Forrest “Woody” Blair of Naples, FL and Bethel, CT entered into eternal rest on March 30, 2020, at Glen Hill Center, Danbury, CT. He was born May 24, 1924 to Harold and Mary (Reese) Blair in Troy, NY. Woody grew up in Arlington, Vermont and attended schools there.

Woody finally retired in 1993 from Teledyne Corp. in Ansonia, CT. In 1992 Woody and his devoted wife of 31 years, Carole (Ajer) Blair decided to retire to Naples, FL where they have been residents for 27 years. In the summers they visited Bethel. Forrest was a member of the Countryside Golf and Country Club in Naples and was a longtime member of Naples Elks Lodge 2010. He also was a member of Christ the King Lutheran Church, Newtown, CT.
