We just received notice that a fellow family member to SFWDA; Depsy LaMar, a loving wife mother, and part of our southern family has passed away. Mike LaMar is a retired US Marine Corp veteran (Sargent Major, I believe). He lost his wife of 20 years this past Sunday. He has children who are 13 and 7 years old. He has been struggling to make ends meet on his retirement pay while running a startup business as a real estate home inspector. He had no life insurance on his wife, so he has been hit pretty hard financially with funeral costs etc.
Mike has been a longstanding member of Rocket City Rock Crawlers (RCRC), and for many years while stationed here in Huntsville he coordinated the club meetings at the Marine Corp Reserve Center here in town. He left and spent several years at 29 palms Ca before retiring and returning to Huntsville.
The funeral home site is here:
A donation site is setup here:
RCRC 4X4 club has a motion before the board to donate a substantial amount toward covering the funeral costs and I suspect the vote will pass with no issue.
