Lance Hart Lamb passed away on Saturday, March 5, 2022, at North Kansas City Hospital. He was born in Oceanside, California, on August 14, 1952, to Cecil “Bud” Lamb and Patricia (Hart) Lamb.
Lance graduated from Maryville University. He had several different jobs, but his big career was as a real estate appraiser, which he did for 25 years. He was an avid history buff, especially on Excelsior Springs history. He volunteered and did a lot of work for the Excelsior Springs Museum for several years. Lance also worked election days for the Clay County Election Board for 20 years and he worked at the Excelsior Springs Visitor Center on the weekends.
Lance loved football, especially the Kansas City Chiefs. He was also proud of being the first to bowl a 300 game at Y-Bowl many years ago. He was an avid movie buff and had many different collections of memorabilia and sports collectables. He was also one of the longest members of The Three Stooges Fan Club.
Lance is survived by his wife of 39 years, Patricia A. Lamb, of Excelsior Springs; son, Chaz Lamb, of Belgrade, Montana; mother, Pat Lamb, of Excelsior Springs; brother, Jim (Brenda) Lamb, of Florida; sister, Amy (Randy) Dysart; granddaughters, Emma and Anna Lamb, of Belgrade, Montana; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
A celebration of life will be held on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, at the Barbee Presbyterian Church in Excelsior Springs from 6 to 8 p.m. Come in your Chiefs attire, if you wish. He would have loved that. In lieu of flowers, the family asks you donate to your local animal shelter.
Arrangements in care of Bross & Spidle Funeral Home, Excelsior Springs.
Our Sincere Condolences
It was great working with Lance for the past five plus years. He was a good friend and a great person. He enjoyed life and everyone he knew enjoyed him. He will be missed very much.
So sorry to learn of his passing. You and he will be in my prayers.
Lance will be missed by many people for his gentle manner. All the years that he served as a roving deputy for the Clay County Board of Elections. He was patient, considerate and helpful in serving his community and Clay County.
So sorry Patti. He was a great guy and we will miss seeing him.
Lance will be missed. May God be with your family in this time of your loss. I enjoyed knowing Lance through church and his Mother and Dad. Later working at the museum together. I always looked forward to seeing him when he came into the election pole. He solved many problems.
