He was born in Cheverly, MD on July 29, 1968 to the late Margaret Cardwell Regester and Thomas Michael Blaser of Hollywood, MD. He was raised by his father and his late step-mother, Pauline Grace Blaser.
Blaze spent his career in the automotive industry with his last employment being at Tom Hodges Automotive as a Parts Manager. His love of cars and how they worked began at a young age and evolved with experience and age as he became an expert mechanic. He embraced computers and technology and was proactive in learning new things. He especially enjoyed teaching his daughter how to work on cars.
On November 10, 2012, he married his beloved wife, Tricia Lea Callis-Blaser at Hollywood United Methodist church in Hollywood, MD. Together they celebrated over 6 wonderful years of marriage. His hobbies included travelling to the Mountains of Maine and Virginia and taking trips to historic sites, particularly Williamsburg, Gettysburg and Jamestown. He loved animals, with a horse named Hope and two Border Collie mixes named Cheyenne and Takoda.
