Blair Carl Syme, 51, of Baker City, died Aug. 30, 2005, at his home.
There will be no funeral.
Blair was the golf pro at Quail Ridge Golf Club, fulfilling his lifelong dream and goal of living in this part of Northeastern Oregon.
The son of Margaret Jane Syme of Salem and John Syme of Seneca, S.C., Blair had loved the game of golf all of his life. He had been a manager and teaching professional at courses in greater Chicago, Roanoke, Va., and Charleston, St. Stevens and Myrtle Beach, S.C., areas.
A great player, teacher and manager, Blair had been a special friend and inspiration to young and old alike. He will be deeply missed and ever in the memory of family and friends all over the country.
“May you now fly high with your eagles and may they continue to guide and care for you,” his family said. “We will all love you always.”
Survivors include his parents and sisters, Marilee Syme of Vancouver, Wash., and Sheryl Leitner of Chattanooga, Tenn.
Gray’s West & Co. is in charge of arrangements.
