VICTOR KEITH LAMIN, MD

Beloved father, husband, son, brother and dear friend. Victor died suddenly at age 56 and was buried on the 31st of December, 2017 accompanied by the loves of his life, dear wife, Cheryl Biegun Lamin, adored sons in whom he took great pride and pleasure, Adam (20), Mark (17), and Evan (14), parents Corinne and Leonard, brother Bruce (Basha) and many childhood and lifelong friends including those from his alma maters from Homestead High School (National Merit Scholar), University of California Berkeley (BS, Biochemistry, honors) University of California Los Angeles (MD), Stanford University (Nephrology Fellowship) from his work and from his current home of Mercer Island, Washington.

A born optimist, he relished in academic, patient-care, and pharmaceutical industry work. He brought a wealth of experience to Loma Linda University Medical Center (15 years Associate professor and Acting Medical Director of Solid Organ Transplantation), Rigel (liaison among medical, sales, research) and Desert Nephrology (Palm Desert, California following renal patients).

While painfully brief, Victor’s humility, integrity, quick-wit, aesthetic appreciation, and scholarly dedication manifested in his life’s endeavors. Whether engaging in science, music, art, film, history, politics, or literature, Victor encouraged and lovingly facilitated these attributes in his children, wife and friends; always with the overarching goal of learning, teaching and sharing culture and fostering virtue. In the end, we will miss most of all his loving smile and warm hugs.
