Tracy Reed Lamb age 34, died March 24, 2022 at his home in Helena, a victim of accidental overdose. Tracy was born May 3, 1987 in Whitefish, MT to Reed and Connie Lamb. As third and last child, he was the tie breaker, joining sister Britten and brother Will. He grew up in Kalispell, attended Stillwater Christian School, and graduated from home school in 2006. He was a student at the Helena College of Technology at the time of his death, just weeks from completing his training to be an aircraft mechanic, and had already received his airframe certification.
Tracy was a mechanic by nature, although his early attempts consisted mostly of lifting, lowering and loudening his own vehicles. The whole street knew when he came home for the night—our neighborhood watch program. His many outdoor jobs included building, landscaping, and fencing, but he mostly worked as an auto mechanic. When he wasn’t working on his own projects, or helping others with theirs, he enjoyed fishing and golf. His community service was not through an organization, it was the natural product of his generous heart. Like his dad, he could fix or build almost anything. So it was not surprising that in his 30’s, he decided to become an aircraft mechanic, training at the same school in Helena his dad had.
Though he denied being a people person, Tracy was thoughtful by nature and well liked. He brought a steady supply of friends to our dinner table, and sometimes to live, in our home. Tracy was preceded in death by his grandmother, Violet Neighbors, and grandfather Del Lamb. His survivors are parents, Reed and Connie Lamb, sister Britten (Luke) Carlson, brother Will (Emily) Lamb and nieces Gabrielle, Renata, and Jules. He is also survived by grandparents Patricia Lamb and Bill Neighbors, many cousins and a multitude of friends. Tracy put his trust in Christ as a young boy, drifted for a time, but God restored his faith in a powerful way, and now has called him home. We are sure he would invite you to live in that home too. Memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. April 9, 2022 at Glacier International Airport, big blue hangar. Enter at Gate 7, north of the main terminal, check in required.
