COMMERCE — A memorial service for Richard Ervin Lampe, 64, of Commerce will be conducted at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012, at the Student Center Conference Room of Texas A&M University-Commerce with Dr. Lavelle Hendricks officiating. Dr. Lampe passed away peacefully at his home with loving family at his side, Monday, Oct. 29, 2012.

He was born Oct. 31, 1947, in Oklahoma, the son of Ervin and Dorothy Nemec Lampe. He was married to Susan Gish Lampe on Aug. 11, 1979, in Stillwater, Okla.

Dr. Lampe was Professor Emeritus of Counseling at Texas A&M University-Commerce for 22 years. In his career, he received the TACD Presidential Award for Leadership as chair of accreditation by the Certification Committee, was the TACES president from 1986-1987, received the Texas Association of College Teachers Award and Neill Humfeld Distinguished Faculty Teaching Award for 1991-1992.

In 1992, Richard led the Counseling Department CACREP self-study for  accreditation for his department, and was also the ACA Southern Region chairman and governing councilman from 1994-1995.

 He was awarded with the TAMU-Commerce Faculty Senate Distinguished Faculty Award for Service in May 2006. He also received the Truax Award from TCA in 2009.

In addition to Richard’s distinguished professional life, he was a devoted and loving father and husband. He had a great passion for architectural design and decorating, gardening and the art of watercolor painting. In his time away from the University he made numerous home improvements and was considered by his family and friends to be a master chef, for he loved cooking, baking especially. Richard also enjoyed traveling and exploring the world with his family.
