Brien D. Lamkins, 79, of Suffield, beloved husband of Janice (Sladyk) Lamkins, passed away on Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2021.

Born July 7, 1942, in Hartford, son of the late Clifford and Dorothy (Walsh) Lamkins. Brien was a lifelong resident of Suffield. He proudly served with the U.S. Navy during the Cuban Crisis, and was an active member of the American Legion Post 133. He worked over 30 years for the state of Connecticut at the Enfield Correctional Institution before retiring. Brien was an avid golfer, a man who could tell a good joke; he lived life to the fullest, but his greatest pleasure in life was spending time with family and friends.
