Rev Lamb was born on June 5, 1937 and passed away on Friday, January 12, 2018.

Rev Lamb was a resident of Florida at the time of passing.

He earned a licentiate in sacred theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome in 1966, and in 1974, completed a doctorate in theology at the Westfalsche Wilhems University in Munster, Germany.

A fitting conclusion to a life dedicated to education and a teaching career of 45 years, Lamb died in the company of two graduate students, who were keeping a prayer vigil at his bedside. He co-founded the Society for Catholic Liturgy in 1995, and the Academy for Catholic Theology in 2007.
