ARLX001 Rhode Island Section Manager Armand Lambert, K1FLD, SK

A memorial service is set for January 12 for Rhode Island ARRL
Section Manager Armand E. Lambert, K1FLD. Lambert died December 31,
2001, at his home in Woonsocket following a lengthy illness. He was
58.

''Armand was one of the nicest people I've ever met, and he was a
steady hand as Rhode Island Section Manager,'' said New England
Division Director Tom Frenaye, K1KI. ''He was someone who really left
the world better as a result of his efforts.''

In 1999, Lambert outpolled two other candidates to succeed Rick
Fairweather, K1KYI, who did not run for another term. He also had
served as an ARRL VEC volunteer examiner. An ARRL member, Lambert
was a regular participant in the New England Division cabinet
meetings and, on Field Day, he made it a practice to visit as many
sites in Rhode Island as possible. He also was president of the
Blackstone Valley Amateur Radio Club.

Lambert's wife, Simone, KA1YVF, reported that Armand had suffered a
recurrence of kidney cancer nine weeks ago which was untreatable and
that he passed on peacefully on New Year's Eve.

The memorial service will be held Saturday, January 12, 2:30 PM at
Lafayette Masonic Temple Lodge, Nate Whipple Highway, Arnold Mills,
Cumberland, Rhode Island.

A successor as Rhode Island's SM will be appointed to complete
Lambert's term of office.
