Daniel Fremont Lamb 

Daniel Fremont Lamb, 77, of South Miami Beach, Florida, died at 1 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 9, 2021, at the Miami Jewish Hospice Center in Miami, Florida.

He was born Aug. 2, 1943, in Maryville, Missouri, to Truman and Willa Lamb. 

Mr. Lamb served in the U.S. Army where, among other assignments and locations, he served as an ambulance driver in Korea. After four years of service, he moved to Hawaii where he attended the University of Hawaii and earned a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy. 

He worked many years for AT&T. Beginning in Hawaii, he relocated to Redwood City, California, and then to Ennis, Texas, where he continued with AT&T until accepting early retirement. From Texas, he moved to Wyoming. He moved there to experience the extreme winters — unlike other places he had lived. But after many severe seasons, he finally had enough of them and made the move to South Miami Beach where he lived the last 10 years. 

Daniel was adventurous and he fearlessly traveled the world. He visited places less traveled. He sought the extremes. His goal was to visit every significant place in the world. He also had a love for writing. He had one book published and another in the works. He enjoyed good discussions on politics and philosophy. Daniel loved dogs. He always had a Terrier, Pomeranian, or Westie who would become his best friend. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Truman Austin Lamb and Willa Lee Lamb; three brothers, David Lamb, Thomas Lamb and Nathan Lamb; one sister Rebecca Sheffield; three brothers-in-law, Dickie Hodge, Clayton Becker and Melvin Sheffield; one nephew, Amoz Lamb; and one great-nephew, Landon Lamb. 

Daniel is survived by his little white Westie, Miss Daisy, who was beside him every day, right up until the end; four brothers, Stephen Lamb and wife Gail of Mena, Arkansas, Michael Lamb and wife Linda of New Concord,  Amos Lamb of New Concord, and Phillip Lamb and partner Donnie Ann of Leitchfield; four sisters, Rachael Lamb Becker of Water Valley, Ruthie Lamb and husband Gerard Johnson of Murray, Mary Jo Farris and husband Buddy Farris of Murray and Martha Lamb and partner Kenny Donelson of Murray; and many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date.
