Jerel (Jerry) Lampl
The Family of Jerel (Jerry) Lampl announces with great sorrow his passing on January 19, 2021. He lived a happy, helpful and fun-filled life. He came to Kodiak, Alaska, in the early 1980s. He was a black belt in karate and a great sensei. He enjoyed teaching karate, aikido and judo. Martial arts were a great part of his life since he was 14 years old. This is where he met his wife Penny Lampl. He had his degree in commercial art and enjoyed lettering and painting designs on boats, cars and business signs. Jerry enjoyed working on cars and helping people. Poker was his favorite hobby. He never gave up the chance to do magic, pull a prank or make someone laugh.
He was preceded in death by his brother Wilmar Lampl, sister Agnes Tuite, nieces Carol Leavitte and Louella Bliss, daughter Lori Winfrey, son Casey Gabel and granddaughter Sabrina Gabel.
He will leave behind his family members: wife Penny Lampl, sister-in-law Melissa Austin and her husband William Austin, daughter Tonya Steichen, son Richard Lampl and his wife Lisa Lampl, grandkids Carole Lampl, Rosa Rosenthal, Joshua Lampl, Heather Lampl, Tiahnna Winfrey and Tyreese Winfrey, and many more loved family members and amazing friends.
Because of COVID, there will not be a service at this time. We will be looking into the early or late fall this year. He will be missed dearly by everyone. Cards can be sent to Penny Lampl, PO Box 950, Kodiak AK 99615.
