Blair Slabbekoorn (October 11, 1983 – July 17, 2022)

Blair Slabbekoorn

We are extremely sad to tell of the passing of Blair Christopher Slabbekoorn. Born October 11, 1983, died July 17th, 2022, at the too young age of 38. Father of much-loved Breeann Slabbekoorn, son of Christopher Slabbekoorn (2020) and Betteann Clinton, brother to Amy Slabbekoorn and Janine Mastronardi (Vince). Fun Uncle to Morgan Slabbekoorn, Eli and Enzo Mastronardi.

Blair suffered illness for the past 4 years but always put in a brave face and did what he could to help others. He loved to garden and always made sure his mom was surrounded by flowers outside and plants in the house. He was a creative cook, although there was often a wait for the dish to be perfect.

He liked to fish and hunt, and the outdoors was always his preferred place to be. When we could not find him as a child, he was likely at the creek fishing or down playing in the swamp area by the lake.

He loved music often finding little known internet artists. He had a big heart. A memory that showed this is when a lady was knocked off the road in her car, he immediately jumped the 10ft ditch in cold water and snow to help her with no regard to his new expensive shoes he had just bought! His only thought was “we have to help her.”

Blair was known in many ways, by many people but in whatever way you remember him, please remember his big heart, his crazy wit, and his way of putting others before himself. Enjoy heaven Blair with your Dad. We will see you again.
