Mark Lemar, 58, of Richmond, Ind., passed away at his residence on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019.
He was born on April 27, 1961, in Lafayette, Ind. to the late Ronnald and Frances (Amick) Lemar.
In addition to his parents, Mark was preceded in death by his brother, Ronnald “Lee” Lemar.
Mark loved everything and everyone. He was known to mentor his family and friends and was creative in all that he did. He was described as a great listener and thought nothing was impossible. Mark lived to make others laugh and was a man of many words, and even more talents. He was considered an independent businessman and wore several hats, but most importantly, Mark was a stay-at-home dad. Mark was a child of God and spent many years serving the Lord in ministry. He was a pastor for several fellowships of believers.
Mark was a 1980 graduate of Troy High School. After graduation, he attended the University of Toledo, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in 1985. In 1995, Mark graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Ky. with his Masters in Theology and a Masters in Divinity.
