Services will be held at 2:00 PM Tuesday at Temple Baptist Church for Mr. Andrew Richard Lear, 49, of Sumrall, MS, who died November 16, 2011, at his residence.
Burial will be in Highland Cemetery.
Mr. Lear was owner of Auto Glass/City Glass Company, and a member of Oloh Baptist Church.
Andy was bigger than any words could describe. He was more than an adoring husband to Lis, a loving dad, wonderful brother, and giving friend. He enjoyed , changed, and molded the lives of all he met. All only for the return of a smile. Andy's contagious, beautiful smile, cheerful laugh, and zest for life were unmatched. The sound of his voice and laughter now echoes through all our hearts, and is now ringing in the halls of heaven.
He was preceded in death by his parents, William Richard Lear and Monica McDermott Lear, and a daughter, Abigail Lear.
Mr. Lear is survived by his wife Lisa Martin Lear; five sons, Thomas Fox-Lear of Hattiesburg, Kyler Gates of Purvis, William Fox-Lear of Hattiesburg, Tucker Gates of Wiggins, and Connor Gates of Sumrall; two daughters, Jessica Lear of Hattiesburg, and Charlotte Lear of Sumrall; two sisters, Carol Smith and Sandra Gregory, both of Newton Abbott, England; and two brothers, Brian and John Lear, both of Newton Abbott, England.
Donations may be made to the Andy Lear Memorial at Community Bank.
Visitation will be 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM Monday, and 8:00 AM until service time on Tuesday at Temple Baptist Church.
