Ronald Eugene Lamp, 70, of Wellington, died Friday, October 25, 2019 at Mercy Allen Hospital. Born on November 27, 1948 in Cumberland, MD, he was the son of the late Roy and Grace (nee Crowe) Lamp. Ronald lived many years in Morgantown, WV, before moving to Wellington in 1999.
Ronald served in the United States Army. Most recently he was a supervisor with Shiloh Industries, and prior to that had been a coal miner in West Virginia for nearly 20 years. He was a member of the AmVets and of Green Pastures Baptist Church in Oberlin. Ronald was very proud of his 1939 Ford which he restored and also enjoyed hunting. Most of all Ronald cherished his family, his beloved dog Diddle, and especially spending time with his grandchildren.
Survivors include his loving wife of 49 years, Fran (nee Biser) Lamp; his sons Wade (Debbie) Lamp, of Sullivan, and Brad (Stefanie) Lamp, of Lodi; grandchildren Chris (Ashley) Lamp, Tristan, Madison, and Alex Lamp; great grandchildren Alaynna and Carter; siblings Norma Lee Pfister, Raymond Lamp, Darlene Kielczewski, Kevin Lamp, and Elly Bauer; numerous nieces and nephews, as well as many brothers and sisters-in-law.
