Jim, Stacy, Heather and Cheryl, and to all the Campbells:
So sorry to hear of Roberts passing. My thoughts are with you through this difficult time.

So sorry for your loss...I took the day off work to go to the wake ( and go to the dentist) but woke up with a stomach bug, so I will not be there to give my condolences in person. Mr. Campbell was a wonderful person...I will always remember those mornings riding in the back of his tiny car, his head almost bumping the roof inside, the year the bus company went on strike and he became my ride to school in junior high! He was the right mixture of tough and compassionate to be a good dad for those of us passing through his home. Heaven gains another good one!

Uncle Bob had the best sense of humor. He always kept you on your toes, you never knew what he was going to say next. He and Aunt Connie were perfectly matched that way ... she could dish it right back! I'm going to miss him very much but I have many wonderful memories. Thank you for that, Uncle Bob!

Mr. Campbell was my 5th grade teacher at Maple Ave. Such a great teacher. I have many memories of him. RIP.

My heartfelt sympathies to Mr. Campbell's family. I had him as a teacher many moons ago. He was a kind and caring man who made a lasting impression on his students. May he rest in peace.
