Calvin T. Lamb

Marion - Calvin T. Lamb, age 84 of Waldo, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at Marion General Hospital.

Calvin was born on March 16, 1936 to the late Alfred and Francis (Kelly) Lamb in Marion, Ohio. He was a graduate from Harding High School.

Calvin was preceded in death by his parents; his daughter: Debra Lamb; his sons: Michael Lamb and Jamie Lamb; his brother: Albert "Bud" Lamb; and his wife: Cindy (Lust) Lamb.

Calvin was a local legend and businessman, who owned and operated multiple businesses throughout Marion including Cal's Foodland, Cal's Party Store, Cal's Pleasin Pizza and Marion Trotters Club.

Calvin was an animal lover, avid Buckeye fan and an enthusiast of harness horse racing and had a love and enjoyment for harness racing that started over 50 years ago.

One of Calvin's proudest accomplishments was being a father. His children, Tim Lamb, Jeff (Kim) Lamb, Cris Lamb, Jodi Lamb and Sarah (Anthony) Scarberry called him their superhero, and even as adults, still see him that way. Calvin is also survived by his step sons: Traig Jones and Ryne Jones; 13 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild; sister: Sis Osborne; sister-in-law: Kay Lamb; life partner: Rebecca Smith; and his many pets.

The world has lost a Friend and Protector of the innocent and the helpless, a strong, yet compassionate man. Cal was touched by people's situations and the plight of animals. There is no doubt he was a hero to many. The impact he made in the lives of countless people and animals cannot be measured; we only know they were better off because he lived. His influence is seen in the lives of his family and loved ones as he modeled love and kindness to them. He made a difference. He made a difference to us. We are honored to have had the gift of his friendship and his encouragement. A tree will be planted at Homeless to Home in a very special place and a ceremony scheduled to dedicate it, representing Cal's steadfast spirit of compassion.We pray comfort for his family and for Becky who said it well - there will never be another Cal Lamb. We are missing him with all of you.

Cal, I'm so glad I got to spend time with you in May, even though it was under very sad circumstances--the passing of my brother Chuckie. You were truly like an angel, helping him in any way you could, bringing him any kind of food you thought he would be able to keep down--pudding, baby food, creamsicles. You didn't give up. My niece and nephew and I could not have handled taking care of him without your love and support. But that's who you are, Cal. Your whole life was filled with taking care of and helping people out in their times of need. You were an angel on earth, and now you will be a Guardian Angel, out there in the universe. We'll feel your love and your spirit but we will always miss seeing your smile. Eternal love,

To the family of Cal Lamb.There is no way a couple paragraphs could do justice to Cal.He was a legend in Marion Ohio.At one time Dinos Bar and Drive Thru was the number 1 volume account in the 4 county area and that included every account that Delmar Distributing had to include close to 500 licensed establishments.He was also a friend in addition to a very valued account.I grew up knowing him and always had the utmost respect for him.When I was a salesrep for Budweiser I always visited him as often as I could as both a business account but more so as a friend.He will be sorely missed by friends and family.He had a huge heart for both people and animals.May he rest in peace.
