Mitch Lambert went home to be with his Lord and Savior on July 29, 2019, after an accident while bicycling to his favorite route of McDonalds. Surrounded by family and friends, he was met at the gates of heaven by Jesus with the words of, "Well done my good and faithful servant".

Robert Mitchell Lambert was born on January 13, 1963. He graduated as valedictorian of Rootstown High School in 1981, and went on to Kent State University to earn a bachelor’s degree and Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction. He taught for 32 years primarily teaching chemistry at Kent Roosevelt High School, where he was beloved by students and colleagues alike, winning numerous awards for teaching and mentoring.

He was well known for his good humor, patience, and giving heart. An avid hunter, racquetball player and cyclist, he was a longstanding member and leader in the Community Bible Church in Rootstown where organized and ran a monthly food pantry.

He will be dearly missed by his wife Darlene Lambert whom he married on June 2, 1984, with a love so deep they never left the "honeymoon phase". Together they raised son Bobby Lambert, and daughter Lizzy Boggs who with her husband Tom gave him his greatest joys of grandchildren Gwen and Mia Boggs. Mitch and Darlene built a home and raised their family next door to his parents Robert and Donna Joann Lambert where he himself was raised with his brother Nevin Lambert. Nevin now lives in Georgia with his wonderful wife Becky.

A memorial service will be held at 1:00 PM on Sunday, August 4, 2019, at Kent Roosevelt High School.

What a loss to the community. I remember him being such a good student with excellent personality in my 4th grade class in Rootstown. So glad he furthered his education to become an excellent teacher and faculty member. Losses like this are hard to fill.

I absolutely loved Mr. Lambert's Accelerated Chemistry class. He made class exciting, kept us on our toes and engaged (famously burning unsuspecting student's homework, or chomping corners off of them if they weren't careful), and brought chemistry alive to us. I served as the Mitch Lambert Fan Club President from 2003-2005 and he never let on how irritating we were to him-patiently working with us to make sure we understood valence electrons, how to work hard, and how to behave in class. He will always be remembered as a favorite at Kent Roosevelt! Love and prayers to his family!

What a kind and wonderful soul. Education has lost one of the best. The Lord must have needed him.
Thank God he was there to help me in chemistry! I will forever be grateful!
My prayers are for your families healing.
