Predeceased by his parents Rufus E. Lambert and Anna M. Forbes, his wife W. Joan Allin, his son Daniel A. Lambert and his sister Joan T. Bird.
Bud was a true ‘tough cookie’ surviving many incidents, accidents and injuries throughout his life. Coming back strong and stubborn every time.
He worked at GM and for H.R. Stark Plumbing. He and Joan were avid bowlers and members of the Oshawa Rockets Motorcycle Club. He also was very skilled as a motorcycle mechanic during the heyday of the ‘gangs’ and wrenched for Dave Rockbrune and Russ Milburn both dirt track and Ice racers.
He eventually took up SCUBA diving and was very active with the Oshawa Diving Club. In his later years he volunteered and championed the CNIB and (after they closed their Oshawa office) the LIONS Clubs and the services they provided for the blind. He outlived 3 guide dogs, starting with Spike in 1985. He played on the very successful ‘Ice Owls’ blind hockey team.
He leaves behind his long-time friend and companion Gayle Clark; his brother Norm, sisters Edna Brown, Doreen Brown, Audrey McCready and Adrienne Milne; his children Laurie Scattergood (John), Gary (Annette), Bill (Penny) and Rob; his grandchildren Tara, Luke, Michael, Josh, Laura, Andrew and Jesse; and 3 great-grandchildren MacKenzie, Desiree and Alexis.A Memorial Service will be held at ARMSTRONG FUNERAL HOME, 124 King Street East, Oshawa on Monday April 23rd at 2pm.
