Blev was born in Bronxville, N.Y. on Oct. 3, 1933. Blev graduated from Bronxville High School and went on to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he studied chemical engineering and graduated with a degree in business.

He became a stockbroker for Clark Dodge and worked on Wall Street for a few years. In 1961, he met the love of his life, Edda Bang, from Oslo.

Within two years, they had two children, and were ready to move to the suburbs. They moved to Darien in 1966, where Blev soon started his own business as a financial analyst. In 1996, he and Edda moved to Sarasota, Fl., ready for retirement, golf and tennis, and meeting new friends.
