Lamar Anderson, loving husband to Shirley, passed away March 20th. He is survived by daughters Tracy and Kim and sons (in-law) Toby and Mark. Grandchildren Jayne, Jill, Tyler, Tristan and Jacklyn lost their Papa too soon. He is also survived by his mother Mary Louise, brother Eugene and sister Libby. He is preceded in death by his father Milton and brother Charlie.

Lamar and Shirley were high school sweethearts that enjoyed 44 fun years together. After proudly serving in the U.S. Army, he worked until retirement as a diesel mechanic at Chicago Kenworth.

He was devoted to his family and proud to be Papa. His generous nature and kind-hearted soul touched everyone he met. He brought friends together as family and will be missed by many in Chicago, Tennessee and Arizona.

He was never one to say goodbye, so we will say, "See ya later."
