Obituary

Willis Lampkin, age 95, of Redfield Arkansas, passed from this life on March 10, 2020. He was born September 9, 1924, in Blocker, Oklahoma, to the late James and Eunice Lampkin. He was pre-deceased in death by his loving wife of 70 years, Geneva Patterson Lampkin; 7 brothers, Leonard, Howard, James, Doyle, Paul, Norris, twin brother, Willard, a sister, Evelyn Aaron, and one grandson, Tony Lampkin. He is survived by 2 brothers, Raymond and Hershel of Amarillo, Texas, and 4 children, Kenny Lampkin, Hooks, Tx; David (Janet) Lampkin, Greers Ferry, AR; Jackie (Rickey) Broach, Redfield, AR; Jerry Lampkin, Greers Ferry, AR; Grandchildren, John Lampkin, Crystal Howell, Matthew Lampkin, Shane Lampkin, Christopher Lampkin, Jackie Lampkin and Heather Lampkin, as well as several great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Mr. Lampkin retired from the Pine Bluff Arsenal and was a World War II veteran. He often told stories of life during the war and the great depression, and what it was like to share crop, chopping cotton, while growing up. He liked to travel and ‘see the country', as he put it, and loved playing dominoes with his kids and grandchildren, and was known as, 'The Oklahoma Kid from Tough Street'. Those games were serious business! He also was known as 'The Lone Wolf and Oľ Will, and there are stories behind those names his family loved to hear. He loved all his family – siblings and their children, and his children and grandchildren - and he loved his town. When he came home from shopping or traveling, he would come through town, saying, 'good old Redfield'. He cared about the people in it. He had martin boxes in his yard and loved watching the martins come and set up house in them every year. He could tell you when they would come, and when they would leave. His greatest joy was listening to his wife play her guitar, and bragged on her to anyone who would listen, and even have her play for guests who visited.
He had a great sense of humor, and made friends wherever he went, and they would always stop one of his kids when they saw them and tell them how much they thought of him and mom. He will forever be loved and missed by all who knew him, especially his family, who called him “dad”, “father-in-law”, and “grandpa”.
Visitation will be Friday, 6 to 8 p.m. at Fuller Hale South. Graveside services by Fuller Hale South will be Saturday, March 14, 2020, 2:00 p.m., at Redfield Cemetery, with Rev. Rickey Broach officiating.
