Nicholas Lampe Education Fund

As many of you know, Jim Lampe passed away suddenly this past Friday May 5th. In lieu of flowers, his friends and family are asking for donations to an education fund to benefit his young son, Nicholas. Donations will be deposited into a savings account in Nicholas' name. Your love and support are greatly appreciated during this difficult time for Paula and her family.

For those of you that didn’t know Jim well, he loved the outdoors and was passionate about boating, kayaking, camping, hiking and enjoying the outdoors. Last Friday, Jim enjoyed a nice morning with his wife, Paula, and son Nicholas, not knowing he would not see them again. He spend the beautiful afternoon paddling on the water with 2 of his close friends, doing what he loved. As they were packing up for the day, Jim collapsed. His friends did their best to revive him but were unable to restart his heart.

Of course this was not part of his plan for his young family and he will be greatly missed. Nicholas will need support in the coming years that Jim had planned to provide. If you are looking for a way to help or support the family, this will help in more ways than you can imagine.
