Obituary of Donald Allen Lamb
Donald +óGé¼+ôWiser+óGé¼-¥ Lamb, 77, of Cocoa, Florida, previously of Chateauguay, Millerton, and Brainardsville NY, passed peacefully at Wuesthoff Medical Center this week after a courageous battle with lung cancer.
Donald attended school at Chateaugay and worked for the State of New York at Wassaic State School, now known as Taconic DDSO, until he was injured in 1984. Donald enjoyed being in the outdoors. He hunted until he could not anymore due to his disability, and he moved to Florida when the winters became too much in upstate NY. He loved to fish and take pictures of the wildlife whenever he could. He made friends wherever he went with his quick wit and smile. In his retirement he enjoyed chatting with friends on the computer, where he was known as +óGé¼+ôWiser+óGé¼-¥, listening to music, and fishing in the ocean.
He is survived by his children, James H. Lamb, Dorothy A. Gratton, Darren Schrader, Leslie Lamb Schrader-Fagnan, and Donald Jay Lamb; his brothers and sister in-laws, John and Sarah Lamb of Tifton GA, and Bill and Marge Lamb of Williamson NY; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
He is predeceased by his father, James Howard Lamb, and mother, Grizelda Melissa (Willis), along with his brothers, William, George, Howard, Arthur, and Lloyd.
He will be sorely missed by his friends and family.There will be no local services at this time, but when the family can get together, Donald+óGé¼Gäós ashes will be laid to rest in Chateauguay near his father, mother, and brother.
