Richard Paul Hemar Obituary
July 2, 1944 - February 12, 2016 Richard Hemar, 71, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 12, 2016 at his home in Calabasas, California. He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Lynn Hemar; brother Peter Hemar; son Ryan Hemar; daughters Kimberly Hemar and Shelley Limpert; and granddaughters Ava and Penelope Limpert. Born in Warsaw, Poland, he was the eldest son of Henry and Alice Hemar. The perilous circumstances of his birth would prove to be the initial instance of a recurring theme that would persist his entire life: survival and perseverance, against all odds. He was eternally indestructible. After graduating from UCLA law school, he went on to found the law firm of Hemar, Rousso & Heald, LLP, which he continued to manage throughout his life. Richard enjoyed traveling, playing tennis, and skiing. He was also an avid fan of the Los Angeles Lakers. Richard was revered by all who knew him, which is evidenced by the enduring bond of his lifelong friendships, the immeasurable love of his family, and the profound respect of his colleagues. He will be missed, but his broad influence and unyielding strength will remain permanently etched in all of our lives.
