A well-respected farmer, he bravely redressed wrongs. He sold Dekalb seed corn from 1948 into the early 1950's and drove school buses beginning in 1953. He served as magistrate of Breckinridge County for a total of twelve years, first from 1950 until 1958 (two terms) and again from 1970 to 1974. He worked for the Kentucky Department of Highways in the late 1950's and early 1960's as a heavy equipment operator and drove a road grader. In 1968, he earned a license to pilot a single engine private aircraft and shortly afterward purchased a Cessna 150 airplane. Flying became his favorite pastime. LaMar died unexpectedly at his home of an apparent heart attack. With over 600 visitors and over 200 flower arrangements, Cloverport funeral director Harry Dhonau described the visitation as one of the largest in Cloverport's history. His funeral was conducted at St. Rose Catholic Church in Cloverport.
