Bob was born on August 30, 1951 in Stillwater, OK, to parents Clarence and Ruth. He attended OSU and studied construction management, working in the family business for many years.
Bob found real happiness and contentment when he met Kathy, in 1992. They married one year later bringing together Bob’s daughters from a previous marriage, Anne and Susan, and Kathy’s children, Chris, Jon, Anna, and Emily. In 2018, they celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary with all of their children and grandchildren at Big Cedar Lodge, in Branson. MO, a destination that was near and dear to Bob for the nature and fishing.
Bob enjoyed all types of fishing and doing projects in his workshop. Decorating the house seasonally with Kathy and sending incredible holiday boxes to each of their children. Since the beginning of their marriage Date night was every Tuesday – he loved the popcorn more than the movies they saw.
Bob is preceded in death by his parents Clarence and Ruth and his siblings Nancy (Zellers) and Bill.
He is survived by his siblings Carolyn (Buser), David, Mary (McCoy), Mike, and Rick Lambert. Papa loved his fourteen grandchildren - Austin & Charlie Fuhrman of Oklahoma City, Marie & Karleigh Fuhrman of Frisco, TX, Megan, Nathan and Avery Zike of Blanchard, OK, Kate, Jack and Abby Gable of Frisco, TX, Ottillie and Amelia Boyle of Chicago, IL, and Olivia, Lola, and Eliza Propp of New York City, most of whom were old enough to be entertained with stories of his pet rhino and eat his homemade vanilla ice cream on hot summer days at Yost. The in-law/outlaws, Molly Fuhrman, Jessica Fuhrman, Josh Gable, Craig Boyle, and Jamie Propp look forward to carrying on these legacies.
Bob was a member of the Knights of Columbus, was President of the Stillwater Jaycee’s, was a member of the AGC (American General Contractors). He was a member of the Sigma Nu fraternity, of which his father, Clarence, was a charter member at OSU. He was a member of St. John and St. Francis Catholic Church, in Stillwater and was a member of the Parish Council.
He was an avid OSU fan and longtime season ticket holder. He will be remembered by all for his sense of humor and his warm and loving heart.
He always told people he wished that he had been born rich instead of so darned good looking. The richness came in the depth of love, faith, and wonderful relationships with Kathy, the kids, grandkids, and lifelong friendships.
Godspeed Bob Lambert, we love you TTFA (today, tomorrow, forever, and always)
