Randi John Lamb


1959 - 2010 | Obituary Condolences
QUAKER SPRINGS and GREENWICH - Randi John Lamb, 50, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2010, at his home in Quaker Springs.
Born Dec. 17, 1959, at Mary McClellan Hospital in Cambridge, he was the son of George H. and Joan (Conkey) Lamb of Greenwich.
Just before graduating from Greenwich Central School in 1978, Randi moved in with his sister, Joni Henderson, and her husband, Alan. During that time, he helped out on the Henderson Family Dairy Farm in Easton, where he developed his lifelong love for country life, simple pleasures, nature's beauty and open spaces.
Randi later worked at the Greenwich Kmart as manager of the toy department, then was employed for 14 years at Garden Way in Troy. Most recently, he had worked at Xerox Corp. in Albany as print shop manager, where he exceeded company expectations and was named to the "Wall of Fame."
Golf was a passion of Randi's and he was darn good at it. He was often on the links at the crack of dawn on opening day of the season, and didn't leave until sunset on the final closing day, playing as often and as long as he could in between. He was an avid sports fan, and enjoyed watching all sports, especially Dolphins football games (though it was an understatement to say he didn't always enjoy the outcomes). Randi could often be found riding around in his Jeep Wrangler with his baseball cap on backwards; taking long walks in Saratoga National Park with his cherished dog, Cleo; or chatting and texting on his cell phone. He truly appreciated a good home-cooked meal, a cold beer on a hot day and a hot coffee on a cold day; laughing, kidding around with and "zinging" friends and family members; and quiet, reflective moments sitting on his swing in his front yard. Randi is and always will be missed and remembered as forever young by those who loved him.
He was predeceased by his father, George; and stepmother, Edna (Wallace Brophy) Lamb.
Survivors include his two children, Geremy J. Lamb of Coral Springs, Fla., and Shannon A. Lamb of Boynton Beach, Fla.; and his former wife, Tonya Goggin, also of Florida. He was the loving son of Terry and Joan (Conkey) Fleming of Greenwich; little brother to Joni (Alan "Mister") Henderson of Easton and Luewona (Paul) Scalard of New Windsor; stepbrother to Diane (Joe) DiSarno of Saratoga, Peter (Debbie) Brophy, Sue Nolan and Tim (Stacey) Brophy, all of Greenwich. He is also survived by godparents, John CoFrancisco of Middle Falls and Nancy Spiezio of Greenwich; special friend, Stephanie Nickloff and family; devoted friends, John Henley of Greenwich, Royce and Mary Jo Ball of Quaker Springs; his former in-laws, Rick and Shirley Goggin; his faithful dog, Cleo; and a large extended family whom he loved and who loved him dearly.
Friends and family may call from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 29, 2010, at Flynn Bros. Inc. Funeral Home, 80 Main St., Greenwich.
A memorial service will follow at 6 p.m. at the funeral home with Paul Petrowski officiating.
Memorials can be made in Randi's memory to the Adirondack Save-a-Stray in Corinth; or to the 's Greenwich " ."
The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to General Schuyler Emergency Squad for their quick, professional response, and to Saratoga Hospital and its staff members, Dr. Brooks and emergency room nurses Mary and Kathleen, for their care, kindness and compassion at the time of our loss.
