Obituary of Francis J. Lamb

Lamb, Francis J., 96, passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home in Linwood, NJ on April 26, 2020. Born in Atlantic City, NJ on November 21, 1923, Fran was raised in Ventnor, NJ, attended St. James grammar school and Atlantic City High School Vocational program in auto mechanics. After high school he joined the U.S. Army, completed training in FT. Bragg and was promoted to Sargent of the Motor Pool during World War II Serving in Hawaii. In later years he became an active member of Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). Fran was predeceased by his wife of 58 years Elaine (Begley) Lamb, his parents John and Ann (Clark) Lamb, and his brothers John and Raymond. He is survived by his sons, Michael of Linwood, NJ, Stephen (Betty) of Winchester, VA, and John (Tamara) of Egg Harbor Township, NJ; grandchildren, Sean Lamb (Laura), Valerie Guinan (Vince), Samantha Lamb, and Jonathan Lamb; and his great grandchildren, Vincent Guinan, Dominic Guinan, Roger Lamb, and Elliott Rosell; and many nieces and nephews. Fran spent his career with the Heinz Company and reluctant to be idle, worked for Bally's Hotel & Casino after retirement. He was also a member of Local 54 hotel union. He was an avid golfer, and an exceptional man of immense warmth, charm, and intelligence, with a passion for history. Always happy and fun to be around, but best of all he was an amazing storyteller and loved to share his life experiences. His love, knowledge, and wonderful stories will live on through his children and grandchildren. His laugh and smile will be sorely missed. Thank you to the amazing nurses and staff at Holy Redeemer Hospice for the love and care you had provided during our time of need. Memorial services will be announced at a later date and at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Somers Point VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars), 500 Bethel Rd, Somers Point, NJ 08244
