John Max Lambert

John Max Lambert AKA “Big John” 85 was called home by the Lord and his angels on June 12, 2020.  Mr. Lambert passed away at the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center-Salisbury, NC.  John was a Korean War veteran and a member of the American Legion Post 520.

John Lambert was the son of the late John Duncan Lambert and Eliza Broadway Lambert.

John was an amazing husband, a wonderful father, and a loving grandfather.  He enjoyed being a family man, reading his newspapers, helping others out when he could, and he loved to tell jokes and make people laugh and smile.  Whenever you think of Mr. Lambert, please think of him with a smile because that smile is what he would have wanted.

He is survived by his wife Cynthia L. Lambert of the home, his sons John Tilmon (Tim) Lambert, William Trent Lambert and a daughter, Joy Lambert Ritter; several grandchildren, John Duncan Lambert, Trena Lambert Simpson, Matthew Trent Lambert, Charles Michael Lambert, Joshua James Lambert, Caitlin Grace Lambert, several great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews, a special nephew-in-law, Michael Poplin and his best friend of many years Zeke Farmer.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son Joseph Turner, several sisters and a younger brother.

Per Mr. Lambert’s request, there will be no formal funeral service but there will be a celebration of life gathering in the future for family and friends.

Since there will be no formal funeral service, in lieu of flowers, the family would like to ask that you honor John Max Lambert’s memory by simply being caring and kind to one another, helping others out when you can and passing a smile along to someone ever once in a while.

Stanly Funeral and Cremation Care of Albemarle is serving the Lambert family.

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!


We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.


Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.


The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.
