Christopher John Blastorah

October 24, 1955 - November 18, 2021

It is with sadness that we mourn the passing of the pillar of our family, Christopher Blastorah.
He will be deeply missed by his wife of 38 years Kathy, his daughters Elizabeth and Alice (Basil), grandchildren Luciana and Oscar and siblings Billy, Peter, Joe, Marie and Patti Jo. Respected by many, Chris will also be missed by his large extended family, his many godchildren, friends and neighbors. Chris was a devout Catholic and we were blessed to learn many valuable lessons of love and generosity from him. Even in his last days Chris maintained his concern for the wellbeing of others. An avid outdoorsman, and usually clad in a combination of plaid and camouflage, Chris could often be found working or fishing at his favourite place - 'The Point'. Chris also enjoyed driving his collection of tractors, atv, and 'granny-mobiles', often with grandkids in tow. We will miss his sense of humour, sound advice, and love. A sincere thank you to Dr. Swain, Dr. Xi and the nurses and staff at Northumberland Hills Hospital for their dedication. A funeral mass will be held at St. Michael the Archangel Church 379 Division Street in Cobourg at 1:30pm on Friday, November 26th. A private burial will be held after mass followed by a reception at MacCoubrey Funeral Home 30 King Street East in Cobourg at 3:30pm on the same day. People planning to attend the reception will need to provide proof of full vaccination at the door to achieve entry . Donations in Chris' memory may be made to Northumberland Hills Hospital or a charity of your choice.
