Lamar L. Ellis

Lamar "Mar Mar" Ellis, 50 years young, passed into eternal rest Wednesday, June 7, 2023.

Lamar was born to Charlotte (Grady) Tomlin on June 4, 1973 in Albany, NY.

He was predeceased by his mother, Charlotte Tomlin, father, Arthur Ellis and step father Laurel Tomlin. He is survived by his love of 12 years, Nattiece Taylor, his daughter, Shamara Ellis and son, Cam'Ron Ellis, his loving brothers and sisters, Laurell Tomlin, Nyisha
Dozier, Keke Grady, Crystal (Eric) Benson, John Ellis, Wakendae Ellis, Mitchell Ellis, Ervin Ellis, Jeanelle (David) Smith, Arthur Ellis. He is also survived by his grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Mar loved music, fishing, race cars, cooking and spending time with his family. He spent much of his time working on cars. He loved the thrill of drag racing and was given the nickname "Black Nitrous." He was a jack of all trades. If there was fixing to do, he was getting it done. He was always able to turn nothing into something. He enjoyed the outdoors, laughing, and getting his hands dirty although he'd always remind you that he cleaned up very well! His laugh was contagious, he always had jokes and loved to reminisce on his younger days.

Mar spent his later years in San Diego, as a stay at home dad and took pride in every moment. There was nothing he wouldn't do for his family and friends. He had a huge heart and will always be remembered for the love he shared.
