He is preceded in death by his father, Jackie Lambert; his grandmother, Ruby Raftis of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and his grandfather, LeRoy Share of Cedar Rapids.

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance” – Ecclesiastes 3:1-4
