Mr. Lamar Anthony Jennings entered into eternal rest on Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022, at his home. He was born to the parentage of the late Ms. Fannie Pearl Jennings and Mr. Jimmy Lee Smith on Dec. 14, 1958 in Lanett.

When he was about 7 years old his mother moved to a community known as Water Works, where he enjoyed walking to the creek, going swimming, fishing, and hunting. He also enjoyed running around and playing basketball with his friends.

He attended Lanier High School and later graduated from West Point High School. He held many jobs, including working at The Hot Spot in West Point, Ga, but the most important was helping in the care of his mother until her passing.
