Charles A. "Chicky" Lamb, 69
On Thursday, April 5, 2012, Charles A. Lamb passed away after a brief period of declining health.
Chicky was born December 9, 1942 in Worcester to Charles J. and Esther (Brash) Lamb. Although he contracted polio at nine months of age; he defied the odds and went on to live a meaningful and inspiring life. Making the most of each and every day, Chicky could often be found outdoors with his shades on catching rays, and maybe driving a little too fast in his motorized wheelchair. Material possessions were not important to Chick. His idea of wealth was family, friends, good conversation, and a beautiful day. He was also a music lover and enjoyed going to concerts. Always a ladies man, Chicky was at his best when in company of beautiful women. His dry sense of humor and carefree attitude could always bring a smile during the most unexpected times. His optimism will always be remembered by those who knew and loved him.
He leaves his loving family, his sister Marjorie Burlingame and her husband Kenyon, his nephew James and niece, Christine all of Charlton. Chick’s older sister Gloria passed in 1960, and he is also survived by her daughter Laura Favreau.
At his request, the funeral service was private. Chicky’s family wishes to extend their gratitude to all those who helped make his life brighter by being there for him.
“Rest easy now Chick, you were much loved.”
An honest man now lies at rest
As e’er God with his image blest;
The friend of man, the friend of truth,
The friend of age, and guide of youth:
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm’d,
Few heads with knowledge so inform’d :
If there’s another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.
The Robert J. Miller-Charlton Funeral Home, 175 Old Worcester Rd., assisted Chick’y family with arrangements.
