MR. DONALD RUSSELL LAMB of London April 30, 1956 - November 28, 2017 It is with deep sadness that Don's family announces his passing on November 28, 2017 at the age of 61, after a prolonged battle with Diabetes and Kidney Disease. He leaves behind to mourn his loving partner Jackie Curran, children Julie and Jeffrey (their mother Mary), his mother Beth, brother David (Teresa Tsuji) and sisters Debra (Rebecca Hunter) and Donna Cockburn (Dirk). Predeceased by his father Alvin (2000) and brother Brian (1960). Born April 30, 1956 in Burk's Falls, Ontario he grew up in the hockey arenas of Winnipeg, Moose Jaw and Toronto playing the game he loved and excelled at. He spent many summers at Hockey Opportunity Camp on Eagle Lake as an instructor and then as hockey director. After his playing days, he refereed in the OHL. Don had a varied career first as an RCMP officer in northern Alberta then in the financial world with the Beneficial Finance Company. He spent the last several years running his own business (Legal Support Services) as a paralegal in London, Ontario. We will miss his sense of humour, kindness, story-telling and his Facebook rants.
