Lambert, Frank W.
BLUEFIELD, Va. - On January 10, 2010, Frank W. Lambert, 88, passed away at home, and joined his Angels to be with God and his beautiful wife of 61 years. Frank served his country in World War II. He was in active military duty for the Army for a period of four years. He was very proud of this, and often told amusing and heartfelt stories of his time spent traveling during his time serving. He was also a member of the Local Bluefield, Virginia VFW for many years. Frank lived with his family and worked at Leatherwood Farm for many years of his life. He was very dedicated, and found joy in the farming and loved having the blessing of sharing this lifestyle with his family. He had the opportunity to construct a Country Club in Rockville, Md. and soon thereafter worked to construct and maintain the Fincastle Country Club in Bluefield, Va. until his retirement. He was a loving husband and father and passed on his immense knowledge of everything to anyone who was willingto try. In fact, everyone that knew him called him "Pops," and in turn, he called his women friends "Sis." Mr. Lambert was preceded in death by his soulmate and wife, Pauline L. Lambert; and by his infant daughter, Theresa June Lambert. He was also preceded by his parents, Harless C. and Maggie Lambert, and by four brothers and three sisters. Frank is survived by three sisters and one brother. He is survived by three sons, Danny Lambert, Larry Lambert, and Frank Lambert, Jr. of Bluefield, Va.; and by one daughter, Brenda Lambert Monaco of Lewes Beach, Del. In addition, Frank is the proud grandfather of three grandchildren, Danny Lambert, Jr. of Bluefield, Matthew Hoopes of Wilmington, Del., and Amanda Beth Stadler of Lewes Beach, Del. Also he was blessed with three great-grandchildren, Taylor Marie Cirillo, Kaleb Stadler and Emily Stadler, all of Lewes Beach, Del. A celebration of life for Frank will be held on Thursday, January 14, 2010 at the Rodriguez FuneralHome in Bluefield, Va. Friends may call from 12 noon until 2:00 p.m. at which time the ceremony will be held. Burial will follow at Maple Hill Cemetery. Dr. Allen Hammond will be officiating the service.
