As a young man, Blaz worked on a Russian ship as a sailor for 10 years. He returned home to Mrkopalj before his mother died, and at that time he met his bride-to-be. He left for the USA in 1907 and settled in Roslyn, Washington. In 1908, he moved to Red Lodge and then sent for Augustina Cuculich, and they were married 16 June, 1912, in Red Lodge, Montana. Blaz and Augustina had 3 children: Rudolph, Pauline and Mary.
