Lambert Edward Schires was born in Roseau County on September 7, 1941 to Edward and Susie (Burkel) Schires. He attended Greenbush School and graduated from Greenbush High School in 1959. He married Sharon (Sherry) Peterson on September 16, 1961. Together they had four children: Lisa, Vernon, Karla and Heidi. They lived in Thief River Falls for two years while he worked for Western Oil. They then returned to Greenbush to farm with his father. He also drove a tractor-trailer for David Burkel and was a Dewey Township Clerk for many years.

Lambert was a jack of all trades; if there was anything that needed to be fixed or repaired, he did it. He fielded many late night calls for those in need of furnace repairs and also enjoyed troubleshooting and repairing firearms. His friends knew he rarely left the farm (usually for parts or cigarettes), but they were always welcome. They also knew that if they stopped, they would stay there for a while because Lambert was a bit long. He enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson, was an avid hunter, and loved farm animals (pigs, sheep, cows, goats, etc.)

His wife took good care of him until the end. Lambert passed away peacefully at home, with his family by his side, on June 26, 2022 at the age of 80 years, 9 months and 19 days.

Lambert is survived by his wife, Sherry, children; Lisa (John) Forst of Strathcona, Vernon (Rachel) Schires of Greenbush, Karla (Harley) McMillin of Roseau and Heidi (Jeremy) Karnowski of Greenbush. He is also survived by his grandchildren; Lacey and Lance Forst, Carly (Dillan), Travis and Courtney Schires, Braxton Kjos and Brian (Wendy) and Trevor McMillin, great-grandchildren; Emerson Jenson, Eddie McMillin, Colt Schires and Easton Moser, and his brother-in-law Derald (Carmen) Peterson; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was predeceased by his parents, Edward and Susie, and his step-parents Ned and Adelia Peterson.
