1927 - 1994
Bert Lamb was born March 16, 1927, to George Dewey Lamb and Josephine Isabelle Meyer Lamb in Rock Springs. His parents owned a small ranch on Henrys Fork in Washam, but his dad was away from home a lot working to support the family. Bert and his brother Keith would go out on the Buttes and chase wild horses. They built several corrals around the country from the Buttes to Fire Hole. They would trap or rope the horses and sell them to help support the family. Bert quit school in ninth grade and hired on with different ranches around the area from Linwood to Lone Tree. He served in the Army in Alaska, then returned to Manila, Utah, where he married Yvonne Cook. They then took jobs on the Current Creek Ranch south of Rock Springs. Bert left Current Creek in the fall of 1961 and leased a ranch on Cedar Mountain. In 1968 he bought a ranch in McKinnon, which he operated until 1981 when he sold it and leased 1,200 acres in Robertson, where he continued ranching. He and Yvonne had five children.
