David Henry Lamb

May 6, 1947 — April 27, 2023

Asheboro

 

David Henry Lamb's journey on earth was completed on April 27, 2023, at Davidson Health and Rehab in Lexington, NC. 

David served our country bravely in the US Army including 13 months in the Vietnam war. 

When his military service was complete, he returned to his hometown, Asheboro, NC. He continued his service as a school bus mechanic for Randolph County Public Schools. There he was dedicated to making certain that school children had safe and reliable transportation. David retired after more than 30 years of service. He came out of a brief retirement to work for the Asheboro Zoo maintaining the vehicles there. After several years, he fully retired.

Along his journey, he also shared his skills repairing and maintaining family and friends' vehicles. Many times he would assist stranded travelers who had suffered vehicle troubles on the road. He never expected or accepted reimbursement for his time or expenses. David had a rare sense of service and generosity which touched many people.

His favorite pastimes were square dancing and clogging. He was a member of Asheboro Smiling Squares and Randolph Squares dance clubs. He attended Square Dancing Conventions across the country. David made many lifetime friends during his dancing days. 

You did it your way. Job well done, my brother!

Special thanks to the staff of Alston Brook/Davidson Health and Rehab in Lexington, NC, for their love, caring, and kindness during his failing health.

David was preceded in death by his parents, Carl G. Lamb and Virginia H. Lamb, brother, Carl Lamb Jr. His grandparents, as well as several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
