KANSAS CITY, Missouri ― Lewis Wesley Stamps, Jr., 58, of Independence, Mo., passed away Sunday, March 20, 2016.

A visitation will be held from 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, March 23, at Speaks Suburban Chapel, Independence, Mo. A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 26 at Liberty Cemetery, Newton County, Ark.

Lewis was born June 3, 1957, in Kansas City, Mo., as one of three boys to Lewis and Rose Mary (Green) Stamps. He graduated from Northeast Jr. High, Truman High School, and University of Missouri. He worked numerous jobs, including convenience stores and security, but he especially enjoyed his job at Main St. Pawn where his interest for collecting jewelry, watches, and other items rich in history really grew.

He lived life to the fullest when he could. He loved scouting, earning Eagle Scout status and participated in Mic-O-Say as Shaman until the early 1990’s. He loved collecting GTO cars and related items. He was really good at Ping Pong and Darts. Lewis also loved music and could be caught playing violin, drums, the harmonica, a little guitar, and attending live music shows. His family remembers him as down to earth, despite all his hardships.

Lewis is loved and will be missed. Survivors include his parents, Rose Mary and Lewis; brother, Danny Stamps and wife Pegi of Blue Springs, Mo.; nephews, Nathan Stamps of Waldo, Mo., and Eric Stamps of Fayetteville, Ark.; niece, Melanie Stamps of Independence, Mo.; great niece Ava Stamps and special friend, Goldie Younce. He was preceded in death by four grandparents and a brother, Tommy Stamps. Online condolences may be expressed at www.speakschapel.com (Arrangements: Speaks Suburban Chapel 816-373-3600).
