Dexter Lambert

dexter lambert

Mr. Dexter Bennie Lambert of Robbins went to his heavenly home on March 9, 2023. He was 91 years old and the last child of Eli Walter Lambert and Laura (Kennedy) Lambert. 

Dexter was born August 19, 1931, and lived his entire life in Robbins. He worked in textile mills in both Robbins and Siler City. He was also a poultry grower and farmer. He enjoyed working in his vegetable garden and shared its bounty with family and friends. Following retirement, he worked with Moore County Solid Waste and Recycling. There he enjoyed renewing old friendships and making new ones. 

Dexter was a lifelong member of Acorn Ridge Baptist Church. Brought to church as a child, he was later saved and served the Lord in many ministries as long as he was physically able. Dexter was a simple, humble, and caring man who was always grateful for whatever he had. 

He was preceded in death by his wife of 61 years, Mozelle Williams Lambert. He is survived by his children: daughter, Linda Lambert Williamson and husband, Pastor John Williamson of Robbins and his son, Gary Dexter Lambert and wife Jan (Ritter) Lambert, also of Robbins. 

Dexter was proud and thankful for his grandchildren: Jonathan Williamson, Timothy Williamson and wife Heather, Aaron Lambert, Michael Williamson, and Laura Jordan and husband Tyler. He found special blessings in his three great- grandchildren, Tyler Williamson, Sarah Williamson, and Maggie Williamson. He will be greatly missed by his little dog, Millie. 

Funeral service will be 11 AM, Saturday, March 11, 2023 at Acorn Ridge Baptist Church, with Dr. John Williamson and Reverend Ronald McNeil officiating.  Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

The family would like to thank Lauren, Emily and Neil of FirstHealth Hospice for the love and care they showed Mr. Lambert, his last nine months.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to First Health Hospice. 251 Campground Rd. West End, NC 27376.

Memories Timeline


  1. My Uncle Dexter was a wonderful very special man. He loved his family and generated his friendly personality to everyone. He will be greatly missed.

  2. What a wonderful man Uncle Dex was. I loved talking to him anytime I went to the dump. Daddy loved having him for a friend. I know they are talking beat-the-band in heaven!

  3. Dexter always made it a point to talk with me when I stopped by the collection site or if I saw him around Town. He was always friendly and humble. He will be missed. Prayers for the family while you grieve his passing. Neil Wolfe and family.

  4. Prayers for the family of Dexter Lambert. He was always nice to us. He was faithful in serving at Acorn Ridge. He is already missed from greeting you at the door of the Church and he will continue to be missed. I am glad his suffering is over and He has now gone to be with the Lord. Family keep trusting the Lord for comfort, help and strength in the days ahead!!

  5. Gary, Linda and the rest of the family, so sorry for your loss. Prayers for God to comfort you all now and in the days to come. Love Paula Garner Lineberry

  6. My Daddy, Dougie Garner, really enjoyed talking with his old friend, Dexter! As Helen has stated, I’m sure they had a wonderful reunion! May God comfort the family at this time.

  7. Great Uncle Dexter was a Great Uncle! I remember all the times we spent hunting and fishing and farming with him PaPa (Leo) Maness and Daddy (Edward L Maness). I can still remember getting to drive his white Apache Chief truck in the field picking corn.

    I know that he is with Jesus in Heaven! He is there with all the family and friends have gone on before.

  8. Dexter will be missed in our neighborhood, he was a good friend and neighbor. He is in Heaven rejoicing with the ones who are there waiting.

    Our deepest love and sympathy to the family. Rest well, our friend, until we meet again.

  9. Our prayers are with you at this time. The Lord has called another Angel home.
    May God Bless each of you.

  10. Sorry for your loss. Praying that God will be with you during this time and in the days ahead.

  11. Uncle Dec was one of a kind! I loved hearing him tell stories about growing up “in the good ole days” when life was hard but appreciated. He had a soothing voice that made you want to sit and listen. He had a twinkle in his blue eyes and a beautiful smile. He enjoyed “picking” (joking) with us kids. Mom and I always liked to visit with him during her trips to NC. We’ll certainly miss those earthly visits but know we’ll see him in glory one day.
    God bless Linda and Gary and the families.

  12. Uncle Deck was a wonderful man and was an example to his family. He was a simple man, but he loved his family, friends and neighbors. I have fond memories of hunting and fishing with him and my Papaw, Leo Maness. He and my dad, Edward Maness, basically grew up together as they were on 3 years apart in age. We will surely miss his smile and whit, we know where he is, in his Heavenly home. Our prayers go out to all the family for the coming days for comfort and peace.

  13. Thoughts and prayers are with the family. Sorry for your loss. Love & prayers
