William Warner Lamph, Ph.D.

August 19, 1952 - December 13, 2020

Dr. William (Bill) Warner Lamph died December 13, 2020 in Millcreek, Utah.

Bill was born on August 19, 1952 in Artesia, California; the son of Elroy M. Lamph and Marva Warner Lamph.

Bill graduated from the University of Utah and received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin, McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research.  He performed postdoctoral oncology research at the Salk Institute in San Diego, California.

Bill spent many years in cancer research and published numerous studies in cancer research journals.  He also volunteered his time with many professional cancer research institutions.  Bill was always willing to share his knowledge with cancer patients and many of us benefited greatly from his counsel.

We remember Bill as an adventurer, astronomer, explorer, scuba diver, fisherman, photographer, and traveler.  A few of his favorite travels were to Amsterdam and Paris.  He also enjoyed exploring the deserts of Southern Utah and California.

He was an avid astronomer.  He was always telling us about the next event in space and setting up one of his many telescopes so he could take pictures of the stars.

Volkswagens were an avocation for him. He enjoyed repairing, restoring, and enhancing his beetle, bus, and ghias.

Bill was a long-time resident of San Diego, California.  He retired and moved to Millcreek, Utah in 2017 to be closer to family support due to health issues.

We will miss his affection, ambition, curiosity, enthusiasm, friendship, and practical mindset.

Bill is survived by his siblings:  David E (Cindy) Lamph, Christina Royel Lamph (Richard) Heiner, and Marsha Ann Lamph (Marion) Terry. Bill was also loved by his extended family of nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was instrumental in keeping the family in touch.

Bill has been cremated and he did not want any services.  We will have a celebration of life at a future date.

See ya later, alligator!
