Humboldt Deputy Sheriff Diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma

Charlie Lamb, a longtime Deputy Sheriff for the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma.

Charlie has always wanted a career where he could be impactful in people’s lives and help others. In 2001 he accepted a position, as a Correctional Officer with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, where he excelled. Charlie was quickly recognized for his ability to lead, and his compassion for others. In 2005, Charlie was promoted to Deputy Sheriff, a position he proudly holds today. During this time, he has had a positive impact in the community personally and professionally.

Charlie is a perfect example of integrity, loyalty, honesty, and is one of the hardest working people you will ever meet. He is not only known for devotion to his wife and four children, but to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. He is always the first person to lend a hand or help someone in need. He is a loving father and is extremely active in their lives, sports, and education.

We ask that you hold Charlie and his family in your thoughts and prayers. As one can imagine, it is almost impossible to prepare for such news. Charlie is the sole provider for his family. It can take several months to years to recover from this illness.  This condition will impose a large financial burden on Charlie and his family unless they receive help.

The Humboldt Deputy Sheriff’s Organization has a created a bank account to help Charlie and his family.
