Charles Willard “Charlie” Lambert, 65, of the Rough Branch community of Cherokee, passed away on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013.

Charlie is the son of the late Amos Lambert and Lalah (Bales) Lambert.

At the time of his passing Charlie was away from home doing what he loved to do, hunting, fishing and boating with his beloved wife of 48 years, Wanda Massey Lambert.  Wanda had recently retired and they planned to get away and take pleasure in each other’s company.  Charlie also loved spending time with family and friends cutting-up, teasing them with anecdotal rhymes and having fun.  His endearing presence will be missed by all those who knew him.

Surviving are children, Tammy J. Lambert, of Cherokee, Timothy C. Lambert and wife Gail, of Lakeland, Fla., Teresa Lambert Wolfe and husband Lloyd, of Cherokee; brothers, Grady A. Lambert and William E. Lambert; sisters, Beulah Lambert Young, Phyllis Lambert Tomlinson and Shirley Lambert Reagan; special friends, Steve and Lydia Parker; six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Charlie was preceded in death by one sister, Charlotte Marie Lambert.

A visitation was  held on Friday, Nov. 1 at the Cherokee Church of God at 6 pm. Charles remained at the church until hour of service on Saturday, Nov. 2. Services were officiated by Rev. Wayne Massey and Rev. Ronnie Massey. A burial followed in the Tow String Cemetery. Pall bearers were Dustin Lambert, Luke Lambert, Timothy Lambert Jr., Kevin Lambert, Casey Reagan, Gowi Nelson, Willie Lambert and Richard Lambert.

Long House Funeral Home assisted the family in the arrangements.
