Death: Nov., 1986

Waylen L. Lamb of 3604 Yale Ave., Columbia, S.C., died yesterday.

Born in Knobel, Ark., he was a son of Mrs. Louis Green Holcomb and the late Ambrose Lamb, who migrated from Arkansas to Rockford, Ill.

Waylen L. Lamb was the grandson of the late Thomas Grant Lamb and Sarah Elizabeth Taylor Lamb of Clay Co., Ark., who migrated from Vincennes, IN, to Ridley Co., Mo., after Grant Lamb's service during the Spanish American War.

Waylen was special and dear to his aunt and uncle (my parents), Charles A. and Viola Webb Lamb, with whom he stayed at Knobel as a teenager. Grandfather Grant Lamb, who died in 1937, was an Elder in the Missionary Baptist Church and served a church near Knobel.

Waylen served as a U.S. Deputy Marshall in South Carolina for 29 years and also U.S. Army Sergeant First Class during World War II with the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. He was decorated with the Bronze Star, the Army Commendation Medal, and the Purple Heart for wounds he received in the invasion to liberate France.

He was a member of the Shandon Masonic Lodge No. 370, the American Legion and Rosewood Baptist Church.

Services were held at 3 p.m. Sunday at Rosewood Baptist Church, conducted by Pastor Oscar L. Holland. Burial was in Greenlawn Memorial Park.
