John C. Lamb, 97, of Lancaster, passed away peacefully in the comfort of his home at The Glen at Willow Valley. Born on September 23, 1923, in Philadelphia, John was the son of the late John and Bertha (Boheringer) Lamb. He shared matrimony with Lois (Kunkel) Lamb until her passing in January of 2005.

A proud United States Army Veteran, John honorably served during World War II as a PFC apart of the 54th Engineer Maintenance Company. Following his service to our country, John worked for Philadelphia Electric Company for 33 years until his retirement in 1988. He enjoyed reading and visiting friends in his spare time.

John is survived by a son: Daniel Lamb; a daughter: Grace Sauerwald wife of Lee; four grandchildren: Dan, Ben, Carl, and Danielle; as well as his dear friend: Philip Dongre and children: Jessica and James Dongre.

I recall John as a gentle soul, God bless him. He and Lois were my landlords on Rhawn St. in Phila back in 1956,1957.  Fond memories of our good friends, sorry to have lost touch. Would love to hear from his son or daughter, might they have old pictures from “back in the day”? Lois and I worked together at Bell. Marie Nielsen
