Martinez Lambert Obituary

Mr. It is with an unspeakable blend of sadness and humor that I, Martinez Tennell Lambert, also known as T'NEZ, bid you farewell. As the humble man I was, I've always appreciated the simple things in life

. I was born to Patricia Nelson and Leroy Lambert on November 19, 1983, in South Bend, IN, USA, and it is here that I spent my 39 years, learning, loving, laughing, and playing my part in this grand opera of life. As the Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw once said, "Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh." And so, I invite you to remember me with a smile, for I was, indeed, a funny man. I was a man who was smart enough to know that my greatest wealth was my family.

To my beautiful daughters Martiana, Montrice, Janiyah, and Marshayla; my strong sons Martinez Jr., Josiah, Tennell, and Tyler; my loving brother Martez, my funny sister Shayla, my smart brothers Marcus and Marque, and my ever-loving sister-in-law Chloe, I say thank you. My life was indescribably richer for having shared it with all of you. To my Aunt Kimberly, Aunt Catrice and her husband Timothy, Aunt Darnette and her husband Perry, and Uncle Pernell, your love and support have always been my anchor. I am also grateful to my grandmother Hester Pollard, whose wisdom and warmth helped shape the man I became. Outside family, my love for drawing was a hobby that brought me immense joy. It's funny how a simple piece of paper and a pencil could create an entire universe. It was a reflection of my life, a life well-lived, filled with joy, sorrow, triumphs, and lessons. I was a loving man, a smart man, a funny man, and a humble man. And it is these qualities that I hope you remember about me.

As the poet Maya Angelou said, "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." I hope I made you all feel loved, cherished, and valued because you all were to me. I invite you all to leave your favorite memories of me and upload photos on my memorial page.

Let's continue to celebrate life, just as I did throughout my time here. After all, as the saying goes, "Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a ride!'" So, remember me, and let's keep the ride going.
