Michael Stefan Lambert was born August 6, 1949, in Atlanta, GA and passed away after a brief illness on August 24. A longtime resident of the northeast Georgia area, he enjoyed his status as a local legend who taught martial arts to a countless number of people over nearly 50 years.  He loved books, music, film, travel and the great outdoors.


He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph Buford Lambert and Lou Lambert of Murrayville. He is survived by his beloved children, Christopher Lambert of  IN, Vanessa Fawley of Hoschton and Griffin Lambert of Gainesville; two daughters-in-law, Kerri Lambert and Christina Lambert and a son-in-law, Zack Fawley who he loved as though they were his own; his grandchildren, Jack, Natalie, Violet, Arlo and Lucy, who were all his favorites and his sisters Mary and Carol who were his lifelong best friends; 2 nieces, 4 great-nephews and 3 great-nieces.

He is also survived by an innumerable number of friends because Mike never met a stranger.  He will be deeply missed and fondly remembered.
