Stuart Andru Lampe, born May 4, 1965 passed away May 27, 2019.
The family called him Andy and his friends in later life called him Stuart as he preferred. Andy grew up in Buckhead and attended Miriam Heiskell Elementary School, Mount Vernon Academy Middle School, and Woodward Academy High School. Stuart was a 1989 graduate of the University of Georgia with a degree in Textiles and Marketing. Upon graduation, he received a Realtor’s License and affiliated with Buckhead Brokers. With an enjoyment of golf, his work also turned in this direction and Stuart worked for Cantebury Golf Club in Marietta for many years, until the course was closed and developed by John Weiland. Stuart also worked for two years in New York City learning video editing in the early days of music videos. He moved to North Georgia and Lake Burton with his elderly parents, Dr. Stuart and Marjorie Lampe, to help care for them in their later years.
Andy enjoyed cooking, gardening, golfing and had an extensive collection of miniature hot wheels, wooden tennis rackets and antique golf clubs. He also had knowledge of and appreciated Mercedes Benz automobiles and Nascar Racing. The love of his life was his cats, of which he had four-named Dottie, Gingerboy, and Patches. The most special cat was a sweet, friendly, rescued, black cat named Neru.
Stuart will be remembered by family, and many friends as the smiling, blonde, adventuresome, third child born late in life to mature parents. They always said Andy “Kept them young” when they mingled with younger families at soccer and baseball games. As a lifelong resident of Atlanta and North Georgia, he had many friends and always knew someone wherever he went!
Stuart Andru Lampe will be greatly missed by all and is survived by two sisters Sherry Lampe Mather (John) of North Port Florida and Bonnie Lampe Owings (Rick) of Roswell, Georgia. Andy was an uncle to Lauren Vejjajiva, Douglas Barrineau, Sally Chasteen, Taylor Owings, and Davis Owings; and a great uncle to Kai Vejjajiva, Emma Chasteen, Rhys Vejjajiva, and Harper Chasteen.
May Andy rest in peace and know he was loved by all.
