With profound sorrow, we announce the passing of Michael Floriyan Blair,
affectionately known as Mike who left us on May 7, 2024, at the age of
63. Born on July 26, 1960, in Long Beach, California, Michael matured
into a man of great character, strength, and determination. Always full
of humor and warmth, he made every room he entered a little brighter, a
little happier. Michael lived a full and vibrant life, touching and
influencing countless lives along his journey. His spirit will live on
in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

Michael was a dedicated and accomplished engineer in the technology
industry. He was a life-long learner, always eager to tackle new
challenges and bring inventive solutions to complex problems. His
passion for his work was evident to all who knew him, and his
contributions to the field were significant. Despite his professional
success, he remained humble and grounded, always quick to deflect praise
and give credit to his team. Michael's professional life was marked by
his resilience, brilliance, and an unwavering commitment to excellence.

He was very proud of his academic achievements, holding a Bachelor of
Science in Electronics Engineering Technology from DeVry University and
a Master of Business Administration in Technology Management from the
University of Phoenix. These degrees were a testament to his dedication
to education and commitment to expanding his knowledge in both
engineering and business.

Michael served as an Engineering Manager at KLA-Tencor Corporation,
where he led with integrity and dedication, inspiring those around him
to achieve greatness. His leadership was characterized by his ability to
foster collaboration, innovation, and growth within his team.

Michael leaves behind his beloved spouse Dian Blair, who was his rock
and partner in all his life's endeavors. Their love story, filled with
shared laughter, adventures, and mutual respect, was truly inspiring to
all who knew them. He is predeceased by his father, Michael Blair, and
is survived by his mother, Dorothy Berseth.

His absence leaves a void that cannot be filled, but his memory will
continue to inspire and guide us.
