In Memoriam – Andy Lamb (Oct 29, 1931 – May 9, 2020)

We are saddened to announce the passing of Harold Andrew (Andy) Lamb at the age of 88 in Walkerton, Ontario.

Andy was born in Walkerton and was one of the original members of Citroën Autoclub Canada. He and his two sons Garret and Greg worked tirelessly for many years to get the Club on its feet and communicate with members.

Andy was a regular attendee at most Club events. No mean feat as Toronto is a 2-1/2 hour drive from Walkerton. If Greg was there, usually so was Andy. (Garret took a teaching position in Czechoslovakia, where he remains to this day). Andy, Greg, and Fred Kossecki were the ones who organized a major Fall meeting in Kingston back in 2003, where Citroën Autoclub Canada, Ottawa Citroën Club and members from Quebec converged for a fun weekend gettogether.

Predeceased by his wife Eileen, nee Dietz (in 2012), parents Roy and Jessie Lamb, brother John (Helen) and Arthur (Daisy), sister Ellen (Jim), brother in law Allan, sister in law Doris. Survived by sons Garret and Gregory, brother Gordon and Brothers in law Mervyn and John. Andy passed away at home, of heart failure, in the same house he had lived in for 60 years.

Andy was a long time mechanic in the Walkerton and Hanover area who operated Lamb’s Service for over 40 years. He was also a proud member of Alcoholics Anonymous celebrating 50 years of sobriety in January of this year.

Due to the Covid-19 situation Andy has been cremated and a Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.

UPDATE — Aug. 24, 2021: There will be a Celebration of Life for Andy on Saturday September 4 from 2-4 pm at the Hanover Knights of Columbus Hall. (963 Bruce Rd 4, Hanover ON. At tee of Bruce Rd 22.).

  1. I knew Andy for many years. He was a true gentleman and very much an asset to the Citroen society. We will truly miss him.
