Obituary for Lee Lambert

Lee  Lambert
Lee Benson Lambert, 88, of Interlachen, passed from this life on Thursday, September 20, 2018 at his home following an extended illness. Born in Garvin, Oklahoma to Leonard Lambert and Lillian Brett Lambert, he moved to Putnam County in 1974 coming from Jacksonville. A veteran of the Korean War, Lee served as a submariner aboard the USS Picuda (SS-382) and retired as a Yeoman First Class (YN1) from the U.S. Navy following 20 years of distinguished service. Four of his 20 years, he worked at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Following his military career, Lee worked 10 years as a finance manager with Bank of America / Finance America and another 15 years he was self-employed. He was a member of the Orange Springs Community Church. Lee had been active in numerous organizations over the years including the Fleet Reserve, American Legion Post #293, a life member of VFW Post #10164 and the Fraternal Order of Eagles where he was a Past President. He had also been active with the Boy Scouts and served as Scout Master of Troop #287 in Jacksonville. In his retirement years, Lee was passionate about fly fishing and landscaping (certified Green Thumb). He also enjoyed watching TV, especially episodes of Gunsmoke, the Little League World Series and girls college softball. Lee’s family affectionately called him a “Baby Magnet” for his love of children and especially his grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a daughter, Teresa Laney and a brother, Reuben Lambert.
Lee is survived by his wife of 60 years, Phyllis Lambert of Interlachen, 2 sons, Mike Lambert (JoAnn) of Interlachen and Tim Lambert (Sharon) of Melrose, a daughter, Lori Fowler (Chuck) of Interlachen, a son-in-law, Rex Laney of Interlachen, a brother, Scott Lambert (Gloria) of CA, 3 sisters, Martha Robberson of Wichita, KS, Helen Dearman of OK and Lou Ryan of CA, 9 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
Memorial services celebrating Lee’s life will be at 10:00 A.M. Saturday, September 29, 2018 at College Park Baptist Church in Palatka with Pastor Darrell Jones and Chaplain Jakie Carmicle officiating. The U.S. Navy will also bestow full military honors in recognition of Lee’s time in service to country. In keeping with Lee’s wishes, his cremated remains will be scattered at sea by the U.S. Navy at a later date.
