Myron Keith Lambert, the son of Charles Lambert Jr. and Darlene Chaske was born on April 1, 1969, at Devils Lake ND. He attended school at St. Michael’s Little Flower and the Wahpeton Indian School where he graduated from the 8th grade in May of 1983. He also received a Leadership Award of Honor from the school in May of 1982. 

Myron was at one time married to Tonda Shaw and together proudly raised their family. 

Myron earned his GED from Kicking Horse Job Corp in Montana and put the skills he learned there to use in the various positions he held in North Dakota. He worked as a flagger for a local road construction company, as a Spirit Lake Fire Fighter, in surveillance and management at the Spirit Lake Casino and most recently at Simplot in Grand Forks. Some of his management and leadership skills were due to time spent with Paul Matheny when they worked in the Dominican Republic. 

Myron found joy in carpentry and took great satisfaction in creating and building various projects throughout his life. In younger years he enjoyed hunting and playing pool. 

Above all, Myron cherished time spent with his dear family and many good friends who will always remember him with love.
