Blaine retired from PennDot as a Foreman after 30 years of service. He attended the Asbury United Methodist Church in Harrisonville, PA and was a past member of the Forbes Road Lions Club. Blaine was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend.
Blaine had many interests and hobbies. He was an avid outdoorsman. He loved hunting gobblers in the spring, deer in the fall, wading a stream or sitting on a bucket along side a lake catching trout. He especially enjoyed muzzleloader season, hunting with his family and friends, driving deer on Sideling Hill Mountain. He also had a passion for butchering hogs.

He also enjoyed collecting and restoring Farmall Cub tractors. He would show them off during the annual Fall Folk Festival, entering them into the parade or sitting them outside his house.
