Dems Mourn Key Volunteer
Livingston County Democrats were saddened to learn this week of the death of one of their key volunteers, Michael Lamb.
If you got a yard sign from our office during the 2020 campaign, chances are Michael Lamb was there to help you. He worked in the office five or six days a week from July on through the election.
“Mike loved to talk politics and was very well informed. He was fun to be around and always was eager to learn new tasks that helped our party do so well in 2020. We will miss him greatly,” said Judy Daubenmier, party chair.
Michael, age 60, died March 27, 2021, at his home in Howell from heart failure.
Michael was born on May 31, 1960, to John Michael and Louise (Erdman) Lamb in Joliet, Illinois. He is survived by his father, John of Lockport, Illinois; his loving wife, Holly Ward Lamb, and one son, Robert James of Howell, Michigan; two brothers, Kevin of New York, New York, and Sean (Irene) of West Chicago, Illinois, and one sister Justine of Lockport, Illinois. He was preceded in death by his mother, Louise Lamb in 2015.
Michael strongly believed in education. He earned Masters Degrees in Economics from Indiana State University, Business Administration from Lewis University, and Information and Library Science from Wayne State University.
Besides volunteering with Livingston County Democrats, he also was a volunteer at the Salvation Army. He was passionate about politics, the Chicago White Sox, and the music of Bruce Springsteen. However, everything paled in comparison to his love for and devotion to his family. He considered being a father his greatest accomplishment.
Visitation will be at MacDonald's Funeral Home, Howell, MI on Thursday, April 1, from 2 to 4 p.m., with memorial service immediately following.
Memorial contributions are suggested in Michael's name to the Livingston Diversity Council (https://www.livingstondiversity.org/donate), P.O. Box 202, Howell, Michigan 48844.
Michael will be honored as Livingston Dems’ Volunteer of the Year at our annual Winans event, to be held June 11 this year.
