Those who knew Mr. Lambert will remember him as a man with interests as varied as gardening, fussing about the government, sci-fi movies, performing in plays at the Little Theater in Bainbridge, and singing George Strait’s “Love Without End Amen” along with the Climax Grand Ole Opry.

His family remembers him as a devoted husband, father, and grandfather who demonstrated unwavering love and support for his family in all their endeavors, and never missed an opportunity to ensure everyone had their “daily dose of PMA (…positive mental attitude…).”

A deeply faithful man, Mr. Lambert is the very portrait of a strong Christian patriarch who lived his life in service of the Lord and led by example.
