James Curtis Lambert, 93, of Odenville, Alabama, passed away on September 9, 2020. He was born September 25, 1926, in Cullman, Alabama, to Glovus Vinus and Emma Chambers Lambert.
Mr. Lambert served our country with honor in the United States Navy and he was a WWII veteran. Curtis was a member of the Masonic brotherhood, Guy T. Smith #883 F & AM Masonic Lodge, of Mobile, Alabama. He loved to read, and he enjoyed a good Louis L’Amour western as well as anything pertaining to history. Curtis traced the genealogy of his family and enjoyed learning his ancestry. He was a people person and enjoyed time spent just visiting with folks. Gigi, the Lambert’s little dog, brought joy to Curtis and his wife. Curtis and Ruth were married for over seventy-three years and had two sons together. Curtis adored his wife and children but when grandchildren and great-grandchildren arrived, his love doubled. He loved to hear about the accomplishments and activities of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and he also enjoyed retelling those stories to anyone he could get to listen. Curtis was an important person to so many and he will be missed greatly.
