John Lambert

John A. Lambert passed away Feb. 4, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer.

John was born on Sept. 20, 1982 in Sidney, Neb. He was raised and attended schools in Haxtun. John established numerous bands throughout his life, most notably, 13 Nails, who toured and played with nationally recognized bands. His proudest moment as a musician was performing at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go in Los Angeles, Calif. 13 Nails has composed songs that have been featured in films.

He started his career at Recycled Cycles 12 years ago as a builder and worked his way up to General Manager. He was proud to contribute to the growth of the company. He was also very passionate about fundraising and supporting the music and arts program at EasterSeals in Loveland as well as building the local music community. He loved music of all kinds and horror movies and books - he had knowledge of all things horror. He was also a gifted painter and cherished the time he spent with his daughters, wife and family.
