We shall always be the better for having known Lamar. He was a true Christian, friend and dedicated servant of God! He leaves behind memories, friends and loved ones that are a tribute to his Godly way of life. His smile lit up any room and his faith was so contagious. He is resting high on that mountain and singing with the angel choir.

I remember as a child watching Lamar eating breakfast. He would get a big spoonful of peanut butter and pour syrup over it . He ate it all with white bread.


I tried it once. It didn't work.

I met Lamar through his sister Inez Riley. I was her friend and enjoyed the time I spent with her. She was always talking about Lamar and all the good times she spent with him and his family.
When she was declining in health, Lamar was there. We worked together in trying to assist her through her life to the end. Lamar was always there.
I saw this with his life, how his family came together for him. The family and friends were there for him.
Lamar was a true friend and I cherish the time he spent with me. A TRUE FRIEND!
