Born into this world August 15, 1955 in Lafayette, Indiana, Max Alan Lambert, age 64, of Byron Center, was set free from his imperfect earthly body and entered into the presence of His Heavenly Father on Monday,  April 13, 2020...forever healed. "Well done good and faithful servant." Eternal gain for Max means a great loss for the many family members and friends that he left behind. Max was preceded in death and welcomed into Heaven by his parents, Russell and Evelyn Lambert, and his in-laws, George Yourgevidge and Ron and Beverly Glass. Max is survived by his wife, Judy, who walked beside him sharing love and life's journey for 42 years; his children who he counted as one of his greatest blessings in his life, Josh (Kelly) Lambert, and Stacey (Joel) Nagelkirk. Max was so proud of his children and he left this earth reassured that they are living and passing on his faith legacy. He was a proud grandpa to six precious grandchildren that filled his life with love and joy, Lucas, Tyson, Caden Lambert, Parker, Peyton, Sawyer Nagelkirk. Max is also survived by his brothers and sisters, Marvin (Betty) Lambert, Kevin Lambert, Denise (Bryan) Rathart, Donna (Mike) Fitzgerald; his in-laws, Pat (Dave) Eikenhout, John Scholtens, Lori (Scott) Morgan; and many nieces and nephews. Max has been an active member of Providence Christian Reformed Church for 42 years. During these years he not only grew in his personal faith but was able to serve in many leadership roles including youth leader, council member, and finance director. Max treasured his friendships at Providence and his church family always held a special place in his heart. Although he was blessed with many gifts and talents, Max was born to be and excelled at being a salesman. Being in sales gave him the opportunity to do the things that brought him great joy, spending time and talking with people. Even with his physical limitations, Max loved to travel and was blessed to enjoy many trips over the years with family and friends, enjoying the beauty of God's creation. God in His perfect timing gave Max his last adventure just months before his death. Max and Judy, along with their kids and grandkids, were able to create some precious final memories on a family Christmas trip to Florida. During his life on earth, Max loved to watch sports. His favorite team was Michigan State. State's basketball and football teams will never be the same without Max coaching faithfully from the couch. Due to the current health situation, a private family service will be held. A public service celebrating Max's life will be held at a later date at Providence CRC. Interment will be in Blain Cemetery. Memorial contributions  may be made to Hand2Hand Ministries or the Legacy Christian School Tuition Assistance Fund.
