ROCK HILL, S.C. — A Rock Hill man and father of four has died weeks after falling while he was hanging Christmas lights at a home in Fort Mill.
Robert Jason Blair was hired to help a family hang Christmas lights on Nov. 20. He was on a ladder over the driveway when he fell.
“That day I didn’t know he was going by himself to do Christmas lights," said Blair's brother, Roger Eddington.
Eddington said his 41-year-old brother fell about 25 feet. He was taken to Atrium Health’s Carolinas Medical Center with a traumatic brain injury, skull fracture and cracked ribs.
Channel 9 learned he died from his injuries Tuesday.
The owner of the home where the accident happened started a GoFundMe page to raise $5,000 for Blair after he fell.
There will be a celebration of life for Blair on Saturday. It begins at 2 p.m. at Whitesell Funeral Home on Riverview Road in Rock Hill.
