William “Bill” Louis Lahmer

William “Bill” Louis Lahmer, 58, was welcomed into Heaven on Saturday, January 12, 2019.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday,  January 19, 2019, at Turning Point Church, 10700 Old Burleson Road, Fort Worth, Texas 76140.

Bill was born to Richard Lawrence Lahmer and Katherine Louise Lahmer on February 27, 1960 in Fort Worth, Texas where he lived his entire life. Bill leaves behind a legacy of kindness, hard work, and a love and dedication to his family and friends who miss him dearly and will celebrate him always. His Christianity was demonstrated every day through faith, hope and love that sustained and strengthened him. Bill was a lifelong resident of Fort Worth, Texas, graduating from Arlington Heights High School in 1978.
Bill was a master in his field of HVACR, and an icon to the industry. His career spans 40 years and began in 1978 as a driver with Tersco (now United Refrigeration) which promoted to store management. He became employed by Koldaire Supply in sales and inventory control and then moved into a position as a service technician with GEEP Mechanical in 1996. In 2002, he became an HVACR instructor for a local vocational school in addition to his position as a service technician. In 2005, he enjoyed the capstone of his career by launching his own HVACR service business, Lahmer Air Conditioning and Heating. His passion for excellence in HVACR service fueled his desire to found Texas Career Center, a local vocational school, specializing in the instruction of HVACR to aspiring students.
Bill is preceded in death by his parents, brothers Frederick Lahmer and Richard Lahmer. Bill is survived by his loving wife Tamra Rene Lahmer, his children William Lawrence Lahmer, Dwayne Daniel Lahmer, Randi Lyn Craig and husband Norman, Cassandra Rene Engel and husband John, Cheree Annette Flowers, Arthur Lee Flowers; his grandchildren Khloe, Cameron, Logan, Nolyn, Collin, Shayla, Valencia, Alexanndria, Christa, Devon, Tristan, Ashanti, Devonte, Ashton, Mason, Anneyah, Omar, Sadie, Aliyah, Penelope and A.J.; sister Lynn Ryan and husband Peter; nephews Chris Ryan and Thomas Lahmer.

Bill you were a wonderful man and an excellent teacher. What you taught me about air conditioning and Refrigeration was priceless as well as what it takes to be a good man. I’ll always look back on you with fond memories and know that because of you I have opened my own business with a dream to achieve.

Thank you for letting me know of Bills passing to heaven. He will be so missed by so many.

#22 Comment By Alex Valencia On February 4, 2020 @ 10:10 am

I am sorry and my dearest condolences to all family. This is absolutely a shock and truly sadden with empathies. He has been on my mind here lately . And actually have been planning to get a hold of him the past few days and was getting ready to send him a text and get some insights from him and discuss things. He last called me back in October to catch up and see how I was doing and coming along so we talked for a bit, and that he would get back with me to check on my progress in the trade. His phone call by far was the greatest ever that day to be able to hear from him and realize that I was not alone in the trade. Thank you so much for the image attached to the email. It’s an honor and a blessing to have met him and (yourself) but also know and have him as my instructor. Absolutely a great and aspiring teacher. My prayers as we follow through this ma’am.
