Mr. Rodney Joe "Bull" Campbell, 63, passed away Wednesday at Noland Hospital. Survivors include his wife of 45 years, Anita Campbell; two daughters, Jennifer Stowes and her husband, Calvin and Jolie Black Bear and her husband, Cheyenne; a grand-daughter, Autumn Dawn Campbell and her fiancé, James Davis; a grandson, Jacob Black Bear; brothers, Danny Campbell and Douglas Campbell. Rodney was born in Ohatchee in 1950. He graduated from Alexandria in 1969, where he played football, basketball and ran track. He married his high school sweetheart. He and Anita were together 48 years. He was a loving father and grandfather, his grandchildren were his pride and joy. He was an experienced outdoorsman who enjoyed being in the woods, deer hunting, fishing and serving as a guide. He worked as an avionics mechanic at Honeywell where he served on the Honeywell American Indian Council and was instrumental in establishing a scholarship for Native American Students in Alabama. He enjoyed singing at powwows and teaching other people about his culture. He was a skilled orator and was well-known for his ability to spin yarn. He never met a stranger and was always there when people needed help or someone to talk to. Friends and family were great distances apart, so it was Rodney's wish that instead of a formal memorial service, individuals gather where they are to remember him, tell stories, and "shoot the bull". In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to a family in need or a food pantry.
