Jerry passed on May 19, 2019, at the age of 71 in Ivins, Utah. He was born July 18, 1947, to James Elijah and Beverly D. Cummings Lamb in Heber City, Utah, where he spent his early years.
After high school Jerry served in the Army in the Vietnam War. This experience had a lasting effect on him. Jerry worked throughout the West in the oilfields and heavy construction, primarily driving truck.
He married Roberta Broadhead and they had two children, Kristy and Cody, as well as two stepchildren, Lisa and Chad Andrus (deceased), whom he loved as his own. They were later divorced.
Jerry married his true soulmate Kary Dee Nicoletti and they were happily together until Kary’s death in 2017. Shortly after Kary’s passing Jerry moved to Washington, Utah, to be closer to his family. He visited his older brother Jim every single day. It was their way of checking on each other. Those visits will be deeply missed.
Jerry was a man of few words, but he had the biggest heart. He enjoyed the open spaces of the West, camping, hunting, fishing and being in the mountains.
Jerry is survived by his daughter Kristy (Travis) Rawlinson, Salina Utah; son Cody Lamb, Evanston Wyoming; brother James L. Lamb, Washington, Utah; sisters Patsy Casper, Draper, Utah, Debbie (Pete) Field, Ivins, Utah. He was preceded in death by his parents; stepfather June Roberts; wife Kary; and brother Ren.
Jerry was cremated at his request.
- Graveside services will be held on Saturday, June 8, at 11 a.m. at the Cedar Fort Cemetery, Cedar Fort, Utah.
