Tim Lambert

Tim Lambert was a retired Easton police officer and an active Easton School District Resource Officer.  In October, 2008 Tim and his daughter, Taylor, were tragically killed in a motorcycle accident traveling home from a BMW motorcycle club event in New York.  Tim was a Cubmaster for Cub Scout Pack 29 in Forks Township and an active member within the Scouting District.  He was very passionate about the Scouting program and always had a positive attitude towards everything and everyone.  His son, Sean, earned the rank of Eagle Scout Boy Scout in 2013 with Troop 29 of Forks Township.


This event will benefit the local Boy Scouts of America by supporting the Scouting programs in your community that Tim cherished so deeply.
