Ronnie Lamprecht, 54, passed away suddenly on March 27, 2022, at his home in Richfield, Utah. He was born in Richfield on May 18, 1967 to Laone “Curly” and Raeola Manwill Lamprecht. He was welcomed into a home with five siblings: Deanna, Connie, Larry, Gary and Jeff.
He married Melanie Crane in June, 1988. Together they brought a beautiful baby girl into their lives. She was his whole world! They were later divorced.
Ronnie was a truck driver and an EMT for Sevier County for many years. While serving as an EMT, he was the first one on the scene for many calls, always ready to help anyone in need—even performing life saving measures for a cat. He was named the EMT of the year. He was able to teach and share his love of service with others during EMT classes and he actually had the opportunity to teach his daughter La’Tisha and welcome her into EMT service. After she completed the course, they had the opportunity to work side by side.
He loved everything about being outdoors. You could find him driving around looking for rabbits or spotting the next season’s deer/elk. He spent many Easter weekends camping with his family. He was excited to share his trailer with his daughter and her family. He enjoyed spending Christmas at his daughter’s house, no matter how many times he got sent back to bed. He was still always the first one up and ready to wake the kids. His grandkids loved spending Christmas and birthdays with “Papa Lamprecht”. He will be greatly missed.
Ronnie is survived by his daughter, La’Tisha (Cooper) Wood, Lyman; 3 grandchildren; siblings: Deanna Manwell, Larry Lamprecht, Gary Lamprecht and Jefery Lamprecht. Preceded in death by his parents; step-father, Garth Cox; sister, Connie Pollock; and beloved dog “Rowdy”.
Graveside services will be held Friday, April 1, 2022 at 1:30 p.m. in the Richfield City Cemetery. Friends may call at the Magleby Mortuary in Richfield from 12:00 Noon to 1:00 p.m.
