Charles ("Charlie") Lambros passed away peacefully on Monday, January 22, 2018 at the age of 95 at Wingate Nursing Home in Needham where he joyfully spent the last two years of his life, following many years with friends and helpful neighbors from Chambers and Linden Street. He was extremely grateful for all the caregivers, friends and family who supported him with dignity the past several years and all who offered their companionship, assistance and treats (one of Charlie's guilty pleasures). Charlie was born in Fall River, the son of immigrant parents from Greece, Peter and Bessie (Caralis) Lambros (deceased) and attended Durfee High School. He was a veteran of WWII having proudly served in the Army. He later attended Bryant College and worked for one of the utility companies prior to moving to Boston, marrying and divorcing, but not before welcoming three children. He returned to Needham and worked for many years at the Congregational Church, where the former Rev. and Mrs. Clayton and many congregants became like second family. Although Charlie suffered with bouts of depression throughout his adult life, he maintained a positive attitude, and was a true ecumenical as he found peace reading scripture and worshiping in all faiths. Charlie was particularly generous to children's charities and veterans.

Family gatherings were treasured events, and he had a particular love affair with Greek food. He enjoyed programs at the Senior Center and was a member of the Royal Order of Elks and Beth-horon Masonic Lodge. He loved music and singing and entertained friends crooning to Frank Sinatra. He was recognized around town wearing one of his signature caps to cheer on a favorite team. In the latter years, he enjoyed wintering in sunny Arizona with his son and family.

He is survived by his loving daughter Evelyn (Lambros) Amrhein of West Roxbury and beloved son and daughter-in-law, Christopher and Michelle Lambros of Glendale, Arizona, as well as "Grandpa" to four grandsons, Mathieu, Michael (wife Cristina), Nicholas and Mark, a granddaughter by heart, Diana (husband Ryan), and was thrilled to have recently welcomed his seventh great-grandchild, Evander, to join Christian, Marcy, Liam, LeAna, Nate and Tessa. He also leaves several beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, a son-in-law and dear friends including his Wingate Nursing Home family. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Maria, and siblings Aphrodite ("Dolly") Couyou, and brother James ("the Greek") Lambros.

In lieu of donations, please remember him in personal reflection of your choice and spend a day with a child, veteran or senior citizen.

A private memorial will be held at the Massachusetts National Cemetery, Bourne.
