Pavilion ~ William L. Lamb, age 45, passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 26, 2015 at Strong Memorial Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.

     Will was born February 4, 1970 in Batavia, a son of Rosemary Smith and the late Earl William Lamb.

     Will had exceptional math skills and enjoyed working with his hands to putter and build things.  He also had the incredible gift to make everyone laugh.  He was quick to joke, poke fun when the chance arose and reminisce about the good times from the past.  His positive attitude was infectious.  His glass was always half full, never empty.  Spending time with family and friends was Will's greatest joy.  We will miss him dearly. Gone from this earth, but never from our hearts.

     "The Golden Gates stood open, God saw you needed rest, His garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best."

     Will is survived by his loving wife of 14 years, Mardell Parmenter Lamb; children, Tiffany Rose of Spencerport and William II at home; his mother, Rosemary Penepent of Stafford; step-children, Vincent Longhany and Liana Longhany; step-sisters and brother, Christine Cannon of Corfu, Cheryl Carey of Batavia and Nicholas Carey of FL; mother-in-law, Mary L. Cordes; brothers-in-law, Tom Parmenter and Tim (Denise) Parmenter; best friend, Mark Dickes of Pavilion; his crazy cat, "Silly Girl", along with many nieces and nephews.

     In addition to his father, he was predeceased by his step-father, Gerald Carey.

     There are no prior calling hours and services will be announced at a later date.

     In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to Will's family at P.O. Box 62, Pavilion, N.Y. 14525.
