Birth: Aug. 10, 1941

Death: Feb. 1, 2012

Citrus County
Florida, USA

God needed help with his flower garden so on February 1, 2012, he called Thayer R. Fair, 70, to heaven to help. Although she was born a northerner in Boston Massachusetts on August 10, 1941 to Arthur and Phyllis Moody (who both preceded her in death), she became a converted southerner with the influence of her surviving husband of 44 years, Harold D. Fair. In 1970, Harold and Thayer moved to Floral City from Tarpon Springs and where they owned and operated The Fairwayy Restaurant in two different locations around Floral City. Illness forced the sale of the restaurant and Thayer later volunteered for the Citrus County Fair where she became indispensable as the fair secretary working there for over 25 years where during the annual fair you could often hear the occasional page of "Thayer Fair to the Fair Office". Family was her highest priority in life and she was happiest when she was surrounded by her family. She is survived by 7 children: Harold D. Fair, Jr. of Afghanistan; Darrell K. Fair of Guam, Tracy L. Horst of Inverness; Charles M. Fair of Gulfport, MS; Charles F. Bennett of Ft. Walton Beach; Kenneth J. Fair of Gainesville; and Glen A. Fair of Lynden, WA. She took great joy in spoiling her 13 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Sherrol Hanna of Tampa. She was a happy, joyful person who enjoyed many of the simple things in life such planting flowers and a vegetable garden; sunrises and sunsets at the beach; fishing; playing cards with friends and family; and cooking delicious food. She was always willing to give a helping hand to friends and organizations such as the Lion's Club, the VFW Post 7122 in Floral City or the American Legion. Thayer was loved and respected by all that knew her. She will be FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS! The family asks those that were privileged enough to know Thayer to join us for a celebration of her life. A Memorial Gathering will be held on Saturday, Feb. 11th at 2:00 PM at the Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home. The VFW Post 7122 Women's Auxiliary will be officiating. Her urn will be placed in the columbarium of Florida National Cemetery at a later date. Even though she loved flowers we feel like she would want to make a difference in other people's lives, so we ask that in lieu of flowers a donation be made in her name to a worthwhile charity such as the American Cancer Society.
