Lamar was a great guy and "THE BIG BROTHER" that my wife Connie "LOVED and ADMIRED" for her entire 70 years of life. Connie was always the youngest sister and truly looked up to Lamar her whole life. Connie has thousands and thousands of fantastic memories of her Brother Lamar, while they were growing up and even since they became adults. A close knit Family of (8) children and their Mom and Dad made for a huge Family with much Love. Connie always said that Lamar was always the kindest and sweetest person she ever knew.
As for myself I have never met a person that was such a talented carpenter as Lamar Jackson. I have seen many of the wonderful items Lamar built over the past (52) years . He was a true genuine craftsman that was admired and respected by all who knew him. Lamar was my Brother-in-law and we spent many evenings playing "POKER", also with his other Brothers, Ronald and Kenneth and sometimes Norman in the "GOOD OLD DAYS". . I always lost all my money because I was the only card player that was not a "JACKSON BOY". Those Jackson Boys made up their game rules as the poker game progressed so I always lost all my money. It doesn't matter because Lamar made me (2) glider swings that I absolutely LOVE and that I will always cherish and keep in pristine condition , in his memory........REST IN PEACE LAMAR... You were the best of the best!!!!!!!

Uncle Lamar, you will be dearly missed. I cherish the memories I have of you growing up. I remember going over to you and Aunt Pat’s house for cookouts and listening to you and my dad sing Hank Williams Jr songs. I remember how excited I was when you and Aunt Pat and Clint would come over for cookouts at my house and the excitement we all felt when we went and saw our Braves clinch the 1991 western division. I can see you with the biggest smile on your face now that you are reunited with Aunt Pat and Grandma and Grandpa Jackson. No more pain, no more struggles to take a breath. You were an awesome Uncle to me and I wish that I would have stayed more in touch with you as I grew older. Rest In Peace Uncle Lamar. We love you
