He liked dogs and listened to 80’s and 90’s music. His favorite television shows were WWE Wrestling, Little House on the Prairie and Full House. He also loved scary movies. He enjoyed riding his bike and watching the Seahawks. Lam will be cremated on his birthday March 23rd, 2018.

Lam was such a joy to be around at Transportation. I recall the first day I met him. One of his aides was teaching him how to vacuum.
He was a true part of the drivers family and we missed him dearly when he retired.
I am honored to have worked with Lam.

Lam’s eyes never shined brighter than when he was at work - well maybe when he was talking about professional wrestling. 😉 Thank you for trusting Ed Herbert and me when we shared our belief that Lam could work. He could and did with grace, humility and joy. Never underestimate the power of a job. My thoughts are with you all in this time of grieving and celebration.
Proud to be one of Lam’s former teachers at LWHS
