With much sadness and great pride, we said goodbye to LaMar Clark Nagle on Sunday, March 18, 2018. He was 91.
LaMar was born August 21, 1926 in Garfield, UT to Clark and Alene Nagle. He attended South High School where he was known as one of the best fullbacks in the region, and where he met the love of his life, Lenore Strong. After high school, he received a scholarship to the University of Utah. Though he left football for education, he married Lenore. LaMar graduated from the University of Utah in 1950, then returned to the U to earn a master’s degree in Education Administration. He taught at Highland High School where he influenced and inspired thousands of students during his 33 year career. He was an English teacher, the school’s sports photographer, and the stage crew and auditorium supervisor, later, he designed and directed the Highland High Media Center.
LaMar and Lenore lived in Holladay where they raised a family of six children, which became an extended family of 28 (38 with in-laws). LaMar was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He led a life of integrity, honesty and dignity, and he was a lifelong role model for his family. LaMar is survived by Lenore, his beautiful wife of 69 years; his sons Jon (Rhonda), Bret, and Randy (Paula); his daughters Julianne, Amy (Anthony), and Kara (Al); 15 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren; and his brother Gary.
