December 12, 1941 — November 24, 2017

John F. Lampkins Sr., 75, passed away of a sudden illness in his home on Friday morning November 24, 2017.

John was born December 12, 1941 in Hazard, Kentucky to Marion and Frona (Baird) Lampkins. Shortly after his family moved to the Marshall County area. He graduated from Tyner High School with the class of 1959.

John worked for McCord’s for over 30 years, took a few years off, and then returned to work for Indiana Heat, as a silver solder. Retirement came 10 years later. Beverly and he loved taking motorcycle rides together, pulling their trailer and camping in all the states but Alaska and Hawaii.
