Obituary

William A. Lambert died July 29, 2020 in Stillwater, Oklahoma surrounded by his loving family. His Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, August 1, 2020 at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Stillwater, Oklahoma with his interment following at Sunset Memorial Gardens in Stillwater. Strode Funeral Home and Cremation is in charge of arrangements.
I was born to Clarence William and Mary Ruth (Harrison) Lambert on February 13, 1933 at St. Anthony’s hospital in Oklahoma City. I have joined my wife in heaven on July 29, 2020. Everyone I was fortunate to meet knew me as Bill, except my 1st grade teacher (Sister Barbara) who called me Billie and the government who called me William.
Early in my life, during a very hot July in 1955, I celebrated our Nations birthday and later that month I celebrated my marriage to Dolores (aka Dol). I cherished almost 65 years of married bliss with my bride, and we (she mostly) raised 6 wonderful children together, Linc, Dan, Tim, Mark, Laurie and Lisa and they gave us 22 grandchildren and three great grandchildren who were all a joy. From 1951 thru 1985, Dol, myself and our 6 children completed 65 semesters at OSU. I was a proud father and proud to be a member of the Stillwater community.
In the 1970’s I suffered business failure. My brother, Dave, rescued me with a job at Lambert Construction which resulted in being a lifetime career. My job at Lamberts connected me with hundreds of fine people, not only in Stillwater, but 27 states.
My God came first, my wife and family second and my job third. Before I forget, I deeply loved my wife and siblings (most of the time). I find it overwhelming to name all my extended family, (Six children and their families – 35 people, brothers and sisters and their spouses - 13), so I won’t.
With luck and the faith of my savior I lasted a long time in the overall scheme of things. My life was a hoot. My Grandmother told me once, as soon as they slap you on the rear to get you crying, you’re beginning the journey to die. I have completed that cycle of Life.
I have loved, been loved and have only a few regrets, so I say goodbye to all my family, friends and, I hope, no enemies. There is now a vacancy at the coffee shop and one less old man who always enjoyed pulling someone’s leg.
My hope and belief are that I will be with my family and everyone that I have known and loved who have gone before me, once again for all eternity.
Bill was predeceased by his parents, his wife Dol, sister Nancy and brother-in-law Dale Zellers.
He is survived by his children, Lincoln and Joyce Lambert, Daniel and Debi Lambert, Timothy and Keri Lambert, Mark and Julie Lambert, Laurie and Blake Ballweber, and Lisa and Dennis Helm; Grandchildren, Shannon and Robert Clemons, William Lambert and Corleigh Green, Cory and Brandi Lambert, Trevor Lambert and Joy Anderson; Chad and Kelsey McMains; Hannah, Nathan, Jordan and Tabitha Scoggins; Grady Lambert, LeeVan and Shelby Lambert, Stone Lambert; Micah, Mariah, Israel and Isaac Ballweber; Caleb, Nathan, Bri and Gabbi Helm; and Great Grandchildren Griffin and Grayson Clemons and Hendrix Lambert; siblings Carolyn Buser, David Lambert, Mary McCoy, Mike Lambert, Bob Lambert and Rick Lambert, numerous nieces, nephews and in-laws, and more friends than anyone could number.
Pallbearers will be my Grandsons: William Lambert, Cory Lambert, Trevor Lambert, Robert Clemens, Chad McMains, Nathan Scoggins, Jordan Scoggins, Grady Lambert LeeVan Lambert Stone Lambert, Isaac Ballweber, Caleb Helm and Nathan Helm.
Honorary Pallbearers will be my Great Grandsons: Griffin Clemens, Grayson Clemens and Hendrix Lambert.

To the Lambert Family, Our heart goes out to for your loss. He said he "was ready", even though we weren't. It is hard to imagine times without him and his dry Joking around. He lived a full life and our lives will be forever enriched by knowing him. We will always miss our "Uncle Bill"! Kris Andrews
