I had the privilege of working with LaMar while I was Secretary of the Emery County Travel Bureau and I was always impressed by his integrity, knowledge and his ability to look at a problem and come up with a solution.
I was very pleased that the Progress Editor took time to write such a nice article about him. The remarks she made were valid and LaMar should be congratulated by every citizen of Emery County for doing such a fine job for so many years. You don't hold a position of such importance for 36 years without being a very special person and working hard to keep things running smoothly.
LaMar was always a big Green River booster, we see him around town a lot and he did all he could to help us with our problems. I don't know Mr. Funk at all but I do know he has big shoes to fill, and I wish him the best in doing so, hopefully he will continue with some of the things that made LaMar a great sheriff for so many years.
So LaMar Thank You for a job well done, we will miss you as Sheriff but I am sure you will be around somewhere working for the good of Emery County, because that's the kind of guy you are.
