Services are pending but will be held in San Diego, according to son Thomas Blair, III.
The recent passing of award winning journalist/writer Tom Blair is a great loss.
Tom's column in the San Diego Union-Tribune was the must read for every San Diegan who wanted to be in the know. He is also the former Editor of San Diego Magazine and a well known writer.
Tom and I were good friends and we kept each other informed of the latest San Diego gossip and rumors about the movers and shakers around town. We both helped then-Councilman Carl DeMaio come out of the closet. Tom, who was a proud gay man, helped and supported many LGBTQ organizations.
Rest in peace old friend.
