David J. Lamb, 71, of Dilworth, MN, passed away on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, at Sanford on Broadway, Fargo, ND. David was born in Fargo, ND, on February 19, 1952, to Floyd and JoAnn (Griffin) Lamb. He grew up and attended elementary school in Glyndon, MN, and later moved to Dilworth, where he graduated from high school. Following high school, David attended MSUM where he continued his education and played football. David began his career with the City of Moorhead where he enjoyed over 40 years until retirement. On May 29, 1987, David married Lindell Hanson. Together they made their home in Dilworth. Over the years, David took pride in serving the community as a volunteer fireman in Dilworth, where he also served as fire chief for two terms. For many years, David could be found bartending on Friday nights at Mills Lounge in Dilworth. He enjoyed the social aspect of connecting with the community.
