Edward C. Lambert died on November 10, 2022, at the age of 63. A service was held on November 14 at Emanuel Cemetery, officiated by Rabbi Joe Black. Feldman Mortuary handled the arrangements.
A native of Encino, California, Mr. Lambert had a lengthy career at United Launch Alliance, where he was an aeronautical engineer. He was part of more than 150 rocket and missile launches.
Mr. Lambert’s family said “he was proud to be a 12th-generation descendent of John Howland, an original Mayflower Pilgrim.”
In November, 1982, Mr. Lambert married Melenie Fliegel. They remained a couple until Mrs. Fliegel’s passing in May, 2015. They moved from San Diego, Calif., to Centennial, Colo., in 1996.
“Ed exuded joy through his weirdness, his dry sense of humor and a fabulous mustache,” his family said.
“He was a consummate engineer: a rocket scientist while he worked, and a wealth of knowledge during his retirement.”
Survivors are children Rebeka (Jason) McBride and Adam Lambert; granddaughter Abigail Pearl McBride; siblings Arline (John) Lisinski and Don (Victoria) Lambert; brother-in-law Bryan (Lorie) Fliegel and father-in-law Martin Fliegel.
