Conor Lambert Death, Obituary – Yesterday, we were given the tragic news that our close friend and fellow club member Connor Lambert had gone suddenly as a result of injuries he had incurred in a training accident in Belgium. We are still reeling from the shock and anguish that we felt at hearing the news, and we are still a member of the club. Connor was an exceptionally great person who also had a fervor for riding that inspired those who were around him to develop a similar enthusiasm for the sport.
The sport of cycling took up a significant portion of Connor’s life, and each time he participated in a race, he did it with unflinching fervor and determination. Connor’s participation in the Irish national championships required him to make frequent trips to that country. In addition to taking part in a number of road events that were held in different parts of the nation, he also competed in the Ràs in 2018.
This was all a part of his preparation for his major goals. It was always a pleasure to see him, and we got to know him very well and looked forward to spending time in his company. He maintained constant communication with the club and came out on several of our club rides to meet up with everyone over a cup of coffee and a chat.
We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Eugene and Michelle, as well as the rest of the family, on the loss of their son, Connor, who passed away in an unfortunate accident. I pray that Connor is finally at peace, and that the force of nature always works to his advantage.
