Ben S. Lamb: Feb. 12, 1995 – Dec. 12, 2019



Ben Steven “Jammer” Lamb, 24, of Oak Harbor, died suddenly on Dec. 12, 2019, from an overdose, after an 11-year battle with addiction.

He is survived by his parents, Laurie and Robert Croan, Margaret Davis and Patrick Lamb; daughter Harper Lamb and her mother, Kaitlee Pate; siblings Joshua, Alicia Rose and Aleesha Marie; and many aunts, uncles and nieces. His brother, Timothy C. Earl “TC” Davis, preceded him in death.

Ben was a life-long resident of Oak Harbor, Wash., born in Anacortes, Wash., Feb. 12, 1995. He attended school in Oak Harbor and participated in sports and in the Oak Harbor Middle School Choir.

Often known for his clowning around by his classmates and teachers, Ben was the kid in class who made everyone laugh and was usually the source of morning antics that even made the teachers smile. Ben completed his education through Greenhill School in Chehalis, Wash., and was working on technician classes for automotive engine repair.

Ben was a child raised by our village. He struggled each day with many health issues and frequently found himself in trouble, sometimes angered people, but taken in by so many others. He was loved for his wit and humor and will be terribly missed by his family, friends and all who knew and worked with him.

A service will be held to celebrate Ben’s life at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2020 (his birthday), at Wallin Funeral Home. A reception will follow.
