George A. Lambert, Lake Ariel, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday afternoon at home in the loving arms of his wife, the former Susan Swingle. They would have celebrated 50 years of marriage in July.


He was born Feb. 6, 1951, in Scranton, Pa., to the late George A. and Rose Mae Reed Lambert. George was a graduate of the former Scranton Technical High School and went on to study at the Zion Bible Institute.

George loved God and served him in every aspect of his life. He was gifted with a deep faith and servant’s heart, which he yearned to share with others. He attended Cross Road Assembly of God where he was often seen raising his hands and praising Jesus through song. He served as Deacon, youth leader and sang proudly as a member of the church choir and quartet at his former church at Hamlin Assembly of God. He retired from RCA/Thomson.

George loved his family fiercely, enjoyed photography, fishing and camping. His joy was contagious and one simply could not leave his side without having shared in it.

He is survived by his daughters, Jodie Cole and husband, Ryan, of Eldersburg, Md.; Amy Williams and husband, Scott, of Moscow; and Kristie Highhouse and husband, Daniel, of Lake Ariel; two sisters, Rosemary Briscese, of Waymart; and Nancy Cummings, of Scranton; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law; nieces and nephews. Also surviving are those of whom he was so proud to call his grandchildren, Emma and Jackson Cole, Kyrah, Raegan, Tristyn and Abram Williams, Peyton and Bentley Highhouse.
