I am so sorry to hear of Lamar's passing. 30 years ago, Lamar was dating my friend Wanda. Between Lamar and Wanda and David Horn, they set me and Jeff, my husband up on a blind date. I am forever thankful for the friendship we had and how it all played out. Lamar was a very sweet person. I pray for the children and all the grandchildren he has left behind. Carry on with your wonderful memories. Rest in peace, my friend.

I don’t believe I have any childhood memories that do not include the Mann family. My parents were friends with Lamar and his first wife Donis. Lendy and Brandy were like my sisters. Some of my favorite memories were our camping trips at Lake Chinnabee. Hiking to the waterfall and jumping off. Feeling so free and surrounded by love and laughter. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I love you always.

Lamar was like a second father to me for most of my childhood. There’s so many memories I have with him, but one of my favorites is when me and his daughter Brandy would hang out at the shop and we would drive this old truck around the lot; and then we would sit in the cars and pretend they were gonna be our cars when we turned 16. He was the cool dad but also got our tails when we messed up. A lot of lessons learn from this man. I miss him and he will forever hold a special place in my heart. Prayers for my sweet friend and her family as they grieve his loss.
