Elvin Delano Lamb, 80, of Amarillo, TX died September 14, 2020.

Graveside services will be at 2:00 P.M., Wednesday, September 16, 2020, at Llano East Cemetery, with The Rev. Dede Schuler Ballou officiating. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.

Elvin was born on July 21, 1940, in Wheeler County, Texas to Panhandle pioneers; Roy Martin Lamb and Alta Mae Morgan Lamb.

He is survived by his wife Angela Kay Lamb of 56 years, and son Clarence Leroy Lamb. His daughter Heavenly Kay Lamb preceded him in death in 2019.

Throughout his life he was known to many as a master cattleman and farmer in Texas and New Mexico. He loved the land and the crops and livestock that it bore and approached his life of work with determination, kindness, and compassion for the men, women, and animals that were under his purview. He began living the sober life in 1978 and was friend and sponsor to many and always made time to sit and drink a cup of coffee and share the lessons of his life and provide counsel to others. Elvin wore some big boots and a big hat and the space left by his passing is immense and shall be missed.

The family requests friends to wear masks.

  1. My friend, Elvin. I will never forget when I was going through a tough time in my life about 2 years ago; you would come to comfort me and brought some precious gifts that I cherish to let me know you were thinking about me. At that time you were my only friend it seemed.

  2. Angela,
    We are so sorry to hear about Elvin’s passing. We enjoyed all of Elvin’s stories and his help with the cows. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  3. Angela and Clarence I am sorry for your loss of your precious husband and father.
    You have had so much loss. Heavenly was so precious to everyone also. I’m thinking of our family ties with Myrna and Lougene. We lost Anita 4 days before you lost Elvin. We are all sad together in a special way. I pray for the Peace that only Our Father in Heaven can give us!

    I send my deepest condolences to y’all. I had a lot fun memories with Elvin growing up in Bushland. He would always make me laugh with his quick witted jokes. The Thanksgivings and dinners y’all would host brought my family joy. I always appreciated his farming and ranching wisdom that he passed onto Dad. Elvin will dearly missed. Prayers for your family.

  7. Dear Angela,

  8. Will miss him
    Such a neat person
    He said to me one time “take a deep seat and faraway look”
    Sorta like driving a tractor
    But I think about that saying when I ride a horse
    Always loved being around Angela and Elvin Clarence and Heavenly 💖💖💖best times ever

    Was so sorry to hear of Elvin’s passing. He was a gentle and kind man in so many respects.

    When I think of him, I remember his smile and his laughter. He indeed was one of a kind with stories that made you laugh and made you think.

    May you find comfort and strength through the many years of memories filled with his laughter, followed with his smiles. May you always be reminded of his love in the smallest of things…. and may you find peace thru his passing and know that you will see him again.

    Elvin was a blessing to know and an honor to have in our family.

  12. So sorry to hear of Elvins passing. I have told many people that he is the only real cowboy I have ever known. Such a character, he will be missed.

  13. So sorry for your loss Angela and family. May Elvin and Heavenly Kay Rest In Peace in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus Christ. Always enjoyed seeing all of you at Gebo’s, where I worked. 🙏🏽

  14. So sad to read of Elvin’s passing. He and his humor were one of my favorite memories through the years. It seem we would go years without seeing each other and then I’d see him and Angela and we would pick up right where we left off. Such a loss to so many. May your soul rest and be free in eternity.

  15. Angela,
    I am so sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I will miss Elvin’s phone calls. I have many memories of Elvin.
    Love you,
    Mary Sell

  16. Sorry for your loss the restaurant has not been the same since you all did not take up the first table by the door at Young Bloods. Blessing for all. I do my best to keep Charlie and Butch in line. Patt Turner

  17. I am so sorry to hear of Elvin’s passing. Don and I always enjoyed our time together with two of you at the Embers and other places. God bless you and give you strength. All our love.

  18. Our wonderful Elvin was a larger than life and always full of life West Texas farmer, rancher, and cowboy. When he and my dear cousin Angela married, we always said he also married my brother Joe, my sister Judith, and me.
    He was an eloquent raconteur, always entertaining, humble man of the people, whom he loved so much and who returned that love tenfold.
    Yes, this amazing man will be missed❤️
