Bob and Rosemary Blazier at the 2014 Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce GEM luncheon.

CRYSTAL LAKE If youve lived in the Crystal Lake area for a while, youve probably met, or at least know of, Bob and Rosemary Blazier.
[Bob] and Rosemary have been involved with starting, participating and expanding literally over 40 organizations in McHenry County, said Kathleen Caldwell, chairwoman of the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
Bob Blazier is a former superintendent of Crystal Lake Community Consolidated School District 47, a former Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce president and a former vice president of marketing and education for Northern Illinois Medical Center in McHenry (now Centegra Hospital McHenry), among many other positions.
It was fitting to name the building after the Blaziers, especially since Bob helped create the Chamber foundation in 2007, in part to renovate the aging pump house, Caldwell said.
Bob Blazier grew up in poverty in Kewanee. His parents died when he was young, so he was raised by his sister a good Christian woman, according to John Blazier who instilled in him a strong faith in God and an inner drive to succeed.
[He grew up believing], If Im going to go out and do anything in my life, Ive got to do it myself, John Blazier said. [He has always said], You can do anything you put your mind to.
Bob put himself through college on an athletic scholarship, and it was at Western Illinois University that he met a young woman from Spring Valley who mirrored the values Bob had come to live by: faithfully follow God, give back to the community and empower others.
They married in 1949, only one week after graduating from WIU. That was the start of a 67-year relationship that only has become stronger over time.
We both feel we were very fortunate to find each other because our compatibility and love is the same as when we first met, Bob Blazier said.
Throughout the years, Bob often has been the brains behind new programs, and he often receives the praise, but Rosemary Blazier always has been his rock.
A lot of things I did, Rosemary helped with by coming and supporting me, Bob said.
We werent looking to move, Bob Blazier said.
Things were just starting to happen, Bob said. The town was very proud of the schools and supportive of education. There were a lot of couples in their early 30s our age raising a family.
Plus, it was a recreational community a positive for Bob and Rosemary, both avid golfers and recreation enthusiasts.
Bob became principal at what now is Lundahl Middle School, and Rosemary Blazier taught physical education at what now is Husmann Elementary.
Rosemary spent 35 years in education; Bob, 36 years, including 12 years as superintendent.
Bob then spent five years at the Northern Illinois Medical Center and 17 years as president of the Chamber.
Along the way, they became involved in other organizations, volunteering their time and talents and encouraging others to do the same.
Coming from education and then getting involved in business, [Bob] has a very good way of communicating and teaching people and getting people involved in stuff, so thats been a big bonus in the community, Gray said.
You might see Bob Blazier at Home State Bank, where he still works as director of communications.
