Born April 20, 1970 in Elizabeth, New Jersey, he was the son of the late Dennis Lenster and Anita Lenster of Troutman. He was a loving and caring person who never met a stranger. Omar loved to cook and his favorite football team was the New York Giants. He worked at Daimler for 25 years where he was a member of the UAW and also was a previous coach for youth football for TYAA. He was known for breaking records in football and track during his high school years at South Iredell. He also was the President of his neighborhood reunion—“Inglewood Reunion”.

In addition to his father, Dennis Lenster, he was preceded in death by his brother, Shakeel Lenster; grandparents, Corie Walters and Dennis Lenster, and John Henry Mitchell; and by an aunt, Ira Lenster.

Left to cherish his memory is his mother, Anita Lenster; grandmother, Ogretta Mitchell; by his children, Shaqwana Lenster, Shante Lenster, Shakaya Lenster, Yasmine Lenster, and Omar, Jr.; sisters, Jehan (Dewon) Carr and Tonya (Kenyatta) Greene; brother, Amir (Shanece) Belvin; five grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews and special people in his life.

A home going service will be held on Saturday, August 31, 2019 at 12:00 PM at New Life Missionary Baptist Church in Troutman with Dr. Jim F. Carr, Jr. officiating. Burial will follow in Green Acres Cemetery in Mooresville. The wake will be held one hour prior to the service at the church on Saturday beginning at 11:00 AM.
