PFC US Army Korea
-------------------------

In his obituary and on his military plaque the second "a" in Lamar is mistakenly spelled with an "e". This was most likely the result of not making sure that the mortuary who took care of his arrangements dotted the i's and crossed the t's, so to speak. His real middle name was most certainly Lamar. He served as a Military Policeman in the Army while stationed in Korea. Soon after he returned home he was strikened with tuberculosis and spent months in treatment at the VA Hospital in San Fernando, CA. He fathered three children, Charles Lamar Farnum, Thomas Lamar Farnum, Jr., and Jodi Lynn Farnum. His life was not long, but he left many happy memories and we still think of him often.
