Wilbert (Bert) Douglas Lambert
June 2, 1945 – November 1, 2009
We would like to announce the passing of Bert Lambert to his eternal rest with the Lord on November 1, 2009.
After much illness he is at peace and leaves behind his wife Patricia (Pat) of 45 years; a daughter, Frances (Dave) and her children Amanda and Josh; a son, Paul and his children Levi and Cole; a great grandchild, Jake and a second great grandchild due in December; three brothers Wilfred (Josie), Richard, and Herb (Lena). Bert loved his family and enjoyed seeing and talking with each one.
Bert is predeceased by his parents, sister Vivian and brother Rene.
Bert was born in St. Laurent, Manitoba to Oscar and Mae Doris. He lived and worked in Manitoba as a cabinet maker. Mantioba is where he met and married Pat and raised their two children. In 1969, his family moved to BC, and he started working for Alcan in 1977.
Bert loved baseball caps and hunting. Although not always a great hunter he enjoyed the outdoors and being with friends.
Many of Bert’s friends and extended family will miss him and his sense of humour.
Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again.
The Lambert family would like to thank Dr. Kay, Dr. Skully and the nursing staff at KGH for the care given to Bert during his illness.
A memorial service in Bert’s honour will be held Tuesday, November 10 at 1:30 pm at the Mountain View Alliance Church.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Bert’s name.
