Blair Morley Mason, born on January 14, 1956, passed away at the St. Boniface Hospital on Friday, October 20, 2023 at the age of 67 years; the only son of Frank & Joyce Mason and only grandson of George & Rachel Mason & also only grandson of Milton & Elizabeth Boote.
Blair was born at the Misericordia Hospital in Winnipeg, MB. He grew up on his grandfathers & fathers farm located in the Kingsley District in the RM of Pembina, located 4 miles south of Somerset, MB.
He attended school for four years at Kingsley, two years at Somerset, two at La Riviere, then finishing at Manitou Nellie McClung Collegiate.
After that he took up farming with his dad on the family farm. Even as a young man he liked being around the farm animals and operating machinery as he enjoyed being outside.
Over the years, Blair would usually find work in the winter. He worked for Kimberly Clark, the town of Morden, Farm King, Holiday Mountain Ski Resort, Fehr Meats at Manitou, Interprovincial Pipeline & Enbridge Pipeline and for Manitoba Hydro.
Blair was a kind hearted person and he never liked to see anybody get stepped on or taken advantage of. Over the years he donated a lot of money to the poor & homeless and to Christian Ministry’s. Lots of times he would give somebody in need of money out of his pocket. Blair also donated generously to hospitals in the province, local & Winnipeg.
Over the years, Blair played various sports, baseball, hockey, ice skating, golf & curling. He had quite a few friends and also enjoyed the company of older people. Blair always tried to keep up with his relatives. To Blair, family was important. He enjoyed friendship with people and always had time to talk. He took pride in his farms, and his farmyard was always kept organized even after he became sick.
Blair liked old things and collected a lot of items. He made a museum in the yard & took great pleasure in showing people. His love of life was reading the bible and accepting Jesus Christ his only personal savior.
He always said “good works will not get me to heaven but believing what Jesus did for him at the cross at Calvary by shedding his blood for his sins.
“Jesus the author and finisher of our Faith
Be Grateful & be Thankful.
To our Lord Jesus Christ
And see if your days go a bit better!”
Funeral services will be held on Tuesday November 14, 2023 at 1:00 pm in the Manitou United Church with Rev. Jim Barber & Rev. Melanie Kauppila officiating.
