John Lambert

Burlington - John Lambert was born on July 8, 1925 and died at home surrounded by his family on July 7, 2018.

John graduated from Burlington High School. He served in the U.S. Army 84th Division, 333 Infantry Regiment and fought in the Battle of the Bulge in World War II. John graduated from the University of Vermont, and worked for GMAC in Montreal, QC, Burlington, VT, Claremont, NH and Malone, NY. John worked as a guidance counselor at Winooski High School for 20 years, retiring in 1987.

John is survived by this wife Barbara (Thompson) Lambert; his three children, Craig of Fletcher, Cathy of Grand Isle, Kevin and his wife Suzanne of Livermore, CA; his brother Denis of Stowe; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Alice (Bigras) and Alfred "Babe" Lambert; and six sisters: Pauline, Lillian, Helen, Stella, Jacqueline and Marcelle "Babbie".

John enjoyed crossword and jigsaw puzzles, and always looked forward to his weekly visits with Craig and his two huskies. He was considerate, thoughtful and had a special concern for young people. John had a knack for putting things in perspective, especially when things weren't going as expected. Most notably, John had a wonderful sense of humor. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Holy Cross Church in Colchester in celebration of John's life on Thursday, July 12th at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either the Center for Technology Essex at the Essex School District or the Burlington Technical Center at Burlington High School.

Arrangements are by Boucher and Pritchard Funeral Directors.
