Bill Blair was a true gentleman, professional and confident. His support of me when I came over to P&G, from Gillette, was instrumental in my ability to transition into the new company and role. He was sincere and willing to go to bat for me on all business issues. He never betrayed my trust, and provided invaluable counsel on all my HR and personnel issues. Bottom line is that Bill Blair was my friend! R.I.P. Bill! My condolences to his family. Eddie Stephens P&G Central Team Leader
Bill was an inspiration, a servant-leader. He viewed his role as a counselor, mentor, one who would build-in to others. He positively transformed many lives. I became a better leader, and more importantly, a better person having known Bill. He was, and continues to be, a personal inspiration.
Love and prayers for comfort to all of you. Chris and all of your precious family, Sara and all of yours, Frank and your family. I remember Bill's sweet spirit from the time we were kids celebrating family reunions on the farm. He always had a smile and a great sense of humor, even when teasing his siblings or cousins. I know he has left a legacy of love and joy to all who had the blessing of knowing him.
My deepest condolences in the loss of Bill to his wife Chris, sons Todd and Matthew, his two daughters-in-law and his two granddaughters I and my family knew Bill for many years in attending the same church. He had a beautiful smile and was always encouraging to so many He loved the Lord and was so faithful in attending church. He loved his family and showed it so much. He is now sitting at the feet of Jesus. My blessings and grace to his loving family. Phyllis Rosczuk
I was so fortunate to come to know Bill early in my P&G career. He was such an encourager and had a way of making everyone he touched feel so special. I will forever remember his generous smile! I pray you will be comforted as you grieve this loss, but rejoice in the knowledge that we will one day be reunited with him.
Our condolences to the Blair family. Bill was a quiet, but confident leader who always inquired of others. He had a great disposition about him. May God's grace comfort Kris, Todd and Matt during their time of grief; but, hold to the certainty you will see Bill again. Michael, Amy and Ashleigh Rosczuk
