An Arabi, LA native, Lamarque is a true family man.

He has become a benchmark for success in the automotive, horse racing, and entertainment industries. Notably, this success has been personified by his appointment to Ford Motor Company’s highly esteemed National Dealer Council, winner of Ford Motor Company’s highly acclaimed Chairman’s Award, and recognized as the Louisiana Dealer of the Year. Lamarque’s Mercedes dealership in Mobile, AL is a “Best of the Best” award winner which serves as a stamp of excellence and quality.
In 1988 Ronnie reached the pinnacle of thoroughbred horse racing when his three-year-old colt, Risen Star “Star,” a son of Secretariat competed in the Triple Crown. Star ran third in the Kentucky Derby, however, won the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. “Star” won two of the three jewels of the Triple Crown. “Star” also won the highly acclaimed Eclipse award in 1988 as the three-year-old champion colt.
An entertainer by birth, Lamarque’s first passion was music. As a vocalist for the Nobles, he was inducted into the Louisiana Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and performed at Caesar’s Palace at La Piazza Lounge in Las Vegas. In August of 2018, the world got to enjoy his rich crooner-style voice when he finished number 39 out of 60,000 contestants on America’s Got Talent.
