Ryan Hunter Blair

April 26, 1980 — March 30, 2024


Ryan Hunter Blair, born on April 26, 1980, in Lynchburg, Virginia, departed this world on March 30, 2024. His radiant spirit and remarkable intellect touched the lives of all who knew him.

Ryan's brilliance was matched only by his kindness. He possessed a rare combination of talent, intellect, and generosity that illuminated every room he entered. His unwavering love for his family and friends served as a beacon of light in their lives.

In the journey of life, Ryan was accompanied by his beloved partner, Nicholas Fowler, whose memory he cherished deeply. Ryan is survived by his loving mother, Martha Tweedy Blair; devoted brother, Evan Blair; Evan’s partner, Hannah; cherished sister, Ivey Blair; Ivey’s partner, KI; and their adored children, Bentley and Karrington. Additionally, Ryan leaves behind a treasure trove of cherished memories shared with his lifelong friends.

Ryan had many passions including philosophy, political science, music, travel, and especially social justice. He enjoyed conversation and easily connected with new people through his genuine inquiring spirit.

Ryan's legacy is one of love, compassion, and intellectual curiosity. An avid reader and writer, he found solace and inspiration in the pages of literature. His passion for learning was infectious, and his keen intellect enriched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him.

As we mourn the loss of Ryan, let us also celebrate the profound impact he made during his time with us. May his legacy of love and light continue to guide us in the days ahead.

The family will be receiving family and friends on April 13, from 1:00pm-5:00pm at his mother's home.

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.
