LAMBERT, Kelly Leroy

January 7, 1963 – April 20, 2019

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Kelly Leroy Lambert. 

Kelly was born the middle son to Gordon and Hilda Lambert in Calgary, Alberta on January 07, 1963. He grew up on the Lambert family farm with his two brothers just outside of Cochrane. After attending both Westbrook School and Cochrane High School, Kelly went on to work in a number of jobs before finding his position at Burnco Rock Products, which he held for 17 years. 

Kelly is survived by his mother Hilda; his children, Madison and Braeden; his two brothers, John (Nancy) and Mike; and his three nieces, Jenna, Stacey and Isla. He is predeceased by his father Gordon Lambert, who passed away in 2012.

Kelly was never afraid to get in a little trouble and will always be remembered for his vibrant smile, quick wit and stubbornness. 

A Celebration of Kelly’s Life will be held at 1:30 pm on Thursday May 02, 2019 at the Cochrane Legion (114 Fifth Ave, Cochrane, AB). Visitors are welcome to join and pay their respects to Kelly, and the rest of the Lambert family.

Arrangements entrusted to Cochrane Country Funeral Home, Florence (Flo) Simpson, Funeral Director. Ph: 403-932-1039.

    August, 1982, Kelly, Matt and myself entered a tattoo studio in Calgary to seek our first ever tattoo. As tough as we pretended to be, it wasn’t till sometime later that Kelly and I would confess it hurt like heck. We both ended up with eagles on our arms.To me my tattoo represented “Freedom” Freedom to do what ever we wanted in this life. As young men we were ready to take on the world, and we did just that.
    Now my tattoo has even more significance….You will never be forgoten Kelly.

    I worked with Kelly at Burnco. He in Calgary and I in Edmonton. I remember we were sent up to Ft Mac to get a portable concrete plant running. Kelly was a great guy and we had a lot of laughs on that job. He was extremely intelligent, loved to smile, loved to joke around and was an all-round great guy. I didn’t see him often as we worked in different cities but I will always remember him. Condolences to the family.

    It is with a heavy heart that I send my sincere condolences to the Lambert family.

    Kelly was a person I called a college and friend while working with him while in Calgary working for BURNCO. Over the years working with Kelly we worked close together on many projects, learned together at many conferences and someone to be reckoned with during noon hour workouts. Kelly had this unique humor about him that could only make you laugh and smile. Kelly you will be missed.
