Obituary

Alvin “Clyde” Lambert, 83, of Salem, went home to be with the Lord and to be reunited with Darlene on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at his residence.
He was born on September 28, 1936 in Bluefield, W. Va. to the late Lockard Sheffey and Willie Madeline Champ Lambert. Alvin enlisted and proudly served in the United States Army Reserves in his early teens. On January 3, 1958, he married the love of his life, Darlene Ruble, and by 1959 they had started their little family with the birth of their first born, Cheri Lynn. Alvin became employed with Mick or Mack stores and remained for 24 years until their closing. He then gave another 16 plus years of dedicated service to Lowes hardware prior to his retirement. He enjoyed the outdoors and was certainly known for giving everyone he could a hard time, playing of course. Alvin never met a stranger! Most of all, he will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend to many. He will be missed!
In addition to his parents, Alvin was preceded in death by his wife of 54 years, Edna Darlene Lambert; six brothers; one sister; and his loving dog, “Pepper.”
Family remaining to cherish his memory includes his daughters, Cheri Lynn Lambert, Linda Diane Weddle and husband, Dexter, and Lisa Faye Lambert, all of Salem; seven grandchildren, three great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; special friend, Jr. Bousman, and numerous other friends; and his loving poodle, “Buddy.”
The family will receive friends on Saturday, October 12, 2019 from 2 until 4 pm and 6 until 8 pm at John M. Oakey and Son Funeral Home in Salem. Funeral services to honor Alvin’s life will be conducted on Sunday, October 13, 2019 at 2 pm in the funeral home chapel with Pastor Steve Parker officiating. Interment with military funeral honors will follow in East Hill Cemetery in Salem.
Flowers will be accepted, or donations may be made to Carilion Clinic Hospice, 1615 Franklin Rd SW, Roanoke, Va. 24016
The family would like to thank the staff of Carilion Clinic Hospice for the wonderful care given to Alvin when it was most needed!

Clyde was one of a kind. Always joking and always with a smile on his face even when he didnt agree with Leroy's coaching. Lol. A true friend and we will never forget him.❤
