Default R. Greg Blair death

A few years back, I got to meet Greg Blair at ER in West Chester. He was one of those, in addition to John Larson that gave me a tour of ER. He retired about three years ago from ER. He was formerly the CEO of ER.

Thank you for posting this BelsCortfan.

We were saddened to learn about Greg's passing. Greg was an employee of Cincinnati Microwave Inc (commonly referred to on the forum as "CMI"), inventors of Escort and Passport branded radar detectors. After unsuccessfully diverging into other electronics markets, CMI went bankrupt in the mid-90s. Greg was able to manage purchasing CMI's detector business and hired key CMI detector employees to found Escort Inc, including yours truly. I didn't miss a single day of work in the transition

Greg successfully steered Escort Inc into instant success. The legendary Mini Solo, Passport 8500 and 9500ix were products developed under his leadership which catapulted Escort Inc into undisputed leader of the industry. Greg will not be forgotten.

Very sorry for your loss, gentlemen. Sounds like he touched a lot of lives. What better remembrance could someone ask for? Prayers for Greg and his family as well as his "Escort family".

Dan
