I went to Athens Tech with Lamar. He was such a funny guy and game for anything. I remember many things he said and many things he did. I saw that he passed away on the Gordon High School website. We went to Gordon also. He was the football manager. He was just the nicest and wittiest guy. I saw he had four children and I just wanted to reach out and share my memories of this sweet guy. I miss him. I know that’s strange since I haven’t seen him since 1963, but I just wanted to let you know something nice about him.
