“For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands eternal in the heavens.” II Corinthians 1
      Marvin B. Lambert was born in Savannah, Ga., July 10, 1955. He was the son of the late Marion Lambert and Jessie “Cleo” Brown Lambert. He grew up in Savannah where he attended the local schools. He graduated from Savannah High School, Savannah, Ga. During his adult life he worked at the Big Star Grocery chain of Savannah. In 1984 he joined the Security staff at Palmetto Dunes Resort, Hilton Head Island, SC and medically retired after twenty-eight years of dedicated service.
       He was affectionately called “Marvin” by his friends and family members. He loved playing chess, UNO, and Monopoly with his Wife, Sons, and Grandchildren. He followed the events of the world by watching CNN, FOX and MSNBC. He took his right to vote seriously, and always exercised that right during election time. He was a follower of Face Book and loved Starbucks Coffee. 
      On July 14, 1979, he was united in holy matrimony to Earnestine Taylor. This union lasted for 38 years and was blessed with two sons, Jermaine and Jeremy who were the love of his life.  He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He told the worst jokes, and then would apologize for them. He always had a smile on his face, and never once complained about his health or life in general. His immediate family and his extended family could always depend on him in time of trouble.
      He accepted Christ as his personal Savior in November of 2016 and was baptized by Rev. Bennie L. Jenkins, Jr. at First Zion Missionary Baptist Church. He supported the church financially and attended faithfully even during times of ill health. His favorite scripture was the 23rd Psalms and his favorite song was “Tell the World that Jesus Live.”
Preceding him in death were his parents, his Father and mother In-law Albert, Sr. and Margaret “Willie Pearl” Taylor; his great grandmother in law, Susie Mack- Frazier and his grandparents, Watkin Brown and Lucille “Momma Cile” Singletary.
      On Saturday, March 17, 2018 at 9:23 am surrounded by his loving family, he departed this life in the emergency room of Hilton Head Island Medical Center.  God touched him with the finger of love and he took flight with his heavenly wings to his heavenly home in glory.
      He leaves to cherish his memories his loving wife Earnestine Lambert of the home; two sons and their wives, Jermaine L. and Honoria Garcia Lambert, Jeremy J. and Blanca Ruiz Lambert all of Bluffton, SC; eight grandchildren, Amore, Katherine, Justin, Jermaine Jr., Edmundo, Malia, Isaiah and Ximena; two sisters, Cheryl Barnes (James) of Pooler, GA and Charlene Daniels (James) of Savannah, GA; one brother: Donald Lambert of Savannah, GA; sister in-laws: Susie “Peggy “Taylor of Beaufort, SC, Ruth Fields and Pauline McNeal  both of Bluffton, SC, Centrita Fields of Beaufort, SC., Rose Taylor and Karen Taylor both of Savannah, GA; three brother’s in-laws: Albert Taylor, Jr. and Earnest Taylor both of Savannah, GA and Henry McNeal of Bluffton; one aunt in-law: Theodoshia T. Wright of Bluffton, SC; and a host of sorrowing cousins, friends and family members
“I’ve had some good days; I’ve had some hills to climb. I’ve had some weary days and some sleepless night. But when I look around and think things over. I know my good days out way my bad days and I won’t complain.”

Offering sincere condolences, no doubt this is a difficult time for the family. May you put trust in the many promises our Heavenly Father says will soon come about and allow that wonderful hope to comfort you in the days ahead. (John 11:25; Ps. 37:29)
