Anthony William Lamp, known to his friends as "Tony," passed away suddenly at home in Anchorage, Alaska, on Thursday, May 10, 2018, at the age of 62 years.
Born on Dec. 6, 1955, in Watertown, S.D., and known as "Tony the Tiger" as a child, he would often bring home caged birds and other assorted stray pets. Tony had a love of car racing, enjoyed playoff hockey and was a loyal Chicago Cubs fan, excitedly cheering them on as they won the World Series in 2016.
Tony was employed as a Heavy Duty Mechanic on Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson, in Anchorage, and had proudly worked with the Civil Service for just over 21 years.
Tony had been married to his wife, Rhonda Lamp, for 26 years. In those years, Tony was a proud supporter and ally of the LGBT community, most recently supporting his wife, who is the current Empress of All Alaska, representing and fundraising for the communities of Alaska and beyond.
Tony is survived by his wife, Rhonda "Hunny" Lamp; and two sons, Ian Lamp and spouse Sarah Telgenhoff, and Caleb Lamp and spouse Shiloh Brady.
Tony leaves behind his brother, Patrick Lamp, along with Patrick's wife Laurie, who he saw as more of a sister, and their daughters and his nieces, who he viewed more as daughters, Krista McDonald and Brittany Stepp and their spouses. Tony also leaves behind his great-nephews, who he regarded as grandchildren, Eli, Isaac and Joshua McDonald.
Tony is survived by nine sisters and another brother, Cecilia Elliott, Sara Bever, Gabrielle Scriver, Mary Kramer, Nanette Hooper, Fran Jugan, April Dryden, Julie Reece, Emmalee Bishop and brother, Howard Lamp. Tony's extended family includes 28 nieces and nephews and 32 great-nieces and great-nephews. Tony also precedes his father-in-law, Henry Pierce of Senatobia, Miss.; sisters-in-law, Pam Burton of Senatobia, and Melissa Paul of Nesbit, Miss.; as well as nephews by marriage, Hank and David Burton.
Tony is preceded in death by his father, Cecil Lamp; his mother, Patricia Lamp; and his mother-in-law, June Pierce.
A Celebration of Life for Tony will be held on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Megan Room, 6591 A Street in Anchorage, and again on Sunday, May 20, 2018, at 5 p.m. at Mad Myrna's, 530 East Fifth Avenue in Anchorage.
