Lenny Lee Blair

Lenny Lee Blair, 64, passed away on Friday, September 22, 2023, at MyMichgan Medical Center in West Branch, MI. Born on February 16, 1959, in Howell, MI to Leonard and Helen (Swegles) Blair, he lived in St. Helen, MI for the past nine years. He was formerly of Fowlerville, MI. Lenny was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother.

Lenny was known for his contagious smile, spontaneous construction projects, and consistent desire to know the latest town gossip. He was friendly in nature, and was regularly found laughing and talking with neighbors or driving to town to look for the hottest meat sale. Lenny was a fiercely loving and protective father. He was best known by his children for being their go to for guidance on house projects, brutal honesty on life advice, and an endless source of cheesy dad jokes. Lenny was loved by his family and was even given numerous nicknames throughout the years such as: Uncle Penny Pincher, Len-Dad, Daddy Dearest, Lenster, Leonardo, and Uncle Harley.

Lenny was a well-rounded man, who enjoyed riding motorcycles, snowmobiling, encouraging others to take on construction projects, sharing his love for farming, camping, and adding fuel to the fire in all senses of the word. He had a deep love for classic cars, especially his ‘97 Stepside Chevy and his Limited Edition sublime green Challenger. Lenny’s typical day consisted of his daily trip to town to check the price of gas, multiple trips to local restaurants to get his favorite value snacks, and an endless flow of Ancient Aliens, Westerns, and Bonanza being played on the television.

Lenny is survived by his loving wife, Sandra Blair of St. Helen; his son, Guy Blair of Fowlerville; and his daughters, Leeanne (Dustin) Campbell of Texas, Samantha (Pete) Kozdron of Grand Rapids, MI, and Sabrina (Matt) VandenHeuvel of St. Helen. He will be deeply missed by his grandchildren: Bailey, Eleanor, Logan, Lillian, Levi, and Sophia. Lenny is also survived by his sister, Vana (George) Brock of FL.

Lenny was preceded in death by his parents.

Cremation has taken place and the family will be hosting an intimate memorial at a later date. Memorial contributions can be made to the family.

The funeral arrangements are being handled by Steuernol & McLaren Funeral Home in St. Helen, MI.
