Clarence Lamar Polly, age 68, Chamblee, died May 20, 2019. He was born in Cleveland, Tennessee on February 20, 1951. Mr. Polly was a lover of Harley Davidson motorcycles, history, cats, Scotland and his work. He was a true gentleman in a big way. Lamar was the former lead engineer at First Presbyterian Church in Marietta. After a spinal cord injury 20 years ago, Lamar reinvented his life. He built a hand controlled Harley Davidson motorcycle in his den. With friend and colleague, Carolyn Phillips, Lamar founded the organization ReBoot through which he became a certified Microsoft Refurbisher and developed a nationally recognized model program to recycle and rebuild computers for persons with disabilities. Lamar recently became manager of the power wheelchair shop at FODAC using his mechanical engineering skills to rebuild and adapt donated power wheelchairs. Lamar had the special ability to patiently teach and build confidence in those he worked with. He was a memorable character with a beard; a strong, quiet, dedicated man of his word whose grit and determination drove him to always want to do more. He never let his physical challenges limit his work or his love. He was preceded in death by his father, Arthur Lee Polly; mother, Nannie Welch and sister, Brenda Polly. He leaves his beloved wife and teammate, Patricia Hewitt; son and daughter-in-law, Bryan and Morgan Polly and grandson, Elijah Oaks Polly, Ft. Worth, TX; dear friends: Grover and Diana Richardson and family, and Dr. Dorothy Karandanis; brothers: Jack Polly, Toccoa, GA and Jim Polly, Chattanooga,TN; beloved mother-in-law, Elizabeth Hewitt. The family wishes thank the teams at Piedmont Hospital and Shepherd Center. Fischer Funeral Care, Atlanta (678) 514-1000.

It was a pleasure to work with Lamar for the past 18 years. He was a very knowledgeable and generous man. He helped me get back on my feet at a very challenging time in my life. It was no accident that we met and worked together all these years. He was a gentle giant and still is a beautiful spirit that has gone on to new adventures now free from the restrictions of this world. Hope to join you one day. Thanks for being You.

I have known Lamar for 15 plus years. As a volunteer at the organization that he co-founded, I developed a huge respect for his abilities, his courtesy, and his generosity and willingness to pass his knowledge on to the volunteer staff. It was a happy time working under his leadership, where we created high quality refurbished computers that benefited many. He set the tone in the computer lab by respecting and encouraging all who came to volunteer, no matter what their computer skills were. He was able to create an organization where people wanted to work and remained for years even though none were paid! My sincerest sympathy goes out to his wife Pat, his family, and to his friends.

Lamar was a great guy & it was always a pleasure to see him rolling up.He loved to help folks in any way that he could,and has helped our club and our Brothers in many different ways ,from donations to just a simple phone call of encouragement when needed. The world will certainly be a lesser place without Lamar in it . Sincere condolences & Deepest sympathies to Pat & the family,as well as friends & Brothers. C.C.F.F.C.C.
