June 17, 1975 – Nov. 6, 2015 It is with great sadness that the family of Blair Andrew Chapman, 40, of Stettler, Alberta announce his passing on November 6, 2015, in Edmonton, Alberta.
Blair was born June 17, 1975 to Morgan and Linda Chapman in Stettler, Alberta. Blair attended Stettler Elementary, Middle and High School graduating in 1995. Blair then began working and volunteering in the Stettler community. He was employed and worked at Sobeys since 2001. He volunteered for the Heartland Arts Troup Society (HATS) attending most of their performances and passing out their show programs at the door. Blair was also highly involved with the Junior B hockey team, the Stettler Lightning, serving with them for 17 years.Blair had a passion for music, Country Music in particular and hardly ever missed a local concert or chance to join his favourite local group Domino on stage.
Blair was easily recognizable as he walked the streets of Stettler on his daily trips to the post office and downtown. Always quick to say hi or give a big hug, Blair enjoyed life and laughed easily and often. His presence within our small community will be greatly missed. Thank you so much to the family and many, many friends and co-workers that helped to support and enrich Blair’s life.
Blair is predeceased by his grandparents Bill and Beth Chapman and Clarence and Della Farrell, as well as his beloved dogs: Spike, Teek and Tessa.
Blair is survived by his loving parents Morgan and Linda Chapman of Stettler, his sister Janene (Matthew) Barnett and nephews Liam and Joshua; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and other family members.

Several of Blair’s friends read memories and poems to honour Blair’s life. Blair chose all of the music played for his service as well as for the pictorial tribute, showing all of the friends, accomplishments through his life.
