Christopher James Lambeth, 31, a resident of Daphne AL, passed away on July 5, 2020 along with his lifelong best friend, Richard “Richie” Henderson.”
Chris was born in Mobile, AL and grew up in Daphne, AL. Chris attended Daphne High School where he was a star quarterback for the DHS Trojans, he graduated in 2007. He received a full-ride scholarship to Arkansas State University. To some, Chris may have seemed like a quiet & reserved guy… but to friends & family, Chris was charismatic, lovable and so full of life. Anybody who describes Chris always talks about how he had the biggest heart and how he always put others before himself.
For the past several years he worked his way up at Jani King, a national commercial cleaning company. Just over a year ago, he worked his way to his career goal and became the Regional Director for the Daphne office for Jani King. Chris’ hobbies included fishing, boating, tennis, ping-pong, football and collecting rare coins. He had a smile that was impossible to forget and a laugh that would bring instant joy to your day. He loved being on the water and spending time with his beloved dog, (best friend) Bay. More than anything though, he loved spending time with his family and friends. Chris was a beloved son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend to so many. He will leave an impression on the hearts of every single person who had the honor of knowing him.
Chris leaves behind his mother, Carolyn Lagman Lambeth; brother, Richard Chadwick Lambeth “Chad” (Kelly); sister, Ashley Lambeth Larson; nephews, David Alan Larson III “Trip,” and Mason James “Crosby” Lambeth; niece, Bailey Deborah Larson; maternal grandmother, Betty Jo Lagman; maternal aunt, Elizabeth Cascaden (Roger), maternal uncle, Wayne Lagman (Regina); paternal uncle, Jeff Lambeth (Candy); paternal aunts, Carol Fledderman (Steve), Betty Grant; and many very close cousins, Lauren, Eric, Jennifer, Michael (Melinda), Hannah (Dustin), Morgan, Mallory, Rhonda, David, and Mary; and so many dear friends; and last but definitely not least, his beloved dog and best friend, Bay.
Chris is being welcomed with open arms by his father, James Alva Lambeth Jr.; his paternal grandparents, James Alva Lambeth Sr & Lois Lambeth; maternal grandfather, Louis Richard Lagman; maternal great-grandmother, Bessie Collins; and a cousin, Ricky Godwin.
