Wynn Lambert, 93, of Palm Beach, Florida, passed away peacefully on December 3, 2021 after a short battle with cancer.
Wynn was born February 27, 1928 to Gertrude and William Lambert, in Bell Harbor, New York. After graduating from Far Rockaway High School in 1946, he went to Ohio State University to pursue his dream of becoming a veterinarian. Sadly, his father passed away suddenly at a young age, and Wynn returned home to New York.
He resumed his undergraduate studies at New York University, reorienting his studies towards business and pre-law. Her father was a prominent New York lawyer, and Wynn entered NYU Law School to follow in his footsteps.
Called to fulfill his patriotic duty, Wynn joined the United States military and proudly served in military intelligence during the Korean War. After his tour of duty, Wynn met the love of his life, Barbara. They married in 1955 and were lucky enough to have three children: Wendy, Merryl and Bill.
In 1965, Wynn moved with his family to Weston, Connecticut, where they spent 54 wonderful years. Wynn has had a very successful career in human resources with various companies, as well as in executive search in private practice.
Wynn has been active in the Weston Volunteer Fire Department for decades and served as its chairman for several years. He loved being a firefighter and answering the call for help.
He also spent many years working alongside his wife, who ran a very successful antique and vintage clothing business. A man of simple pleasures, what he loved most was spending time with his family and beloved dogs, playing his guitar, and singing classic country and blues music.
Wynn is survived by his beloved wife, Barbara Lambert; his children, Wendy Lambert, Merryl Reynolds and Bill Lambert; six grandchildren; and a great-grandchild.
