Scores of state troopers and law enforcement personnel from across Illinois and the United States attended Lambert's Catholic funeral Mass at Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington. Gov. J.B. Pritzker, state police Director Leo Schmitz and Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul were among state officials who attended.
Lambert, a five-year veteran of Illinois State Police District 15, was struck and killed by a vehicle on a snowy late afternoon Jan. 12 after he stopped to assist people involved in a three-car crash on I-294 near Willow Road. The 34-year-old trooper was off duty and on his way home to Highland Park.
