Kenneth George Lamb, 74, a St. James City resident, formerly of Boston, passed away Sunday, April 20, 2014. He was born June 3, 1939, in Boston, to Kenneth and Maude Lamb, now deceased.

He loved the outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved the freedom he felt when he rode his Harley. He joined the Navy in 1957, was assigned to the U.S.S. Courtney, a destroyer escort, for the next two years. He also served on the U.S.S. Rook before discharge. He was a member of the Pine Island V.F.W. and the American Legion Riders. He was a longtime truck driver, and belonged to the Teamsters Local - 313.

As a gun enthusiast, he joined the NRA. He felt very strongly about his Second Amendment rights.

He leaves his sons, Kenneth G. Lamb Jr. of Milford, Conn., Michael S. Lamb and Mark K. Lamb of Washington state; a daughter, Kimberly Lamb-Tate of Tennessee; his sisters, E. Beverly (Richard) Williams, Mildred (Michael) Young, Gale (Dan) Morency, Cheryl (Dan) Wolfson, Noreen (Maurice) Ward and a brother William (Susan) Lamb; as well as many nieces and nephews and one grandson.

He was preceed in death by his parents, Kenneth H. Lamb and Maude Mildred Johnson Lamb Colangelo; his brothers, Michael F. Colangelo, Charles and Thomas Hastings; and sister, Susan Hastings Dupres.

His sister Mildred Young and his niece Cathleen Burgess, cared for him in his final days, with the wonderful staff at Hope Hospice. We thank them for their loving, caring attitudes and compassionate ways. We would also like to thank the staff at the KOA Campground on Pine Island for its help and support during his stay there. All of his fellow campers were always mindful of his needs and always willing to help. You took him to doctors appointments, grocery shopping, put his shed together for him, power washed his camper, fed him and provided numerous acts of kindness.

Christ said, "We express love for our fellowmen by serving them." We would also like to thank the Mullins Memorial Funeral Home owners, Shannon and Sheila, and staff of Cape Coral. They were all very sensitive to our feelings and emotional needs, making out long distance funeral arrangements much easier on the family than it would otherwise have been.

Friends are invited to send condolences via the on-line guest book which can be found at

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
