Lamar had just turned 81 on March 18, 2020. Due to COVID-19 this was the first time ever his family was not with him to celebrate his special day. Lamar was diagnosed with COVID-19 around June 15th and lost the battle on June 30, 2020.
Reflecting on his life, our father enjoyed fishing and spending time with his family. His family meant the world to him, he was the oldest son of nine and he wore that title well. He was known to everyone as brother and he never met a stranger.
God blessed and allowed his daughters, son in law and his grandchildren to be by his side his last four hours here on earth. We were able to pray with him, we shared wonderful memories and played some of his favorite songs. Saying goodbye is NEVER easy but knowing we were there with him till the end did lighten the load. Gone but never forgotten.
Love you always,
— the above was written and sent in by one of Lamar’s daughters.
