In Memory of

Ronald Jeffrey Lamping

February 24, 1954 - February 1, 2023


Ronald Jeffrey Lamping, 68, of Lee’s Summit, MO left this world peacefully after a long and fierce battle due to a heart attack.

   Jeff was born February 24, 1954 in Kansas City, MO, the son of Richard “Legs” Lamping and Barbara (Chester) McElheney. He was a graduate of De La Salle High School and loved playing linebacker with his fellow “Titans”.  Jeff worked in the printing press industry for over 50 years and was owner of Complete Graphic Services until his retirement early last year. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. His children and grandchildren were his whole life; he was their ROCK. His grandchildren often referred to him as their “Super Hero”. He was always there to lend a hand to anyone who needed help in any way. His sense of humor was constant, and his laugh was contagious. He may have fooled many with his tough exterior, but those who truly knew him would say he was a softie on the inside. In fact his favorite song is “Puff the Magic Dragon”, and no doubt that song was blaring as he entered those pearly gates.

    It’s no secret that Jeff was an avid (and LOUD!) Kansas City Chiefs fan, never missing the opportunity to watch with his family. Those games can never be quite the same without him. To honor his memory, family members will be wearing Chiefs attire to his visitation. Please feel free to do the same. We know he would appreciate that.

   Visitation will be from 4:00-6:00pm Friday, February 10th at Langsford Funeral Home at 115 SW 3rd Street, Lee’s Summit, MO, with no graveside service. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to any children’s charity.

   Jeff was preceded in death by his father, Legs Lamping and mother, Barbara McElheney. He is survived by his beloved spouse and best friend of almost 50 years, Robin, and by his three children, Michelle Margita and other half Rod Brumley, Beverly and husband Mike Callia, Michael Paul and wife Chaney Lamping, and brothers Richard (“Dickie”) Lamping, Gregory (“Darbs”) and wife Janie Lamping, and sister Denise and husband Randy Hearn, six grandchildren (Tanner/Alondra, Tristan, Alex, Skylar, Kayla, and Mya), in-laws Debbie and Greg Trabon and the entire Sloan family, many wonderful nieces/nephews, and Mom Virginia, 96, who always asked “where is my Jeff” on those rare occasions when Robin visited without him. He will be forever missed by so many. Rest in peace, Ronald Jeffrey, as you continue to be our angel watching over us all as we know you will.

Jeff may not be seen, but he will live on in the hearts of so many that loved him.
The best folks always leave their foot print in so many hearts. Love to the friend i have had the longest, and loved so much, Robin.

I am heartbroken for you all! Pops was the best! Always made it feel like home and family when myself and many others i am sure where in his presence! shared many beers and lots of love for our teams( even had the best rivalries with him) I will continue to pray for peace and comfort for the entire family and all his friends during this difficult time! P.s mom and mikki call me if you need me❤️

What a lovely memorial to my big brother Jeff. We will all miss him terribly. May the Lord give all the family strength threw this heartbreakingly time.

Although I did not know Jeff, I have been close to his brother, Darbs and his family. When reading about the fine man Jeff was, I can tell that Darbs and Jeff are one in the same with their bold personalities, bright attitudes and being a sturdy support system for all those around them. My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Lamping family. I truly hope in time you all find peace in this world without your loved one. I am sorry for your loss.

I have know Jeff since he was a teen and got the project started moving Hirschfield Pess in Denver that dragged him into his career in the graphic arts on 1974. Over the years Jeff has been involved in many more projects with me. He dismantled mechanically and electrically, loaded and often reinstalled dozens of machines for mechanical with me. Loaded eighteen shipping containers in Loveland CO that shipped all over the world. We worked together many times ( I’m quite talented fetching tools and cleaning up his messes), all around the country. He worked closely with Dave Nese, David Huddleston and John Haggard over the years and those men and their crews can bear witness. Grumpy but hard working and detailed. You always knew where you stood with Jeff. McDonald’s coffee in the morning with eight creamers, Michelob Ultra, steak potatoes and Cabernet too.
God bless his wife, Robin, who had her hands full caring for her mom before Jeff fell ill. God bless his family; they lost their rudder. I trust they’ll make all necessary repairs and stay on course. Peace

I’m so sorry for your tremendous loss. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. Love to all of you.

I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Jeff. I will always remember him ( Dick and Greg) as part of the neighborhood gang!! So many memories. Sending love and prayers to you all at this difficult time.

Dearest Robin and family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your Jeff. He will be forever loved and forever missed by all! I love you and my prayers are with you and yours!

Michelle and Family,

I am so sorry for your loss, and for the loss to all that experienced Jeff’s smile, laughter, stories, kindness, and love.

There are no words to express my sadness for your pain and hurt.

You are all loved by so very many, and we are here to help in any.


He was one of the coolest dads in the neighborhood not to mention one of the only dads. He was nice to me even though I had a lot of issues as a kid. You guys were lucky and this world lost a kind soul

Oh sweet Jeff. I didn’t get to see you often, but when I did I loved getting those bigger than life hugs of your. You were so comforting when my Larry passed. I’m sure he and many of our clan was there to greet you when you entered those pearly gates. There is going to be one heck of a Super Bowl party in Heaven this year!!! Give my Lar a hug for me!!! Love you and yours forever and always!

Our deepest condolences! We were just talking about making a trip down that way from Sioux Falls. We so enjoyed him when he would come up this way. It’s hard to believe. Lots of love your way!

I taught at De La Salle between 1961 and 1966, and between 1969 until it closed 1971. I will keep Jeffery in my prayers. Br. Louis

He was a good friend and I looked forward to him coming to see me at the plant. And not always just for the free lunch which was always a bonus. Worked with him for years and he always was very uplifting in his special way. I will miss you old friend. My prayers of peace for the family.

So sad to hear about Jeff’s passing, I will always remember him as that nice guy who I met 30 years ago in Kansas city and stayed in contect since then, always smiling, always working, the kind of gentleman that you know you can seal a deal with a handshake.

So sad since he was still young.

Always quick to smile with a quick wit and i used to love hearing him banter with Harv and Bear! He will be missed, my heart goes out to the family and my prayers are with you Robin and the rest of the family.
