Jeffrey Alan Lampe, Age 58, was born in Sacramento California on February 2nd, 1961, to Alan William Lampe and Sharon Gae (Adams) Lampe. It is with profound sadness that we share that Jeff left us on Tuesday, November 5th, in Afton, Wyoming. Background: The Lampe family moved from California to Star Valley, Wyoming, in 1969, when Jeff was 8 years old. Jeff loved the outdoors and enjoyed growing up in the mountains, hunting, and fishing with friends and family. He attended Star Valley High School, where he was a bit of a rebel, enjoyed partying with his friends up the canyons surrounding the valley, and graduated in 1979. He joined the Wyoming National Guard. He attended the University of Wyoming briefly before moving back to California to further his education (both formal, and informal). He worked many jobs through the years, starting at age 15, moving irrigation pipe. At age 18, he went to work for Lampe Brothers, Inc., logging with his father, uncle, and cousin. He then moved to Northern California where he certified as a commercial diver and underwater welder. In the 1980s he settled in Southern California, where he married, raised three children, and worked for over 30 years. He worked professionally as a real estate appraiser and broker. In 2014, he moved back to Wyoming and worked intermittently in North Dakota and Texas, in the oil industry. He loved spending time with his parents in Baja, California, during the wintertime, and made many friends in Punta Chivato, Baja California Sur. Jeff always made friends so easily, wherever he went. He always lived life to the fullest, and on his own terms. He spent his last summer with friends and family in Wyoming.
Jeff is survived by his parents, Al and Sherri, brother Greg, ex-wife, Susie, and their three adored children, Tyler, Brice, and Jenna.
A celebration of life will be held in Jeff’s honor next summer, in Afton, Wyoming.
