Gary Alan Lamb, 85, of Rogers City, passed away peacefully on June 21, 2024 at the Medilodge in Rogers City. His wife Barbara “Barb” was faithfully at his side.

Gary was born on October 24, 1938 in Alpena to Harold and G. Alice Lamb.

Gary graduated from Rogers City High School in 1956 and attended Michigan Technological University in Sault Ste. Marie. Gary then sailed on the USS Freighters out of Calcite Harbor. In 1959, Gary married his high school sweetheart and great love, Barbara Ann Klingshirn. Gary worked as a game warden for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources based in Charlevoix. And then he followed in his father’s footsteps and began his career as a successful commercial fisherman. He retired from commercial fishing in 1987 at age 49 and moved to Cape Coral, Florida, where he and Barb began crabbing as a hobby to satisfy his need to be on the water. They later moved back to Rogers City for the remainder of their retirement. Gary and Barb celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary earlier this year.

They had five children: Melissa Keathley of Texas, Vickie Lamb of Montana, Carla (Tim) Schaedig of Marquette, Kristin Casey of Kalamazoo and David (Kari Claus) of Florida. They were also blessed with 10 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.

In addition to his love of fishing, Gary – nicknamed Buck/Buckshot – was an avid outdoorsman and hunter. He also enjoyed golf and spending time with his family, who all shared his adventurous spirit. Gary and Barb traveled often, eventually visiting 49 states and several countries, including Ireland. Gary was loved by his family and all who knew him.’>

His parents, his brother Lynwood and his daughter Melissa predeceased him.

Gary later converted to the Catholic faith and became a member of St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Rogers City.

A funeral service will be held on Saturday, July 20th at 1:30 p.m. at Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery.

A celebration of life will be held immediately following the service at the Schaedig home, 1315 Forest Avenue, Rogers City (near Seagull Point). All family and friends are welcome.

The Beck funeral home is responsible for the organization.
