Born Feb. 3, 1929, in South Portland, Maine, he was a son of the late John D. and Winifred Sims Lamers.

Mr. Lamers was an optician. He lived most of his adult life on his farm in Bealeton, where he enjoyed the serenity of nature and the peace and quiet of his surroundings. He was an outdoorsman and a hard worker. He also served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Ethel Johnson Lamers. He is survived by a brother, John Lamers of Philadelphia; and two sisters, Betty Shade of Berlin, Md., and Marion Pronk of Locust Grove. He is also survived by 10 nieces and nephews, who lovingly remember being driven around his farm on a tractor and fishing in his pond.

A funeral for Mr. Lamers will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, at Johnson Funeral Home, Locust Grove, with visitation one hour prior to the service. The Rev. Amos Healy will officiate. Interment with military honors will follow at Culpeper National Cemetery.
