LAMM, a native of Moorhead, MN and pioneer entrepreneur in the Canadian
tourist and aviation industry, died Saturday, July 6, 2002 in
Cincinnati, OH at the age of 82. Barney built and for 25 years operated
Barneys Ball Lake Lodge, a premiere fly-in hunting and fishing resort in
northern Ontario. In 1946 Barney married Marion Peterson of Fargo and,
leaving behind a successful flying school, the newlyweds headed north to
Canada in a two seater Piper float plane. On the shores of Ball Lake,
the Lamms enlisted the help of the Ojibwe men from the nearby Grassy
Narrows and Whitedog reservations to begin construction of the luxury
wilderness resort that would become the center of their life together.
Over the years, Barney and Marion had a hand in developing and operating
a network of fishing resorts and charter airlines throughout the
Canadian wilderness. It is a testament to Barneys remarkable business
integrity and generosity of spirit that he counted loyal friends amongst
every facet of the tourist industry, from pilots and politicians, to
native guides and celebrity sportsmen.
Barneys strength as a businessman of principle was tested in 1970 when an environmental situation precipitated the closure of Ball Lake Lodge due to dangerous levels of methyl mercury in the water system. The Lamms refocused their energy on seeking accountability and compensation for the camp owners and native peoples whose lives had been affected, even as Barney began restructuring and expanding his aviation business throughout the Canadian north country. For the next 25 years, Barney was a central figure in Canadian aviation and Ontario Central Airlines, which was headquartered in Gimli, MB helped to open up the wilderness to other professional and charitable endeavors. The real measure of a persons life is not in the accomplishments of an extraordinary career, but in the loyalty of his friends, the love of his family and the legacy of integrity and generosity that he leaves behind.
For all of his professional success, Barney will be remembered most for his love of the Canadian north, his enthusiasm for flying, his unfailing generosity toward anyone in need and his unremittingly loyalty to all who worked with him. Everyone who knew Barney can tell a story of some kindness given freely and without recompense, simply because Barneys heart was as open and unbounded as the wilderness country he loved. When all else had been weighed, it was Barneys integrity, humor, loyalty and generosity that drew people to him with love and admiration.
Barney is survived by his four daughters, Rochelle, Cherie, Laurie and Elyse; his three sons-in-law, Mark, Kim and Joe; and his nine grandchildren, David-Andrew, Sierra, Michael, Sara Kate, Megan, Adam, Haleigh, Daniel and Hannah. He was preceeded in death by his wife Marion and his daughters, Mary Denise and Maria.
