Franklin Clements “Franky” Lambert, 72, of Stuarts Draft received the promise of resurrection on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at his home surrounded by his family.
Born August 25, 1946 in Charlottesville, he was the son of the late Franklin Charles and Mary Elizabeth (Clements) Lambert. On June 20, 1970 he married Georgeann King and the two shared a blessed union of 49 years.
Frank was a faithful and active member of Calvary United Methodist Church. As a church member, he enjoyed participating in the Food Pantry and serving on the Staff Parrish Committee. He was a U.S. Air Force veteran having served his country honorably during the Vietnam Era. Prior to retirement, he was employed for 39 years as the Maintenance Manager at Kenco. Throughout his lifetime, Frank enjoyed traveling, gardening and helping family, neighbors and friends. His greatest joy, however, was spending time with his friends and family, especially his grandson, Brayden. He will be remembered for his sense of humor, and as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend to many.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, Nelson Young.
