He was the son of Luther Roy and Anna Dickson Woodall. He was born on July 15, 1925 in Bartow County. Lamar was married to Emily Reeves Woodall on April 1, 1949 by the Rev. J. V. Speer. Lamar would have celebrated his 62nd wedding anniversary on April 1. To this union two children were born, Cathy Sue and Jerry Cox of Dawsonville, Ga., and Jeffrey and Wanda Woodall of Dahlonega, Ga.; three grandsons, Ryan, Kody, and Ethan Woodall; one great-granddaughter, Jessica Woodall; and one brother, Eugene Woodall of White, Ga. He was preceded in death by his parents.
Lamar served in the U. S. Navy during World War II, and he was a member of Bethlehem Baptist Church, and was an ordained deacon.
Lamar accepted Christ at the age of 15, and as a young man, he always greeted you with a great big smile. Lamar was a devoted husband, loving father, grandfather, and hard worker all his life.
Lamar played the game of life with the Golden Rule as its center of men and women came to know him as a friend who was a friend indeed.
He set his house in order in 1995 when he disposed of his property, so when his tombstone is erected, it will complete the record of his life. The body returns to the dust from whence it came and the soul returns to the God who gave it. Rest in peace, Lamar, your last battle is fought. The God of all earth sounds taps and lights out for the morning's dawn of Eternity is at hand.
Funeral services were held Monday, Feb. 7, at 10 a.m. at Dahlonega Funeral Home Chapel, Dahlonega, Ga., with the Pastor Michael Rodgers officiating. Pallbearers were members of Bethlehem Baptist Church. Interment followed at Bethlehem Baptist Church Cemetery. The family received friends on Sunday, Feb. 6, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the funeral home.
