LeMar A., son of Andrew and Magdalena (Dockter) Haas was born April 16, 1934 on the family homestead northwest of Venturia. This homestead originated in 1886. He attended country school and worked on the family farm. In the early 1950’s, he worked with the Works Progress Administration at Riverdale, ND building the Garrison Dam. He returned home and farmed throughout his continued W.P.A. commitment.
LeMar was united in marriage to Jean Fischer on February 7, 1958 in Eureka Baptist Church at Eureka, SD. They made their home on his family’s homestead where they raised small grains and livestock. In 2014, LeMar semi-retired and rented his land out and sold his cattle.
LeMar enjoyed farming and his horses. He was very appreciative of vintage muscle cars and convertibles. Over the years, he was a faithful men’s breakfast attendee at Venturia Baptist Church.
He was a member of Venturia Baptist Church and a past member of McIntosh County Hospital Board.
