Carl Dean Lambert was born April 9, 1940 to Steve and Era Lambert in New Berlin, Alabama. He died peacefully at home February 2, 2021. He was preceded in death by parents, Henry Stephen Lambert and Era Etheridge Crawford Lambert; three brothers, Henry Stephen Lambert, Jr., Smedley Tillman Lambert, and William Buchanan Lambert; three sisters, Julia Lambert Reeder, Janie Lambert, and Fran Lambert Dawson
Survivors who remain to celebrate Mr. Lambert’s life are his wife of almost 62 years, Melba Annette Kittle Lambert; his daughter, Melanie Lambert (Rodney) Stapler; his son, David Carl Lambert; grandson, Stephen Carl (Brianna) Stapler; granddaughter, Monica Lambert (Kane) Collins; great-grandson, Connor Dean Collins; sister, Nell Lambert Cadenhead; brothers, Franklin MacArthur (Barbara) Lambert and Neil Brown (Kathy) Lambert, and a host of nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and friends.
Mr. Lambert finished high school and worked at Southwire 37 years as a mechanic in the Fleet Department. Upon retirement, he enjoyed spending time with his family, gardening, traveling with his wife and talking to anyone who came along. He met the Southwire Breakfast Club on regular basis to catch up and keep up with his former coworkers. Carl came into this world, made the best of every situation, and left it a better place. I’m sure he heard, “Well done, my good and faithful servant” when he stepped into Glory!
