Royce "Bud" Lambert, 72

Kingston, N.H. — Bud Lambert, of Great Pond Road, Kingston, died on December 23 at Parkland Medical Center, Derry, after suffering a heart attack on his overnight paper route.

Born in Tishomingo, Okla. in 1940 to Louise and Royce Lambert, Bud's family moved to California during the dust bowl, where Bud enlisted in the Navy after High School. He served 20 years as an operations specialist and served on several ships on the Mediterranean, the Indian Ocean and on the Western Pacific. In the late 1960's he attended the Defense Language Institute in Monterrey, Calif., and became a Vietnamese interpreter during that War.

After retiring from active duty, Bud worked as a ranch foreman and horse trainer in California and later in Utah. In 2006 he moved to Kingston to be with his son, Jesse Lambert, and granddaughter, Skyla Lambert. Since that time he has enjoyed his night job delivering newspapers for the Union Leader and the Wall Street Journal.

Bud was an avid outdoorsman. He was a freshwater fisherman and loved camping in the remote western mountains with his trusty mini-schnauzer, Taz. His folksy personality, jokes and anecdotes will long be remembered and often recounted with smiles by all his friends and family.

He is survived by four sons, Jesse, of Kingston N.H., William, Kenneth and Bud Jr., of California and Colorado; one daughter, Michele Lambert of Arizona; and his granddaughter, Skyla Lambert. H; three brothers, John and Robert Lambert and William.

ARRANGEMENTS: Services for Bud will be held at the East Hampstead Union Church on Saturday, January 12, at 11 a.m. A mercy meal will follow at the church.
