In 1950, Lambert started working for Mor-Gran-Sou Electric Coop, where he worked for 28 years, while also operating his own business, Dressler Electric. Lambert worked very hard to provide for his family. He loved to fish in his retirement years, as well as work on his beautiful Christmas light display. Their house in Flasher was decorated from top to bottom for everyone to enjoy for the holiday season. Lambert was known for his great sense of humor, always joking, laughing, and kidding around. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. He touched many people's lives both young and old. Lambert is survived by his wife of 73 years, Aurora, Bismarck; his 12 children, Darlene (Vernon) Erickson, Elgin, Harlan (Mildred) Dressler, Rapid City, SD, Ronald (Lorraine) Dressler, Bismarck, Lois (Bryan), Vandenburg, Flasher, Larry (Joyce) Dressler, Tyler, TX, Charlene (Jim) Scheetz, Bismarck, Diane (Richard) Friesz, Bismarck, Carol (Mark) Sinclair, Chaska, MN, Jim (Sandy) Dressler, Las Vegas, NV, Ed (Cheryl) Dressler, Bismarck, Brenda (Dave) Meyer, Flasher, and Rick (Val) Dressler, Bismarck; 35 grandchildren, 61 great-grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren; brothers, Louie, Al, and Butch; one sister-in-law, Katherine Dressler; and one brother-in-law, Bob Friesz. He was preceded in death by his parents; his grandson, Shane Dressler; his sisters, Peggy Leintz and Rose Friesz; and his brother, Ralph Dressler. The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you and will be forever grateful for the wonderful care that the Primrose Staff have provided for Lambert and Aurora.
