June 3, 1936 – August 7, 2019
Loudon------Shirly W. Lampron 83 (“Girlie” to his friends), lifelong resident of Loudon, passed away on August 7, 2019.
Born June 3, 1936 to Paul E. (Sr.) and Mildred (Towle) Lampron. He graduated from Concord High School in 1954, joined the Army Reserve in 1955 and served until 1964. Shirly was dedicated to service and specifically to the town and neighbors he loved which included: joining the Loudon Fire Department in 1953 and serving for more than 50 years, joining the Loudon Police Department in 1964 and serving through 1973; becoming tax collector from 1964 through 1973; serving as the Loudon Congregational Church Building Committee Treasurer for three years as well as serving as a Deacon; joining fellow neighbors and Police Officers to build the “old” Loudon Police Department and Court House in 1967; serving as Auditor for the Town of Loudon for four years; serve as Auxiliary Deputy Sheriff for three years; serving as a Boy Scout Leader for over five years; assisting friends build a memorial – the Art McNeil Gazebo – to honor a good friend; and serving on the Board for the John O. Cate Memorial Van. Shirly worked for Concord Electric for more than 14 years and retired as an Auditor from the NH Department of Revenue.
Shirly wanted to know what was happening in “his” town and to “his” neighbors and was always there to lend a helping hand. He was raised with the belief that we should all help thy neighbors. This translated into years of helping out on local farms (Ashland Farm, Lampron Farm, and Storrs Farm to name a few) as well as assisting friends and neighbors fill their wood sheds for the winter months.
Shirly enjoyed anything old time country music, tv shows and western movies. He was also an avid Red Sox fan and enjoyed NASCAR. His favorite driver being Dale Ernhardt Sr. of course. Shirly also loved being a part of and cooking for the Harley Davidson Rendezvous with his local friends. Above all family was most important.
Shirly is survived by his daughter, Sharon Drake and her husband Kerry of Loudon, his grandson, Scott P. of Tilton, his brother Dean E. Lampron and wife Robin of Webster, and several nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his “other” kids, Debbie Dyment of Concord and Cathy Dyment of Florida. He was known to many as “Uncle Shirly” or Grandpa. In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by his son Neil P. of Loudon, and brothers Paul Jr., Bruce H., and Neil.

Shirl you will be truly missed. I am thankful for the opportunity to have gotten to know you over all these years. From being one of your caregivers to being your “date” for the Deerfield Fair every year. We always had a great time and a lot of laughs. I miss singing old classic country songs with you and you sitting outside my office telling me to get to work! I am hoping your kicking back in heaven, no longer confined to that wheelchair enjoying a Johnny Walker and giving them hell. Rest easy buddy.

We will miss Bumpa very much. Always had a smile and ready for a joke. Many good memories of time spent with him - our annual Old Home Day tour of Loudon, selling raffle tickets at the nursing home, eating tripe (yuck), walking with Jack, watching NASCAR and cheering for Jeff Gordon (right?), building an addition at Sharon and Kerry's house and saying oh well Bumps can't see it from there and so many more. Sharon and Kerry your kindness and caring for Bumpa is why he will always be smiling at you. We love you, Glenn, Buddy and Fancy
