Carolann (MacBurnie) Blair. Jamie was born on October 18, 1979 to Kurt and Tina (Lane) Gratto. Greg and Jamie were dedicated members of the West Colchester Minor Hockey Association and could always be found at the rink supporting their two youngest sons. Greg and Jamie ran GB Gas and Energy together, a family business which included their two older sons. Greg and Jamie were lovers of the outdoors and instilled this in all four of their boys. They were the life of the party and always went above and beyond for anyone that crossed their paths in life. Greg will always be remembered for his sense of humour, his love for life, and his special bond he held so dearly with his best friend, his father. Jamie will always be remembered by her beautiful smile, her contagious laugh and her ability to always keep everything together for everyone. Greg and Jamie loved spending every minute surrounded by family and especially their new granddaughter, Hayden, whom they loved more than life. There will forever be a void in our hearts with these two unforgettable, amazing souls gone, but we will always cherish our memories of them. Greg and Jamie were so loved by their boys, Tyler (Jade Boudreau) Blair, Craig (Krista) Blair, Alexander Blair and Jack Blair; granddaughter, Hayden Jean Blair; sisters, Kelly (Shawn Rushton) Blair, Rebecca (Cory) MacKay; brothers, Alec (Brittany) Gratto, Jeffrey Gratto; grandmother, Irene (McCully) Gratto; nieces, Jaime Lee (Devin) Thompson, Michaela Dawn Blair-Raymond, Scarlet Gratto, Violet Gratto, Jasmine Gratto; nephews, Zavier Gratto; great nieces, Ava Lee Thompson, Amelia Dawn Thompson; fur grandbabies, Zoe, Molly, Joe, Sawyer and Brock. Greg was predeceased by his grandparents, Aubrey and Helena (MacKenzie) Blair, Jack and Marjorie (Reade) MacBurnie. Jamie was predeceased by her grandparents, Keith and Helen (Baker) Lane, Aubrey Gratto.
