January 20, 1951 – June 30, 2019

Putnam – Ronald “Ron” Lambert, 68, of Ballou St, died peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, June 30, 2019 at Webster Manor. Born in Circleville, Ohio, he was the son of the late Donald and Thena (Albright) Lambert.

Ron was a proud Veteran of the United States Navy who served in Vietnam. He was the lead maintenance man for Greenville Manor for many years, and a truck driver and delivery man for several years.

Ron was a true outdoorsman and enjoyed working with nature and his hands. He had a flare for hobbies and loved many.

His longest and most beloved endeavor was bee keeping. He kept and cared for hives for over 30 years.

Ron is survived by his son, Jared Lambert and his wife Susan of Putnam, CT; two daughters, Clarissa Allan and her husband Jeff of Glocester, RI and Emily Lambert of Greenville, RI; two sisters, Donna Guillen of Texas and Linda Albright of Ohio; four grandchildren, Salem Lambert, Joelle Lambert, Liam Allan and Faelyn Allan.

Condolences for the family of “Ronald L. Lambert”

Jared, Clarissa, Emily sorry for the loss of your father. I only knew him a short time but to loose your parent is difficult no matter how you grew up, whether it be in a divorced family or one such as mine. My thoughts are with you in this time of mourning.

Jared, Clarissa, Emily and family:

It was with great sadness that I heard of the passing of your Dad. Uncle Ron is indelibly imprinted on almost every childhood memory I have from my earliest years, from when he and my Dad returned from the war as friends and shipmates and settled here on the family farm. As a young boy, long before you cousins were born, I’d sleep over and he’d play his banjo and we’d have a great time. He was the first to teach me how to drive the tractors. Always mechanically inclined, he introduced me to radio controlled airplanes, how engines worked, and motorcycles (starting with what we called “mini bikes” back in the ’70s). The great memories continued as you kids were born, so many we shared together right up to when my brother and I spent time with Jared and Ron out in the wilds of CT last summer. Ron was one of the few people that had the greatest impact on my life from an early age, helped teach me what it was to be an all-American boy, and he will never be forgotten.

Love,

Jeff

Jared, I was so sorry to hear about your father’s passing. I know this is a very sad and difficult time for you and your family. You have my very deepest sympathy.

So sorry for your loss Jared & Susan. May he rest in peace.

Condolence from Laurence J Sasso Jr on July 9th, 2019 4:30 pm

Jared, Emily, and Clarissa – You have my deepest sympathy. I hadn’t seen your dad in many years, but at one time he was a fairly regular visitor to our farm. He loved to talk with my father about tractors and farm equipment and help him with repairs to the same. He was always pleasant and friendly whenever we spoke. I pray that he is at peace. I am so sorry for your loss.

I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your father.
I have a lot of memories of the early years where we spent a lot of family time with you guys.. the road trip to Tennessee will always stand out as one of my favorite memories.
