James (Jim) Wilbur Lamb passed away on Aug. 30, 2023, after a short and sudden illness. He was 69. Jim had been living in Colorado Springs, CO.
He is missed by his children, Amanda (Patrick) Mahoney and Joseph (Anna) Lamb; his grandchildren, Parker and Nolan Mahoney; and his sisters, Kristen (Jack) Ayer and Nancy (Gary) Hallock.
Jim is preceded in death by his wife, Renée Panipinto Lamb, and his parents, Wilbur and Janet.
Jim lived a life full of service to others through his career in the restaurant industry, in which he led hundreds of individuals across diverse backgrounds to achieve their best while ensuring people had a great time. A native of Cazenovia, Jim lived across the United States since he graduated high school, including Southern California, Dallas, Florida, Rochester, N.Y., and Cincinnati. Along the way, he made countless friends who will miss him dearly. Many of us take some solace in the fact that Jim and Renée are together again.
The family invites all who knew and loved Jim to join them to gather, reminisce and cherish fond memories at a casual celebration of life on Nov. 11, 2023, at 1 p.m. at Madison County Distillery (2412 Route 20, Cazenovia.)
