Theo was born Saturday, August 12, 1933, in Marlow, Oklahoma, to Jess and Estelle Lamb. He lived most of his life in the Marlow area and graduated from Marlow High School. Theo went on to marry Dorothy (Cooper) Lamb in Henrietta, Texas, in March of 1972. Together they celebrated 31 years of marriage until Dorothy preceded him in death in 2003.

Theo enjoyed caring for and training animals, especially his fighting roosters, dancing, and hauling hay. Theo served his area and even hauled hay for most of the population around the Marlow and Rush Springs area. His hay hauling became so busy that the Rush Springs coaches required the players to assist Theo.
