POSTED: 03/21/14 6:44 PM

Mr. Julius Lambert was born on August 4, 1947, and passed away on March 15, 2014, at the age of 67.

We will always remember him as a family man, friend and a true patriarch of St. Maarten.

Through his life he was a living testament of what hard work, determination and perseverance could achieve.

In 1970 he started his career at OGEM (now known as GEBE) as an intern. In 1981 he entered into service of Utility Services and was stationed on St. Maarten, his place of birth.

In March of 1985 Mr. Julius Lambert was promoted to assistant General Manager.

He also served as acting General Manager from 1985 to 1995, through his character he continued working tirelessly and was appointed Managing Director in 1995.

GEBE thrived under the watchful eye of Mr. Julius Lambert, throughout his career and life the same dedication was extended to Saba and Statia.

After thirty five years at the helm as leader in various capacities Mr. Julius Lambert retired as Managing Director of GEBE and went on pension in 2005, he return to work as supervisory director of GEBE until 2014.

On November 2nd 2001 Mr. Julius Lambert accepted the post of treasurer on the board of the Emilio Wilson Historical and Cultural Foundation (EWHCF).

This foundation was established for the upkeep and development of the Emilio Wilson Park.

At the time of the inauguration of EWHCF, the members at large were Mr. Dennis Richardson, Mr. Julius Lambert, Mr. Mathias Voges, Mr. Frank Arnell, Mr. Richard Gibson Senior, Mr. Ron Bizot, Mr. André Patrick, Mrs. Amorette Hodge-Maccow and Valerie Giterson.

Mr. Allan Busby also served as an associate committee member when functions were held at the park.

At this difficult time we would like to extend our sympathy to his wife, his children, extended family, friends and well wishes of St. Maarten who are left to mourn the loss of a dignified, patriotic son of the soil Mr. Ir. Julius A Lambert.

Amorette Hodge-Maccow

On behalf of the board of the Emilio Wilson Foundation
