Vance Lambert, 61, passed away on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, at Duke University Hospital, Durham, NC.

Vance was a lifelong resident of Moore County, a graduate of North Moore High School and UNC Charlotte, with a degree in Civil Engineering. He worked at Sharon Harris, Myrick Construction, Daniels Construction and Vance Lambert Construction Company. Vance was a loving son, father and grandfather.  Vance “LOVED HIS SONS.”  He loved all his grandchildren, as well and was excited to know that he has another grandchild on the way, from Reid and Ashley. Vance faithfully served his community on the Robbins Rescue Squad for over 30 years.  He was a good neighbor, friend to many and always ready to help anyone.  Vance loved the outdoors and experiencing it with his family: farming, hunting, fishing and just being with nature. He enjoyed trips to the beach with his family every year. Vance had an infectious smile that could spread to a whole group of people.  He had the ability to talk to everyone and make them feel at ease. 

Vance was the son of the late Oliver and Allene Brewer Lambert and was preceded in death by grandparents: George and Lessie Comer Brewer, Hervey and Ella Hussey Lambert.  

Vance is survived by sons: Reid Lambert and Ashley, Ross Lambert and Jennifer, Ethan Lambert and Shannon, Evan Lambert; grandchildren: Jathan and Carson Lambert, Ethan Craig, Everleigh and Iva Lambert; many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
