"Leslie George Preston Lampkin departed this world on Tuesday June 7, 2022.  He was born to the late Joseph Julius Lampkin and Madeline Lampkin on June 13, 1945.  Leslie was a life-long resident of Pittsburgh, Pa and attended Westinghouse High School.  Leslie was an avid baseball player and fan. He enjoyed listening to old school music and spending time with his grandkids and great-grandkids.  Leslie was very athletic especially in track and baseball.  He was a die-hard steelers fan and enjoyed watching football.  He married Shirley Mae Jackson on December 3, 1967 and raised their four children in Pittsburgh, Pa.  Leslie lived his life to the fullest and how he wanted. He was wild, crazy, and funny all at the same time, he was no Saint by any means or stretch of the imagination but he loved his family and always had their backs. Leslie is survived by his four children, Chrystal Lampkin, Monica Lampkin(Baldridge), Kenneith Lampkin and Leslie Lampkin. His grandchildren are David Eric Benson Jr., Brandon Benson, Delmar Taylor, Lamar Taylor, Asante Bey, Kenneith Lampkin, Dorean Lampkin, Draymond Jordan, Alexis Mcmiller, Christian Mcmiller, Julian Baldridge. Great grand-kids David Benson Jr. III, Dario Benson, King Benson, Jai'ciara Bey, Savyonna and Sieonna Bey, Zarena Bey. He is survived by his mother Madeline Lampkin, sister Carmela Melo,  brother Stanley Lampkin and niece Robin Melo and a host of nieces and nephews.  He is preceded in death by his wife Shirley Lampkin, father Joseph Lampkin, brother Lonnie Lampkin and grandsons Kenneith Lampkin Jr. and King Benson."
