Blair, who passed away in 2015 at age 87, was a former attorney and a frequent contributor to philanthropic causes in the Columbia area. Blair served on the board of directors for Lindsey Wilson College -- a private four-year college affiliated with the United Methodist Church -- from 1989 to 1992. In 2011, the local parks and recreation department dedicated the Jim Blair Community Recreation Center in his honor.
