Mitchell J. Lamb, Jr., age 44, of Cambridge died August 31, 2021 at home. Celebration of Life will be held from 5:00-8:00 PM on Thursday, September 16th at the Isanti VFW, 410 Railroad Ave SE, Isanti.
Mitchell J. Lamb, Jr. was born on November 20, 1976, in Coon Rapids to Mitchell and Constance (Hentz) Lamb. He was raised in Isanti and graduated from Cambridge-Isanti High School. Mitch died on August 31, 2021, peacefully in his sleep at his home in Cambridge. Mitch will be remembered for his larger than life presence, the teddy bear with a soft heart for all in need. He willingly shared his sense of humor, always ready with a joke to unite people in laughter, and a passion for playing bass guitars. The only things more important were his love for his kids, Alexis and Mason and his dog Disco. Remember him with his big smile, always standing, and conjuring up the next joke. We will miss you, Mitch, may your soul live in peace and happiness, you are forever loved and will be deeply missed.
He is survived by his children Alexis and Mason Lamb; Mother, Connie and stepfather, Dan Dayton; brother Matt (Gina) Lamb; nieces and nephew, Eponine, Dulcia and Memphis; his dog, Disco; and by many other relatives and friends.
Sandy and Nate Stengel says
I remember when we first met Mitch. Ryan had told us Mitch wasn’t allowed in anyone’s yard because he was a trouble maker. Nate told him he could hang out at our place if he could behave or he would kick his butt. Matt was with Mitch. (Almost always). I believe it was Matt who went home and told his Dad what Nate said. It wasn’t long after that when Mitch Sr. Came over to tell Nate he better not touch his kid. It was kind of funny because Nate would never kick his butt or any other kid. We never had issues with Mitch, and if he acted up, he would be reminded if he wanted to hang out at our house, he would follow our rules or go home.
Never had a problem. Ryan and Mitch met when they were about 7yrs old. They have hung out ever since. We’re going to miss Mitch, especially his mischievous laugh! He was a part of our family, even though we didn’t see him much once he was an adult!
Miss you and love you❤️

Going old school here. Mitch, Matt, Carrie, Amy, my brother Derrick and I all grew up on the same street together. Summer’s were filled with forts & gun fights in the cornfield behind our homes, baseball in the middle of the street(we lived on a cul-de-sac), bike rides everywhere, the elementary school play ground till the 9pm siren, and many other shenanigans. Times were hard for all of us, but we always had each other, made a difficult time much more bearable. Derrick and I send our deepest condolences to Connie, Matt and the entire Lamb family. Prayers for peace, love and understanding during this most difficult time.

I feel so lucky to have met Mitch and to have been close to him over the past year. Such a colorful, lovable, hilarious, sweet, smart, talented guy. His love for his kids, family, and his sweet Disco pup were unmatched. Mitch made my life a little bit better and he always made me smile, and I will be forever grateful.
Carol Norman says
Sending prayers to Connie and Matt in this difficult time. We are so so sorry. Have lots of memories of the kids when they were little.
Tracy A Malm says
I am his aunt, and Mitchy was my son from another mother, my sister Connie. I was there when this beautiful person came into this world and I was honored to be able to gently kiss him goodbye as he made his way to his final stop on this earth.
Mitchy loved fiercely, there was no doubt who was in his heart. A heart that he camouflaged with a rough exterior and an unmatched sense of humor.
I beleive God’s wisdom is greater than our understanding and Mitchy is playing bass for those in heaven now, he is free and at peace.
He would tell us all to take care of Mom, Lexi, Mason and Disco; rest easy Mitchy knowing we will.
I’ll love you forever, and cherish our memories together.
Derrick Figg (Geist) says
Mitch….I havent seen Him in years…There is no doubt Mitch was a Great Friend when I knew Him..Character like that does Not deminish…Id bet He was a Great Friend to All who knew Him…The first day I met Mitch, I was moving from My Father’s, to My Mother’s new House in Isanti. He was playing with other neighborhood kids when He saw Me hump out of My Father’s truck. …Before I even got to yhe door, Mitch was there introducing Himself, seeing if I wanted to hang out a d go sneak a look at The Purple Monkey that apparently lived in the Hollow by the Creek eunning through Our backyards. ..I told My Mother I was there and was leaving with My New Friend Mitch from down the street…
We would watch the Horror Movies as they would come out and I will NEVER forget watching Naked Gun in the Theater with Him and Matt…That is still a Fond Memory…
We wiuld also get caught weekly by Mitch Sr. drinking His Budweisers and smoking His Marlboro Reds in the basement watching SCTV…He would just laugh at Us…
Mitch Lamb was a Great Friend to Me for many years…I will NEVER forget Him…His Passing Will Cut Deep to All He Knew….

“Yeah, when I get where I’m going
There’ll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I’ll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I’m going
Don’t cry for me down here”
This is exactly what Lance and Mitch would say to those hurting right now. When I lost my brother Lance, he could never be replaced, but Mitchell stepped up and tried to fill his shoes. Mitch became my “big brother”. This past year through all the difficulties I faced (3 brain surgeries, working as a nurse during Covid pandemic, and a divorce), he was there with me every step of the way, day or night. I could always message or call Mitch. Sadly, I have lost both of these men that have always protected me. That shield of protection I have felt all these years is gone. I don’t have words right now that could explain the huge hole in my heart. He could make me laugh or smile at the hardest moments. He would remind me that I was loved on my worst days. Mitch, you’re loved. I will miss your laugh so much.
Cheers to you and Lance drinking beers and playing Bass. I love you brother. My heart is so broken. You are so missed, I’ve almost called and messaged you a hundred times since hearing you were gone.. Fly high, I wish I could hear both Lance and Mitch laughing together(they both had a unique laugh that was always contagious.) I look forward to the day I get those big hugs again. Life will never be the same without you Mitch.
My condolences to his mom and step dad whom he talked about frequently, his brother Matt and his family, his kids, and beloved dog Disco. As well as all of the lives Mitch had touched.
John Bettendorf says
So sorry to hear that Mitch passed away. He was bigger than life, and I always enjoyed seeing him in the store. My condolences to Connie, Dan and the rest of the family.
Tiffany Blumb says
Mitch was the friend that was always there. Sometimes it was to talk about all the good in life other times it was about the bad times! No matter what I always knew I had someone to talk to.
If I ever needed a good laugh I like to think about the time I was going to hang out with him and instead of using hair products he put after shave all over his hair. I’m sure Connie and Dan’s house still smells of potent amounts of after shave.
I will sure miss my random chats with Mitch and always hearing the faint sounds of bass being played all while he talks about some new bass he saw online that he had to get. Or how amazing taco Tuesday was at the bar by his old apartment.
Joe Murdock says
“Joey murds” or “joey” was the norm for mitch to call me. It didn’t bother me from him or matt. I was actually quite used to it and it would be odd for him to call me anything else. A brother I never had whose family I always felt closer to then my own. Spending holidays with them. Hanging out in the garage, sometimes listening to music I didn’t like at all but it didn’t bother me because I was just there with my buddy. Some crazy memories of the early days working together at little bighorn. Always so proud of his wheelhorse lawn mower and the wheelies he could do on it. I could show up at his house any time of day or night without calling and he would never be mad. He loved his kids with all his heart. My buddy, my friend, brother I miss so much. Love you mitchy.
