He was self-employed, as a contractor for FedEx in Pensacola/PCB, FL until his partial retirement when he helped host/manage vacation rentals as part of a shared family business.
In his early years, Blayne enjoyed rugby and beach volleyball. He was a fan of Iowa Hawkeye Sports, especially football. He had a great sense of humor, loved to laugh and loved to make others laugh even if the laugh was on him. Together with his soul mate of 28 years, Robbin Schott, they enjoyed camping, canoeing, bicycling and the beach, as well as golfing with brother Brent, "Yogi", whom they also shared some fun-filled vacations to the Bahamas with. Blayne had a caring side for animals and will be deeply missed by his pets: 3 cats, Bindi, Boo and Trick and his dog, Boomer.
