Our deepest condolences to the Lambie family. We had the privilege of knowing Turtle for almost 20 years. A lot of golf rounds and cribbage games. Never had a bad thing to say, and was always a true gentleman.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I knew Thurston from Kobussen, he filled in for about 3 weeks for another driver and we talked everyday. He was very kind and will be greatly missed. God's Blessings to you all!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear Lambie Family: Although we have not met you, we feel like we know you from talking with Turtle. He was so proud of his kids and grandkids. Wrestling on the road will never be quite the same without him, He took such an interest in the kids and will miss visiting with him. What a great man..RIP

My deepest condolences to Delores and the whole Lambie family on your loss. I have to share a "Turtle" story with you. I was the Treasurer at North Shore for quite a few years and worked closely with Turtle in the maintenance challenges he faced keeping the old place running. We got to be close friends. But he would always call me "Mr Schmitz". I would tell him that we were friends and he could just call me "Larry". He would laugh and say "That is just the way George and Toni trained me". What a class act !! Larry Schmitz

Delores, Kevin, Scott and families. Please accept my sincere sympathy on your loss. I am truly saddened to learn of Turtle's death. He was a terrific person and will be missed. There are so many memories and stories that we all can share. He sponsored and supported the Countryside ladies bowling teams for many years. I was fortunate enough to be part of that and to have spent many enjoyable hours partying with the best people! I hope that him and Earl meet up in heaven and share a cocktail together.

While I only got to know him for a short time while at Kobussen he truly had a kind heart and was such a genuinely nice man. I was so sorry to hear of your family's loss. You are all in my prayers.
JC left a message on February 6, 2017:
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one, Thurston. May you find comfort in the words written at John 6:40, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection. In the future He will completely eliminate our enemy, death.(Revelation 21:4) This gives us the marvelous hope of being reunited with our loved ones, forever. Until then, I hope the wonderful memories of Thurston and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.

I was so saddened to hear about Thurston's passing this morning, I had heard about his accident from one of the employee's last week and could not believe this could happen to such a special person. I will miss seeing him at the terminal when I was in town for work. He always had time for a smile and brief chat as we met. May god bless him and all his family
