Mr. Lampo graduated from Northwestern State College in Natchitoches, LA in 1946 with a degree in chemistry/pre-med. He was a member of Phi Mu Alpha national honorary musical fraternity and the cheerleading squad. He was a talented musician who played the coronet.

Mr. Lampo retired from Crosby Chemicals, which later became Westvaco, in DeRidder after 47 years where he served as chief research chemist. There he developed numerous products and compounds, several of which were patented by the U.S. Patent Office. He was also an entrepreneur who developed a pine-based cleaning product called Sanico, which he distributed throughout the south.

He was a lifelong member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church where he served for many years as an altar boy, usher, and lecturer, and where he was a charter member of perpetual adoration devotion and a member of the Legion of Mary. He also taught CCD classes to junior high school students. Mr. Lampo was a recipient of the St. Joseph's medal for 47 years of service to the church.

Mr. Lampo was also a long-standing member of the local chapter of the Knights of Columbus where he achieved the fourth degree and held the position of past Grand Knight. He was a past chairman of the Boy Scouts of America Scout-O-Rama and served as chairman of the Beauregard Parish chapter of the American Red Cross. He was an officer in the local chapter of the American Cancer Society and a charter member of Beauregard Country Club. He enjoyed working at the concessions booth of the Impromptu Players community theater group. Mr. Lampo was considered by many to be a local historian for Beauregard Parish for his many stories about growing up and living in the area.
