Many teachers have touched a students life but Lt. Col. Campbell touched our heart and soul. I have learned so many life lessons from this great man and my heart was saddened to hear of his passing. May the Lord lighten the burden for his family and all that knew this wonderful man. Midview class of 1983

colonel campbell,
i find it difficult to find the right words to express what knowing you has meant to me. as a student in your jrotc programme, your influence helped guide me towards service in the usaf and service to our country beyond the military.
your strong, yet kind spirit remains with me to this day.
as a voulunteer at the planes of fame air museum, in chino, california, i often think of you as i walk amongst the aircraft used by the usaaf in ww ll, especially when i assist restoration volunteers workig to restore our B17 flying fortress. i often think of a young bill campbell, leaving "fortress england"on a mission to bomb strategic targets in nazi held europe. remembering how you once told me that if you weren't scared of what lie ahead of you, there was something wrong with you. yet off you went...facing death and destruction, all in the name of answering your nation's call.
service, courage, compassion. these seem to be the words that most accurately define your life. the things you have seen, the duties you have performed. the lives you have touched.
colonel, words fail me, but i thank you for what you have done for our grateful nation and i thank you for all you have done to help shape my life and all others who have touched by your dedication to service.
well done sir! rest in perfect peace. soar high sir, as you escape the bonds of this earth and reach out to touch the face of God.

Col Campbell was instrumental in starting my aviation career. At 14 he encouraged me to take flying lessons. I soled at 15 and earned my private pilots license at 16. Over the years I have obtained almost all flying licenses and ratings and now 30 years later we just opened a charter flight service. Rest in Peace my mentor. I still use your lessons from ROTC in my every day life. Thank You! Kim Whary, Midview High School Class of 1983.
